Thanks for the suggestions.

I was running my car outside and the car went into a curb at low speeds. I was suprised as nothing broke. Only the strapping tape came off and the plastic servo horn I took out of my RS4 3 shattered.

I was surprised as I found out there was no built in servo saver for this car.

I guess I'll just go with a Kimborough one.

Get the Kimbrough medium servo saver, much better than the std Tamiya one, which causes the car to wander when it starts to wear.

It seems that everyone likes the Kimbrough servo safer.

The Tamiya servo safer simply SUX...

I've set the Kimbrough servo saver on my car offset, so the outer top hole is vertical with the servo spline. This gives a little more travel on the steering if required. (similar to Evo 4)

Default Question above servo mount on 415

i got a servo that worked on evo4 before, therefore one side of the servo was cut to fit into the chassis. and now want to use it on 415, but not sure whether it can be mounted on 415 or not, please give me some advise.
and i found on some pics that 415 has 2 different types of servo mount, which one comes in the original kit (58320)?

croy; Just email them, stating you would like to order the kit. They'll put it all on back order, for when it comes released

DOMOisCOOL; Kimborough all the way... the std tam one is very very poor, develops lots of slop very quickly.

Superdate; that servo should be fine, as they mount the other way round in the 415. (your cut lug will be up top, with the horn to the left, facing forwards)

Hmmmmm, maybe I should get rid of my Tamiya one then. In all honesty, I've had no issues with the Tamiya servo saver. Having said that, I've never used another brand's one, so maybe I'll try out the Kimbrough.

Kimbrough all the way when I am racing 1/8.(Plus must show suport when racing with Scott Kimbrough at the track, haha). Anyway, I use the KO solid servo horn with the silver ring for my TRF415. I stop using the TAMIYA ones after one time at the Nationals, TAMIYA HQ in So-Cal. Just like the past post say, slop!

I don't know where you found that second picture, but it's nowhere near a std TRF415 kit anyway. It loks like a picture of the first prototype (from the shape of the shock towers) and they hadn't defined the full specs for the car yet.

As said earlier, your servo will be fine with what's provided with the car.

Oh and, Ive been using Kimbrough SS ever since I've used Tamiyas TRF series cars (back in the TRF414 days, only 5 yrs ago, lol). Wouldn't use anything else, maybe a std servo horn, but only outdoors not indoors.

Give me a yell when you do, and I'll grab one at the same time.

Hi to all,
can someone give me a killer setup for my MS with 26 mm. foams on outdoor asphalt ?
Or some guidelines about springs,oil,roll center,etc. ?
Ideal setup must be near setups with rubber on asphalt or similar to setups with foams on carpet ?
If you have experience with foams please help me ....
Thank you in advance to all !
