I'm installing the pivot studs on my Futaba servos, I noticed that this studs are made to fit on Metal geared servos, I have to install 3 of them on plastic gear servos, should I just screw those in, damaging the plastic gear?? what if I have to use the original screw in the future for another Heli?? I would have to change the gears, wouldn't I?
I know it's like the easiest step on the building process but i just want to make it right.

Thanks

I decided to use the 3mm studs on my Futaba 9202 plastic geared servos. I tried to simply screw the 2.5mm studs into the output gear, but it didn't feel very secure. I didn't want to take any chances with this critical fastener in my Fury Extreme. If you want to use the 3mm studs, the output gear must be drilled with a 2.5mm bit before using an M3 x .5mm tap. Gear sets are very cheap(less than $10 retail), so if want to use the original screws later, all you have to do is replace the gears. If you like, you can send your output gears to me and I would be glad to drill and tap them for you. All I would ask for is return postage.

On kindof a side note, I would also recommend shortening down the carbon things that space the girdles so that the girdles sit fairly close to the top of the servo. I have had them back out on me.
