    Another Question??

    If I have the steering bellcrank that has the servo saver built into it, can I run the aluminum bellcranks that they make for it? After 1 hour of practice and a night of racing the bushings in my bellcrank now wear out that fast and allow for alot of "slop" in the steering and I trying to get around that.

    Use 4x8x2.5 bearings in the new style bel crank. Mine last forever. The center link on the trx alum crank has no bushings or bearings, and wears out, causing slop, and unfortunately there is no real fix for this short of buying another alum crank. The 4x4 spec plastic bel crank with built in saver (or the more expensive pro-line crank with built in adjustable saver) is the best option. Just get some bearings for your current crank. That should be the cheapest and most long lived fix.

    rag6 is totally correct, i went and bought the aluminum bellcrank and was not the least bit happy with it after about a week, i ended up just putting ball bearings in the stock crank.
