I do not know if its just me. I find that the servo saver that comes with the T3'11 is not very durable. For mine, it fails to work well after about 8 runs and after that, the steering does not return.

Secondly, the upper deck is a little bit fragile. For some reason, my upper deck sheared off near the recess for the bearing holding the spur adapter. From my knowledge, I have not crashed my car at all throughout my runs. Hence, it is a little strange. It might be caused by me running the super soft flex setup.

Yeah, sadly the servo saver is like most on the market, and isn't great. I took mine apart and greased it, if that doesn't work I'll be putting on a kimbrough.

I finally got around to wiring up my car neatly, looks so much nicer now

Servo saver only lasts 8 runs and you broke the top deck, yet you say you haven't crashed it . Check Xray site with Hudy explaining how he found most people not assembling the car correctly causing excessive servo saver issues.

No servo saver problems here, or top deck, and I've tried to put it through the wall a few times, lol. Must be luck of the hits I guess.

Just rebuilt my shocks and they build much better 2nd time around. I also drilled the vent hole in the cap and that makes a massive difference for setting the rebound

Did you end up with no rebound?
