Was it a hard crash? Do you use a servo saver?

It was a pretty good hit, but not hard enough to cause any other damage to the car. I was running the factory plastic horn.

I have a Kimbrough that I modded to extend the horn to the factory horn length, so will run that from now on.

I broke a front arm from a fairly soft hit, which was probably an accumulation of several incidents.

I guess my arms are next then.

I have an assortment of spares for the car, but considering I only drive this car and my M-Four 99% of the time, I'm thinking about just buying another kit to keep as a spare.

Thanks for the tip.

Yeah, if I can't source the replacement might as well just turn the servo and direct link it to the steering linkage.

Yeah, steering rack and floating servo mount really made the electronics easy to fit as well.

I'm in the process of changing over as well. How has it changed steering response?

It's very good. Not that the original is all that bad. But it is an improvement. But it really makes shimming your steering links a lot better. Better adjustments. The thing that really makes it special is the ability to put your electronics exactly where you want them. Better balanced car. But you need the floating servo mount for that. All of these parts have mounting holes on the chassis. It's like they foresaw all of these parts being used. One gotcha...if you use the floating servo mount, you'll need a different size servo turnbuckle.

I think you'll have a more even EPA with the servo turned sideways?

That bellcrank throws my numbers off.

On a separate note, I would like to see them do a new lower deck chassis update.. The current one is too wide and has too many cutouts.
