Where do you put the Grommets in a servo?

Install the grommets into the eyelets in the servo and, if your screws fit, install the brass tubes too. This will provide a little extra give in an impact and help isolate the servo from chassis vibrations. Before you install your servo into the radio tray, you should check the clearance between the sides of the servo and the radio tray itself.
