Default TL01 Servo Saver options? & Gear?

I need the part that connects to the servo saver. I have a JR or HITec servo i can use.
Also is there better servo savers that will fit?

thanks

get a Kimbrough KP201, it fits nicely and you can forget about it.

Just don't forget to put a nut with LocTite on the other side of the ball connector and do not tighten too much, just snug with the loctite will do the trick.

I'm not sure that Tamiya ever made a servo horn connector thing that was compatible with Hitec servos. Hitec is unique in that it uses 24 teeth on their servo horns and most everyone else uses either 23 or 25 teeth. Your only solution, as Starteur has posted, is to use an aftermarket one like the Kimbrough. You may get the 25T piece to fit but it will jump teeth at the slightest bump, throwing your steering off center.

Sorry, I got my numbers wrong. I've corrected my earlier post. Futaba has 25 teeth and JR has 23 teeth.
I did a Google search for "futaba servo horn teeth", substituting "futaba" for the company in question should give you the answers to your questions.
