    does anyone make steel servo horns?

    I have been looking for some steel servo horns since I have been stripping the aluminum ones doing big air jumps with my trx6

    Traxxas do one, part number TRX8247X
    About 7GBP
    You might find though that it will just force a break in the next weakest part.

    is it actually steel? I cant find anything that says what its made of just sintered metal I wish I could find one made of milled steel

    maybe I should just make my own its just some grinding filing drilling and tapping easy stuff really the only hard part will be broaching the splines

    I've got one of the traxxas ones, its magnetic and quite heavy.

    I don't know if it's steel or alloy, but it's definitely pretty tough, the one from Traxxas. If that won't last you, then you should look into making a custom one.

    I do think the Traxxas servo horn is an aluminum of sorts, I'm not 100% sure but I think it is.
    I don't think steel will make too much of a difference,
    Maybe consider a servo saver? A lot of companies make them, they might interfere with crawling a little but you should be fine with a really stiff one.
    Jumping: maneuver and pray it won't break.

    Can I point out how fun/absurd that sounds?

    It's not aluminium, I already checked my spare one and it's attracted by a magnet.
