i was just looking around and people are always talking about servo savers what do they do, and does my nitro sport have them
Yes you do have a servo saver on your sport. If you look at the steering servo, where the turn buckles connect you will see a round white plastic thing. This is called a servo saver.

Yeah, the servo saver has a spring inside that will allow the tires to hit a curb or land hard and the spring will take the blunt of the hit instead of stripping out the plastic gears of your servo. They are more important on the Sport because it has direct steering. It is better to replace a $3 part than a $12-50 part depending on how nice your servo is.
Just thought I would elaborate so you knew the reason they are used instead of standard linkage to the Servo.

I run my truck hard enough that i strip my servo gears regardless. My advise is if you don't mind a little extra weight, and power consumption, go with the all metal servo (@$30). It's a great upgrade that will alow you to thrash and not worry about a servo stripping again.
I want to see the $30.00 all metal gear servo. The cheapest one I could find was $40.00 and it wasn't worth the box it was sold in. GO ahead and get the good stuff (HiTec) if possible.
