    If you're tried of all the flex in the servo mount while turning in the Arrma Kraton this servo mount upgrade will certainly fix the flex issue.

    The results speak for themselves...

    Have you done this Woody?

    Does the plate sit tightly on the posts? No rocking?

    There is someone right now taking orders for custom machined aluminum mounts for the Arrma 1/8ths on the Arrma 1/8 group on fb. Things look perfect, I'll be ordering one.

    I see that no one has followed up on if this works well or not.

    I have ordered all the parts and so far have the posts and washers. The servo plate has been delayed once and should be shipped on the 26th.

    Once I get the plate I will update with my thoughts and if it works for me.

    You should tell said person about ArrmaForum.com, I bet he or she would get a few orders ;)

    Welcome to Arrma Forum @WilderRC3, looking forward to hearing your thoughts about this upgrade!

    I have all the parts for the for the mount upgrade now.

    But unfortunately I managed to blow apart both shocks on the right side of my Kraton.

    The front is the same. I am going to order stock replacement parts, then finish the servo mount upgrade.

    How is it going everyone. I decided to mock up the servo mount since the car is just sitting and I have a dilemma. The servo plate seems to be the wrong dimensions. I will have to get my dads digital caliper to verify. If anyone has any ideas I am open to them.

    I was thinking about taking a dremel to it but I am unsure if it will hold its structural integrity.
