    I've put the HPI SF-50WP servo in my Savage XL as a steering servo, only the thing doesn't work very well. It won't go back to neutral and barely turns the axles. However when I remove the link to the servo saver etc, the servo is fine and works and returns to neutral, but as soon as I link the...

    Spur gear destroyed

    so I have a savage XL, and for some reason, no matter what I do the spur gear always gets destroyed, it always starts to strip, I kinda looks like it's being ground down. Any help would be great, these are metal gears too.
