Default How to setup my M-03R to run straight?

Sorry for the newbie question, I just bought a 2ndhand mini M03R. Have tried playing around with the tow-in turnbuckles and transmittor Steering trim, suspension height, but just couldnt get the car to run straight. Need advise on how to setup my mini. Thanks!

had lots of trouble with mine not tracking straight down the straight, turned out to be too much toe-in. Added toe-out and the thing tracked like a dream...

It's how you set the toe in the front, mainly. When your front shocks are fully extended (do you use 4-6mm of spacers inside them?) is when the tires should be straight ahead (0 toe).

Ive heard the tamiya servo saver can also be a problem, as it can have excessive movement in it, or bind up, causing it to not track straight.

Could be something as simple as that I've had no issues with the Kimbrough ones if you need a replacement.
