I've had this problem too with my special. if you haven't tried this already, try some toe-in in the front. I know just a little cured it for me.

When I had my schumacher 4wd cat3000 I had that steering problem. I bet wyd is right, besides, my xx4 and xxx sure have some considerable slop in the steering but it never wanders.

Remember you always need some slop because without any slop the car will not track straight either. You will always need a little slop for the car to work properly. More than likely it is a servo problem or the servo moves around in the car some.

Replace all of your ballcups in the steering. Yokomo ballcups are soft plastic and they strtch and wear pretty quick. Also you can put shock o-rings on a few of the ballcups like the servo arm link and the ballcups on the servo saver etc. That should get the slop out.

I've had success using GS Racing ballcups on both of my Yokomos. They seem to last a lot longer than the stock cups and eliminate a bit of the slop.

Good idea Shane, but as any of you that have owned Schumachers in the past know, Schumacher has the best ballcups BY FAR that I've found anywhere. Those bad boys will bust your dang thumb trying to get them on the first time!!

Yokomo may already have a new car, but we probably won't see it for a while. I think masami was running a Sp at the Japanese Nats.

Guys. I have a question about the stock shocks that come from MR4TCPro. Why the shocks have a screw hold on the top cap? I don't seem to find a screw hold on any other type shock. What is the hold on the cap for? Is the hold will make the shock better or what? Thanks.

Hey -- what is the difference between the ZS-200L (anodized blue aluminum) servo saver mount posts and the ZS-200T ??

The ZS-200L is about $6 and the ZS-200T is about $12 ??

Thanks.

That screw is basically a bleeder screw. After you put the cap you push in the shaft and any air should go out the hole then you put the screw in.

If I remember the ZS-200T is the complete parts needed for the servo saver and the ZS-200L is just the aluminum post anodized in blue for the servo saver.

OK thanks.

I was hoping the ZS-200T were titanium posts

I know, but shocks like Tamiya feel like better. When you push the shaft in, it will just push back by itself even the spin isn't there. But Yokomo's shocks won't come back out if you don't put a spin in it. So should the shafts come out even no spin is better or what?
