Default S9550 servo saver

I purchased a S9550 servo today for my RDX. I was looking around various websites for a servo saver. Zero results. Who makes them? Thanks

DO NOT use the smaller, Futaba-specific servo saver for a touring car. That servo-saver is designed for a 1/12th scale car, and the spring in it is not strong enough for a touring car (at least on carpet or other high-traction surfaces). It will work, but you will not get all of the torque your servo can provide.

The saver you need is the Kimbrough 201, which is the "Mid-Size w/ holes".


This one is strong enough for a sedan, but smaller than their "Large" servo saver, which would not fit in the RDX.

I bought that Kimbrough saver for my Tamiya MRE:s S9550 and i test it yesterday and it works great.

When i drove RDX earlier i use KO highspeed servo w/o saver, so i can`t say is it too small to your RDX. As i remember wright i use Yokomo long servohorn then..

Just my 2 cent
