protc, I think you missed your calling in comedy.

You should be able to find it at any hardware store. Keep you eye out, some places sell individual sheets for only a couple cents, instead of making you buy a whole pack or multi-pack.

Can someone please explain the building of stock servo saver? I can't for the life of me figure it out

The manual indicates that I should rotate the servo arm 180 degrees but I can't see how it would be possible to do it.

I also kill my head doing it, but my three weeks of experience on this car tells you not to loose to much time on it and dont use it. Chris Ashton also dont use it. I had some problems with the aligment of the steering, take it out and no problem now.

Don't bother, it's crap.
The spring rubs on the servo when it's built

Go for it. You have the Futaba 9550 in the car and it can take it. Plus you have a PW bumper.

Pier pressure will get the best of you. I feel like you will be changing it before you run your first pack thru the car.
