Default RIP - Shift servos I have killed

So far using the attached linkage setup and EPAs set.

1x Thunder Tiger 1510mg
1x Hi-Tec HS5645mg

Should I get something with 270oz-in or more torque??

Im fairly hammering a quicrun 13.5t sensored brushless and the vicious drag brake of the mamba X.

Try using a longer rod and springs on both sides.

Will give that a go. Setups I had seen only had one spring.

I haven't gotten my hands on mine yet. But would a normal 1:10 servo saver mount up and then have the linkage solid? I've got a couple from my RTR crawlers.

The issue with the standard setup for me at least when using the full size servo is getting the shift Shaft to move in a straight line. Mine using the standard setup for push the shaft to the left which would add so much drag that it wouldnt shift. So I came up with the pivoting rod support. Which is much like an Ofna nitro throttle horn. But I just didn't want to pay for it.

Flip the servo so that the angle of the rod is reduced by being longer and further away from the actuator. Maybe. I see what you're saying about the pivot piece. I can't get HobbyKing to load on my crappy wifi at work. But what about a linear type servo for a landing gear or retract on an airplane?
