Interested in the roche part numbers as well.

Also curious as to why everybody says the xray servo saver does not work ? just built mine with it.

Just to be sure of the version, you are able to use this servo saver:

I use the Kimbrough medium, lower holes, with the rest ground off.

There are some pics of Keven Hebert's 1/12 on the Reedy FB page. I would do whatever he does!

The Reedy Black Box 410R speed control has been discontinued because the source is no longer available. We will have to do with something else. Can not even get them repaired. Very unfortunate as it is a very fine speed control.

I use the pivots with the one sided flange in the pic. You can use the others as well. In fact the double sided flanged pivot balls would be better up top with .18 springs as you wouldnít have to run as many shims. Note the lowers are pretty tight in associated pivot ball bushings. However the Roche plastic bushings the balls sit in have a larger od. Youíd have to clearance the Carbon arms. Iím going to just cut my own arms with a little more material around the bushing next and use the Roche plastic bushings for free movement.

I tried and didnít like the fitment. A little too wide longitudinally and it rubs on the chassis. Stock one holds up just fine to me.

OK but they only include an Airtronics one.

I use the Kimbrough small saver and have had no issues with it. I use a Futaba 9650 servo.

That's what I also use, but my last outing with the car I blew one up, not sure where the spring went. It's the second time that I can recall this happening in over 17 years of on and off racing.

What do you guys do for the steering servo? I cannot get either of the Savox SH-1250MG 1/12 scale servo and the KO Propo RSx12 1/12 scale servo to fit in and center.


First the servos mounting as normally with them in front of the Servo Mount Standoff as per the proper way to install as per manual bumps into the lower graphite suspension mounts and will not slide over enough to center and then even when mounting the servo with the ears behind the Servo Mount Standoffs and bolting them in from the rear, they still don't center even though you can slide them all the way over and then they are too far back by the time the servo saver would even go on you would have to shim up the graphite Servo Mount Brace to fit it on as it is supposed to be in the open area as it sits below the top of the chassis plane just a bit.


Picture is with the RSx12 servo all the way over and that is 39mm center to center of the mount holes vs the Savox 42.5mm center to center which I thought would of make it to have the servo spline center up with the chassis.

I use the Rsx 12. I just dremeled the right side screw holes for the floating servo mount about 1-2mm iirc and it got me on Center. In your photo notice the right side is bottomed out all the way right, but the left still has room? Grind that right side a bit and youíll be good to go.

Is your servo in front of the posts or behind like mine in the picture?


The servo does bump into the graphite lower arms in front of the posts.
