HSN = high speed needle housing, the other end goes around the throttle arm just as the diagram illustrates

Wow, I watched the video! Your servo saver is fragged. You could put ten springs on there and still have problems! That goldish steel ring between the throttle & brake is a spring steel split ring sort of thing. Take the saver apart and reassemble per the manual. I have had my screw come loose before(no pun intended) & that spring gets dislodged from the groove in the saver. Good vid by the way!

Thats really good advice thank you i will redo it!
Most guys switch to a slider/spring throttle setup. Less slop than the stock saver thing.

This is how I have my current X setup, the horn on the servo is solid:


The "sliders" and collars are just traxxas parts.

These were linkage setups on previous savage's I had:

well it only took one run with the savage to lose the carb return spring, not going to get another one. i will look into what olds97 recommended and i have a few ideas of my own.

you must of not clipped it right, because installed correctly those thing are hell of a hard to remove!!! check the teeth on the servo saver all so. they could be stripped...

You may be right i may have put it on wrong. i think i found a better setup to replace the whole mess. that is if Irma don't blow us away.
