    tired of the slop in the mechanism box and short throws?

    Try this, 1" aluminum angle cut out, drilled and tapped.

    The steering is much more solid, and easier to adjust. Fits blazer or hilux bodies w/ a standard size servo and looks good.

    Mounty or Bruiser

    Here a small guidance for the change of the steering servo.
    Importantly here the possibility was for me,that the change can be cancelled at any time.
    By the change the vehicle drives itself clearly better.The mounting plates for the servo can be very simply manufactured.The original screws and drillings are used for the attachment.
    Here a few pictures in addition:

    nice
    one thing I'd do different is the servo saver though, that's a Tamiya one right? A bit weak, I'd use a kimbrough 121.
    Nice job, if you don't mind I'd like to copy the pics and put them in the faq above.

    So far the Servosaver for me is enough,that had I straight available.Yes, correctly, it is the original of Tamiya.
    Gladly you can use it for the FAQ.

    any chance you could make up a full size template i could just print and transfersaving me time on fabrication?

    this is EXACTLY what I've been looking for, for my project truck. I found the stock steering to not be very effective in the trials course

    I provided a design of the mounting plates.
    I hope, everyone can recognize everything well.
    All measure data are in millimeters.The second mounting plate should have mirror-operated naturally.Mass can deviate on use of other Servos.
    My bank data for the 20$ fee come later :p
