Default Savage Steering modification...

There was mention made of this in another thread, but I couldn't squeeze in to ask about it for all the testosterone being flung about...

I have a JR 4721 (120 oz./in.- .19sec) to use for a steering servo. But I believe they were talking about a modification to the steering mechanism itself.

Can anybody clue me in?

i think you r talking about this kit.the gpm steering kit is surpported by 2ballbearings so works more smoothly and fits tight.as my own experience,after a period of bashing the stock steering set is bound to be loose which leads to unprecise control in steering.
maybe i spelled incorrectly~~inprecise or unprecise? who cares

Crop, does this kit come with a decent set of instructions or are you flying by the seat of your pants to get it installed. Looks like pretty good quiality in the pic anyway.

You don't mean the MP servo saver mod do you?
This mod replaces one of the steering uprights for a buggy style servo saver, it is fully ballraced and, you can fit a ally arm on your steering servo.
IMO the best steering mod available!!!!!
