Default Which part is the servo saver?

I have a tt-01, which part is the servo saver?

Btw, the servo arm I had was for a sanwa, and I had a futaba servo. So I made a custom Servo arm. Will that effect anything?

The servo saver is the multi piece servo arm that comes with the kit. Typically there are 3 main pieces...the servo adapter, the spring, and the servo arm. The kit comes with 3 servo adapters so you should be using the one labled Futaba not Sanwa. On top of that goes the spring which is either a metal or plastic split ring, then the servo arm goes on top of that.

you're servo saver is what's stated above ^^^ lol

but most other TC's have a built-in servo saver in the bellcrank. so if your using a normal servo arm you're beuilt in use will save you.

i think its best to use a servo saver if your rusty and your on track. when your better and have more skill you could get a direct servo arm and it will cut a lot of stearing slop and use strong servos just in case

Default servo safe

I strongly feel that servo saver is a MUST have item. So much more cheaper to replace(if ever...) than a servo, or servo gears in a higher spec servo.

For more precise/stronger steering linkage, try the after market like Kimbrough's http://www.rcplanet.com/Kimbrough_Servo_Saver_s/465.htm or Tamiya 50473 Hi-Torque Servo Saver if you're after the TCS...

What exactly does it do? Take impact from your wheels or something?

It saves your servo... thus it is called a servo saver

That is exactly what it does. The spring absorbs the impact so less stress is transferred to the servo gears. Without that many servos would strip the gears in an impact.
