If you can not position the servo in a way that will work then you do need a reversing y harness. But you should have no trouble getting it to work by just flipping the servo or arm.

No sir I don't think flipping the servo will work. Been done. The direction of the movment stays the same.

Then your not doing it right. Flipping the servo or the arm will reverse the direction of the movement. If the servo is mounted to the axle then automatically it should be reversed when you install one on the rear axle. Buy simply flipping the servo horn around you can see that it changes the travel direction.

Are you saying have the horn pointing up instead of down??

See this is actually for my brothers crawler..... I haven't been able to put my eyes on it myself...

Myself, I bought a 3ch radio.

Anyway. the reversing splitter above, will or will not work? has adjustments or not?

By complete mistake I found out a little info.............

Futaba and hi-tec servos run opposite than each other right out of the package. No special slpitter no re-wireing. My sons wheely king had a servo in it (hi-tec) that was acting up so I pulled it and put in a spare futaba. When I tried the new servo I had to reverse the channel on the radio. Not until later last night, while sitting around did I realize what I found out.

I think my brother is going to be happy and upset all at the same time .
