Anybody find a better servo saver that will fit the ta-07? I am tired of the slop that develops after a few months in the stock kit one. Does the aluminum horn that Tamiya makes offer a permanent improvement in the slop?

Well, I had a good day with my TA07 saturday.

Though, I did start off the day with breaking a suspension arm. Which.. I've never done before. And bent a suspension pivot pin, which I HAVE done before. Otherwise the car went great. All of my replacement arms were carbon, versus the hard nylon, so that may have even helped things a bit. I also found the front lip of my PSM chassis had split between layers. I clamped that and glued it with thin CA.. that seemed to take care of that.

I should have sealed the edges of the PSM parts.

... Now I just need to find those two seconds a lap.

Servo adapters won't be an issue. The issue is that unless the servo saver has a lot of offset, it will hit the chassis. I'm not sure that the x-ray servo saver has that kind of offset.

ive never heard of your issue. Post a pic so I can understand what you talking about

if your saying theirs no room for a servo saver because of the top chassis plate. All you have to do is install the servo saver in an angle. And you may possibly have to dremmel some of the servo saver off. Not a big deal at all

the only thing you would have to do is buy some spurs and pinions as the kit one is .6mod which are pretty hard to find in other sizes. I swapped to 48p, just about any standard ones fit. This makes it easier to get the right FDR for 21.5T

otherwise the TRF418 swaybar kit and a spring kit is useful for some tuning options.

once that was done I found I needed the carbon stiffeners as I had too much flex for the track. I would try it before buying these though

I also found that getting the alloy suspension blocks made a big difference and meant I didnt need to shim to remove play in the arms. I like them but they are probably a nice to have rather than essential

Correct, Tamiya hopups only unless an exception is specifically called out in the TCS rules. For example, the Exotek TB04 motor mount was deemed OK for Tamiya USA races a few years back (would not be legal in Japan).

I feel your pain. I switched to a Tamiya fixed aluminum servo horn. I can confirm also that the Yeah Racing aluminum servo saver will fit. It has to be the compact one part #YA-0557BU or BK or RD depending on which color you prefer. It will also last much longer than Tamiya and doesn't develop slop. It is springs like an xray saver. Xray will not without chassis modification.

Thanks for the info. I purchased the Tamiya aluminum servo horn and that took out the slop for now, but it remains to be seen how long that will last.
