i broke a steering servo racing at a back yard track the other day. i would like to keep using the same stock servo, i could have sworn i saw a slash on here with a black plastic trx servo skid...
Just as the title says, I was wondering if any of you have done it? If so was it a direct bolt in replacement? What ratio did you run? What would be the closest stock equivalent?

don't be dramatic haha all i have to do is through the stock tires back on. i just wanted it to hook up, where i live is very silty and the stock tires don't cut it. and just fyi trophey trucks do...
i run the flat irons with stiffer foam and it works fine with a little bit of trimming
