They're coming, it's just a matter of time, this pic is off of VP's website, for the shock adjuster. They look SUPER BEEFY!




Not to get too far off of OP's point, back OT I think it is awesome to see these without a servo saver, because of how terrible the original design was. Might have to replace my STRC stuff...

Lol yea, that'll do it. sadly it seems the only way to maximize the steering. I run mine with the spring and one cheapo bearing to allow some flex when I do an oopsie.

Wish they'd been out a few days ago when I placed an order. Would've saved shipping for a second order

It's like my second time I hit a tree in the 4 months I've had.

I'll be getting one of these too, as I lock my servo saver and that plastic arm has snapped so often.

Kelsie, I never noticed that CVD in that pic before, good spot!

I was less than impressed with my VP rack, hope for you guys that the bellcranks are better. Likely just aluminum copies of plastic parts though.

What is it about the rack you didn't like?

Mine rubs on the centre drive shaft a bit at the front.

A half a second view of the picture posted will clearly show the difference between a stock part and the new rack. You're slipping Jacob.

How is this VP part any better than say the STRC or HR parts, though? I have the full STRC bellcrank setup and have yet to have any issues with it. So what makes the VP part any better other than it's VP?

Well it replaces the servo saver completely, no more needing to mod the current one to lock it out. Hopefully this will be stronger, because as you see above the arm on the plastic one tends to snap often with the mod in place.

Tis true, old age is setting in for sure. They got rid of the servo saver spring design!

I just want someone to fix the less than ideal entire geometry of the steering system, guess that likely won't happen. Or maybe it just can't happen given the space without a ton of redesign that won't be bolt in.

So other than replacing the very lacking servo saver, its not any better for someone who already has an entire aluminum bellcrank setup and Dude Rang eliminator.

What servos are people running that use this or eliminate the servo saver. I could never keep mine alive when I did the mod. Thanks
