I to have seen some funny things happen to servo horns over the years and have seen both plastic and alloy horns have issues...I would rather use the supplied good quality plastic servo horn..in fact it has an alloy brace around its base to stop it from stripping.. on an ace servo than an ill fitting futaba horn on an ace servo.
also set youre epas, set youre servo saver correctly and you should be good to go.

When i bought my 1313 i picked up a kimbrough saver and when i finally went to mount it i was amazed with the amout of slop between the insert and the servo spline. awful. Almost like how i run my play in the gear mesh!

Anyways i tried the smaller kimbrough futaba specific saver and it fit similar to the first. Frustrated I decided to order an Associated saver for it and it fit perfect!


Hopefully i will have good luck. IDK maybe i just got a bad batch of kimbroughs. But i had bought one in the past and it fit considerably better.
