Default Servo Guards

Are servo guards worth it or do they help to over-heat it?

How would adding an aluminum heat sink, that protects, hurt?

You can make your own, I do.

I think they are worth it. Unfortunately my rigs spend some time upside down, and I don't like expensive servos taking direct hits. Never noticed any overheating issues with high powered servos.

I use one on my XR10 and it has helped keep the abuse off the servo and it doesnt heat up at all. I think they are a good investment regardless.

I won a Chaotic Crawlers drawing for one of these and they are the lightest I've seen.


Servo Armor Standard Size & 7980 Size

I personally think that vanquish or chaotic crawlers are the best and I have used both. They are both great though

Looks like ill be stealing the servo guard off the tmaxx this weekend. Been thinking that it would be cool to build a custom bent bar setup that comes off the axles. Just dont know how to make it strong enough.

Ok so I'm running a futaba 9157 servo on my xr10 an I'm looking for a guard that will fit properly. I tried the vanquish guard an non of the holes line up at all.. It seem as if my servo is a little bigger that the hightech ones. I can't find one anywhere :( . Any help would be awesome. Thanks

You might try one of these from Rowdy. He makes 'em right or left notch and they just stick on with the supplied two sided tape.

Its a fad... Servo cases are cheap.. The only reason I would run one is to for the clamping support to the servo ears..
