I own a sportwerks turmoil, and I was at our local track yesturday. At first, It was running good, had a few oversteer problems at first, but i fixed that. Later on, it suddently stopped steering at all. So I brought it in to check. I changed the rx pack thinking it was the batts but it was the same. I thought that my servo was stripped, so I checked that, but it wasnt.
My servo is weak ill admit it, only 90 oz of torque, but it was fine before. Either way, i ordered a new servo. This one:
This one should be more enough now right?
I wanted to check it further today. So I took apart the front suspension and drivetrain. I isolated the tightness to two screws on the steering ankerman rack. Pic:
(two silver screws that connect the blue ankerman to the servo savers)
I found if i unscrewd the screws a bit it steered MUCH more easily. But if I leave them unscrewd they will come off right? I cleaned the buggy and tighted the screws, it seems to be like it was before the incident yesturday. So what should I do? Leave it tight and let the new servo take care or of it? Or should I loosen and if so, how do I make sure the screws dont fall out?
