    Hitec Servo Problem

    I have a Hitec Ultra Torque servo from like 3 years ago and I just Installed it into my 3905 and the servo horn dosent grip on to the gear. I thought the horn was stripped so I bought a new one and it turns out the horn is slightly to big for it. I've tried hot gluing it on but it didn't work. What should I do?

    Are you using a servo horn designed for a Hitec servo? If not, that could be your problem. The Traxxas servo horn (same as Futaba) will not work with a Hitec servo; they have a different number of splines on the servo output shaft.
