I think part of the servo horn problem is due to not having a servo saver so there's no give in a collision. Breaking the horn is a lot better then the servo. I have a few friends who've already broken a few. I saw that the LCG kit comes with a servo horn servo saver. I was curious to find out if I could buy it seperately to use on the BD

servo horn comes in a set of 3 for $3 i think. if you use a servo saver.. the force of the impact will be transfered somewhere else. a turnbuckle? the steering plate? maybe the knuckle? ill take my chances with breaking the horn. and your right, id rather break the horn than the servo itself.

plus if someone is gonna hit you that hard, or hard enough to break something, a $3 part is better than something else thats more expensive. like an arm or something

Actually, the point of the servo saver is to absorb as much of an impact as possible so that the force doesn't get transferred somewhere else. that's what the springs in a servo saver are for. They gave during an impact

I put a kimbrough medium servo saver on my car as I built it and it works perfectly. I've also heard of people using a tamiya one with no problems as well. I'd rather have the servo saver give in a wreck than break a servo horn or servo itself and not finish the race.

Default Tamiya High Torque Servo Saver

Tamiya High Torque Servo Saver is the answer to all your problems, I just followed the suggestions from one of the guys here

Get the Black one (looks better), trim the edges that you do not need and use thread lock!
