Could you explain that so a newbie can understand? I havent even tried to figure out all the stuff on the radio. I have a Jaguar 8217. Could I find a manual for it online, like I did for tyhe truck itself? I only know about the throttle and steering trim because they have that stuff on X-MODS.
The turnbuckles are the rods that the ballcups are on, and connect the different steering parts. The ones going from the steering rack to the blocks on the outside that turn the wheels should have about the same amount of threads showing on each side. Meaning if the left outside one has an 1/8 inch of thread showing, the right side one should have similar. I don't think the jaguar has epa's on it. You may find a manual at associated's website for it.
Most likely it's just steering is out of alignment. Do you have to adjust the steering trim way to one side to make it drive straight? If so that will make the turning more limited in one direction. I'd start by taking off the servo horn, center the trim on the radio, and remount the servo horn with everything turned on. Then adjust your turnbuckles so the wheels point straight ahead. I think the new issue of extreme r/c has an article of setting your linkages properly this month. Might want to check that out.
