    8085 arm?

    Got my self a 8085 MG the other day, and planning on putting it in my 1/16 summit this weekend.
    is hear there can be problems with the arm fitting? is there a new one i can purchase?

    Just wondering if any one has any tips or tricks to drop em in!
    thanks.

    Do you mean 5085?
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    All the arms will require modification. The stock arm will not fit a HiTec servo... they are different spline counts.
    Basically, take one of the included and cut/modify it until it matches the stock horn... maybe a little longer.

    Heres an aluminium arm thats a direct fit, no modifying it. LOSA99038 its the hitec servo arm for the Losi 1/10 comp crawler. You could also check out the servo arm selection at the LHS and modify one as needed.

    I like my LOSA99038, but you will have to mod servo guard for it,FYI.
