see pics attached. the only way i see this servo working is if i trim out the piece that i circled. should i do that or just get a different servo?

Are you mounting the servo mounts correctly ?? They should attach to the servo behind the tabs. The piece you have circled has nothing to do with it if you put the mounts on the other side.

I believe the steering arm that connects to the servo saver is on backwards also. I looked up the manual. I think you have it on backwards and therefore the servo is sitting back to far on the chassis. Take a look. Around page 14 I think.

We've all done it !! Glad I could help. Thank goodness Tamiya manuals are so good and available for download. We're all newbie's until we can say we know it all.....and THAT isn't happening anytime soon.

There's some great pit bags out there but they're crazy expensive to ship for some reason. The next storage/tool container I get will likely be the Stanley Fat Max that you can buy at most Lowes or Home Depot's. You might find a good deal on a used hauler bag here on rctech. Look for the ones with the plastic type drawers. The cardboard ones become useless pretty quickly.
