For those who have not had any issues, you can go right ahead and thank mugen but for a person like myself, who had problems,i thank the people on this forum who did their own r&d to come up with solutions and share their info with the rest of us when mugen stayed silent.

Thank u Mugen
It is possible you can crack the upper piece if you over tighten any part that is plastic it will crack or strip just the same if your banging up your car on every corner something got to give
I had the same issue on my 1/8th i noticed it after some costly errors I made
I had cracked the upper piece servo saver plastic I have not had those issues with the sedan since it is much easier to drive than 1/8

I've had inconsistent steering since I built the car. When I would set-up my car I would have turn the wheel left or right then back to neutral and come up with a different toe measurements. I first thought it was my servo, but after reading posts regarding the servo saver problems "some" people encountered, I ordered an aluminum one. So far, my toe measurements have been consistent.
