Dual servo on 2.0 dbxl gas?

I have a good high torque hilatronics servo right now running solo, but it really isn't cutting it. I have mx57 badlands tires right now so they are bigger and beefier and even with the upgraded servo I can't get the steering arm to max travel. I'm thinking about running a dual servo setup since the buggy already has an extra slot for another servo, but I'm not sure what steering arm brackets I'd need and etc so I could run it. Anyone got any places to start on? I've tried researching dbxl-e 2.0 videos but their steering setup is pretty different from the dbxl 2.0 gas.

Have you set your end points on your transmitter? What are you expecting out of a more powerful servo? If the right is sitting still and it's struggling a bit sure I get it but it's when it's moving where it matters. I had the hilantronics servo on my vekta and it was able to go full lock in both directions with the rig standing still.

- BEC voltage, have you set the ESC to 8.4v
- End points/travel, is that on 100 or more on your radio
- Servo saver spring too loose, have you checked

I think you'll find it will be any one or more of them, all of the Hilly servos have more than enough torque ;)

**edit** lol. Ignore the BEC voltage bit you're running the gassser

Travel set to L128/R150. It wont go full lock on most surfaces but sometimes it does on the grass. Sometimes I just gotta snap it in one direction then back and it goes all the way. I'm gonna check the servo saver, etc tonight and see whats up.

I'll check that spring that may be it.
