Default tc3 problem

hello all im having a problem with my tc3. everytime i spin the wheels without the pinion on the motor and i turn the wheels left or right it seems to bind/stop and slows down really hard and quick. like a jerky stop motion, and i just cleaned the bearings today and its alot freer but still the problem exist. could it be bad bearings or need a diff rebuild or? this does not happen when the wheels are pointed forward! plz any info well appreciated ty

I have a question for an tc3 guy to please pm me or post answers to help me out. I just started driving my tc3 and the car is always pulling to the right or the left on full throttle. I have tried to get it close with my radio, but i just cant seem to get it going pretty straight.

ALL TIPS AND ANSWERS ARE WELCOMED

PLEASE HELP

are you unsure of if it pulls to the right or left as in dont remember which side? or does it pull in one way sumtimes and the other way other times? if it was consistently pulling in one direction it would be either one side has more friction ie bad bearings or binding, or a bad setup. bad weight balance. spring preload etc. if it drifts in random directions can be a bad setup or a bad diff.

it pulls differently depending on how i try and correct it with my radio. I just cant seem to get it to run straight . And at the track today i had a guy helping me and we kinda got it somewhat, but it still goes in one direction when i give it full throttle

Default .....i'm hope this is of some help to ya'....

....are ya' using the stock plastic/graphite tc-3 chassis or carbon fiber plate (ie. I.R.S.,warpspeed,Balistic)type of chassis; The reason I asked is cos' the C.F. types may cause alittle interference problems (kinda like what you're experiencing)....see if the servo wires aren't crossed up near the receiver antenna/ motorwires....inspect the wires themselves, too-another reason (to your probs)torque-steer....rubber tires on hard wood / slick surface flooring can amplify torque-steer....

Its just not driving anywhere near straight is basically what it comes down to

Default .....oops, let me see if I can clarify....

.....I was assuming that the steering being pulled left/right was related to the wiring set up-a C.F. chassis may tend to act like a big antenna, & thus possibly picking up [unwanted] inputs/frequencies-basically, like interference....A fellow driver experienced gliching w/ an M8 controlling a TC-3 (w/ the I.R.S. chassis): A nearby low power line induced a terrible glich sending it into the barriers.... a great car/chassis but may be keeping wires (including ant.) insulated from the C.F. chassismay improve on the steering problem.....

torque steer-the car was born with it and most likely will never let it go
