Mine is actually set at 39.5mm with a Sanwa VRX.
Should I set longer too? How much?
Thanks

The end-points is fine but could you define "a little longer" for the link? If it matters, I am using a Hitec 5945 servo.

Thanks

I wouldn't know how much longer. But we changed the angle between the two parts of the servo saver. Before at maximum left throw the saver and the link to the servo would be almost in a straight line which was not ideal.

You want to get the saver in the center position with the servo arm leaning slightly forward.

If you get equal throw in both directions with close left/right end point settings on your transmitter you're ok.

So the angle of the mounts has changed a little bit. I will keep that in mind when I install it. Should the lever hit either of the front bulkheads? It looks very close right now. Need I be concerned about the clearance at the front pully?

It's great having you here for assistance.

Thanks alot.

Jim

Unhappy Where has The Border shop gone?

Just wanted to go to the Border shop and it's not there!!!

Trying both www.the-border.com and www.the-border.nl land me at a Computer parts retailer (Dijkstra Online Shop)

Have they been hacked?

Mark.

Julius, you're referring to the 44.5 mm linkage in the manual?

Jim, are you using oneway front or a the front ball diff?

If you're using the front ball diff, then you need to change to the new 2 piece diff clamp that comes packaged together with the new servo saver (802145) for better clearance. Or you can get that part separately (802387).

You mean you mount the rear sway bar link on the inside of the rear lower arm (the manual suggest the outer part)?

Mounting it inside gives a softer setting.

Ah... You have the new option part (802325)? I got that some time already but never thought of installing it.
