One of them might end up too close or interfering with the servo saver cut-out.

Also, Turnigy has the TGY-211DMH servo which is identical in size to the 212 and also has a Futaba 25 spline output. It's half as fast but almost twice the torque. (just a bit less than a standard Futaba S3003 servo)
I don't think it's really fast enough for a 1/12 pan car but I mention it because it's a direct fit replacement for the Traxxas 2065 servos that are used in the 1/10th Summit for shifting the transmission and locking the diffs. It has the same torque as the Traxxas 2065 but is twice the speed. It has metal gears and works great in the Summit. (either the 211 or 212 will work fine) They don't advertise them as being waterproof but I get my Summit pretty wet and it's holding up sofar.

I'm still running a Turnigy TGY-212DMH. It has been in the car since new and has never been replaced. It's been hammered a bit but is holding up. It isn't as powerful as some of the other options but it is stronger than my servo saver and it's lightning quick. It also uses a regular size Futaba 25 spline drive.
Thank you 1/8 IC Fan and Radi0Flyer for the information on this servo.. Might be something to look into if a friend and I need new servos in the future..

Another servo to look at is the TrackStar TS-P12S servo. It's a reliable and fast servo.

I have to admit to being a bit of a servo junkie. That one has been on my wishlist for a while now but never got one to try out. I think I have a Tamiya F1 that needs a servo...

It's been quite some time since the team posted a setup for people to try so I figured I would post what several of us have been running as of late for people try. This is the setup we most recently ran on a high speed tight track at the Hudy Race in St. Louis. If your track is on the new CRC Black Carpet and you are looking for something that reacts quickly, especially through the tighter sections of the track I would strongly recommend trying this.

Front:
.45 front springs
.25-.5mm front droop
5degree castor blocks
2 shims back
.25deg camber
2.5mm roll center shim
Losi Smart Diff Grease on the kingpins
Brass pivot balls
Ballstuds on steering knuckles shimmed up 2.5mm
(Make sure that the turnbuckles are level and that they are parallel to the front of the chassis or have a slight forward sweep)
166mm front width
CRC Purple Stripe - 39.5-40mm

Rear:
35wt shock oil
AE blue or NEW crc purple center spring
.50mm of spacing under the front side link
.50 CRC side springs - outboard position
2mm pod up-travel
15,000wt diff fluid in the tubes (can use 1 tube of 10k and 1 tube of 20k as an option)
172mm rear width
CRC Purple Stripe - 40-40.5mm

CRC Audi R8 Body in 17.5
CRC Lola Body in 13.5

Option Parts:
New CRC LCG Rear Pod
New CRC Double Clamping Hub
New CRC Dampener Tube Ballstuds

If anyone has any questions about this setup I would be more then willing to answer, just let me know either on here or on Facebook.

If you use double-face tape or shoe goo, you should add a small spacer under the servo support, it seems that it is not horizontal...

Yeah it's a bit off. It was one of those "It ain't broke so don't fix it" kind of things.

I'm just going to move the servo back a bit and use both mounts I think.

Please provide details around the .5mm shim under the front link mount. Does this involve rear-steer?

That would be correct. It's not going to give you more steering but it will help the car get through the corner a little easier. Some people have been running even larger shims but I think the car has enough rotation that by adding .5mm we are able to keep a very neutral feel.

Kave,

Did you use a roll center shim?

I did run a roll center shim, thanks for pointing out that I forgot to add that! The roll center shim really doesn't take away steering it's just going to make the feel much more linear as it reduces the camber gain to reduce that sharp hook mid corner.

I like the gen2 trackstar 1cell. tekin rspro should work but might need a booster .. Is the mamba sensored
