GLA Servo Issues

I purchased the gla a while back for my garage racing with friends (RCP rough side, HFAY configs). I really enjoyed the build and I was impressed by the apparent quality of the parts. However, I have had some issues with the servo... specifically, it seems to break rather easily. I'm on my second one right now, having replaced the gears in the previous one.

Is anyone else running into problems with the servo? I know there was mention of servo issues early on, but I'm a little surprised at how fragile it seems to be at this point. Does anyone have a remedy they've used with success?

I want to love this car, but right now it sees a lot of shelf time because my MR03's are much, much tougher.

Broke another servo today.

Is anyone else running this car? If so, are you experiencing similar issues?

If you aren't able to get the information that you want here then contacting the manufacturer might not be a terrible idea.

Just a thought.

How exactly gears failing? My thinking is epa on radio not set correctly, no servo saver that could be another factor?

Just found out that they now sell a servo saver. That did not come with the original kit... appears others must have had the same issue.

I ordered one and will report back after some use.
