    This will work http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hitec-Standa...item232699d48b
    Might have to shorten it a little but that's not hard

    I also have the same question but with a twist, I recently purchased a Hitec HS-82mg. It appears to work fine but the servo horn looks so weak in comparison to the stock Traxxas servo horn from the stock servo. I recently purchased the horn mentioned above however I'm still using the stock Traxxas servo hardware and the stock servo saver. What issues should I expect if I use the metal servo horn as mentioned above if any? Should I now purchase a metal servo saver or am I good?
    It is for a 1/16 MERV and I just bash around with my son but let it off the chain at times. I'm running stock motor with 2, 2s Lipos.

    I just bought a HR Servo horn to fit the MERV.
    VXS24SH02 clicky
    24t bolts on to the Hitec HS85/82 no problems, great fit too as its made for the truck.

    Aluminum horns are ok... but it has been proven that the aluminum servo savers actually do the exact opposite; they fry your servo from making it work too hard... even aftermarket ones.

    Made for the traxxas 1/16 so it accepts the stock link with no mods too. I think they make a 25t as well as a replacement for the stock horn too.

    Send via most likely stolen wifi...

    So what can we do to get more durability into that part? I have had three breaks, and not from abusive driving. I was thinking about replacing the part that keeps breaking (the part where you bolt up the linkage from the servo). I am already working with an aftermarket metal gear servo. Since you have to buy the whole steering setup to get the one piece I need, I don't want to keep doing that.

    Replace the part at the top right with aluminum and keep the rest stock:

    Except for possibly the "Y"...

    That would make it so the slip joint is not aluminum on aluminum, but aluminum on plastic.

    I am not having bad results with the HR servo saver, using the stock spring and setting it as loose as possible.
