Save yourself alot of trouble an take the motor screws and tip the motor "endbell" up and you'll be able to get a larger pinion on and off without removing the top deck.

In my opinion that aluminium lipo holders are totally unnecesary. The only real reason to use this is if you are looking for a cosmetic option part.

I'm actually adding lead to the electronics side to balance left&right wheight with the new 6200 batteries, It has no sense to add more wheight to the battery side.

Just my opinion

i'm putting weight on the electronics side of my car to balance it. And if they don;t fit the battery any better then I'd say they are a waste

Alum parts always look nice though.

The thin version weigh .20oz and the thick version weigh .25oz. which comes out to around 5 grams which is nothing. I swapped the thick ones with the stock units on my car and there was no difference in handling or lap times Obviously they are more resilient than the stock units and they look cool!

Personally, 24 / 26 USD for a piece of orange aluminium holder, is really unnecesary. Xray plastic ones are really hard and make the function correctly.

Those could prevent a electronic yard sale. Where are they available?

rchalt.com and I have some with me. They also make a Titanium layshaft that I've been using for over 6 months now. The guy that makes it all is a local buddy of mine.

Fred,

One of the things I disliked about 009 aluminum holders was the way the locating pin only recessed about half way through the carbon. I had a rough wreck on asphalt and the aluminum holders bent and tweaked enough to allow the holder to rotate and kind of shear the CF out and away from the locator hole (of course nothing else broke! ). The quality of the aluminum would also need to be top notch considering the amount of leverage the battery might have on them. Very nice work though. Good to see ya!

Thanks Andrew and ditto! Attached is a pic of the holder pin installed. The depth of the pin is the same as the "Front-Rear" and "Rear-Front" suspension mounts.

Default Stock Servo saver?

Anyone else having issues with the servo saver? Mine broke with a 25.5. I tried to use an aluminum servo arm and then broke the plastic steering bell crank. Is there an alternative to the stock Xray servo saver?

Fred do those fit more tightly around the battery? The stock units have a lot of battery play and don't support well.
