compared both solutions, servoholder gives more clearance and visible more flex under the servo (on the bench ;-) )

The servo mount is a direct fit for all TC6.x chassis.
I am currently out of the latest version but I can sell you the model without the battery stay and then update you with the new upper plate when I have more made. (ran out of 2.5mm carbon plate)
Price is $20 each.

I race fairly regularly at HobbyTown USA, We can meet up there.

I'm with you in theory but in reality can you feel the "unwanted steering action" when driving ? Surely different cars have this effect to different degrees. Not just brand but 1/8th vs 1/12th and so on....

Talking Hmmmm

Physics 101.
Turn your car over.
Look at how many bolts are in the bottom.
Now look at how they are distributed.
If its not even,flex will be at an altered state.

Bolts down the centre should only be to hold weights for the axis(y axis),to roll on the "x" axis,(roll centre).
The more area you can measure from bulkhead to bulkhead without a screw bolting down something ie servo,battery straps,the more evenly your area of carbon will flex with EFFECT,and alter how the car feels,and will be more precise,from left to right.

They also look cool.

Now turn your car onto its wheels and go play!.......
Tim.

Floating your Lipo would have a greater impact than the servo.

The servo weighs around 50gr, whereas the Lipo weighs around 300gr. That is a good chunk of the total weight of the car.

That's STATIC weight.
The chassis flexes just fine underneath it,and,it's even weight.
When your car if fully loaded,(transponder battery,fans),get four individual small scales,place them under each wheel,and if its even,YOUR CAR will be awesome.
If its REALLY out,


Tim

Tim
The chassis flexes when the Lipo is just sitting on it, but not the same flex when you strap it down with tape.

In addition to what everybody else has said a floating servo holder is really great in RC boats.
