uhh why would you want to go to one servo... your turning is going to suck. whats wrong with leaving it at 2, where it kicks ass?

hmm ic. people really do freak out about weight that much? lmao god the pro's of being a baasher, who gives a damn about a couple oz's lol. i dont have a revo any more but im trying to think of how the steering was set up. you cant just disconnect one side? take the servo out, and the linkage and just leave it off, and then only run the one servo from the other side?

That's all there is to it. I removed one servo and the splitter. If you are extremely anal about weight loss, you can trim the plastic from the steering linkage that connected the servo you removed.

I removed one, but left just a stock one there. I think it still steers great.

I went to a single steering and not only do i get better performance, but more battery runtime, because the origional servo's kept fighting each other
