Is it coming around going into the corner off power? If so make sure you don't have a lot of drag break in the car if you're running a oneway.

Ps. Still having problems with the tail end of my car coming around on me. Its less now but still not driveable under power into corners. I've been neglecting the fact that i'm running one way in the car so if you have such a setup i would like to take a look at it. Thanks as always.
IslandBwoy- where are u running a one way at? tqs?

Yeah. And i love how it rips except for the fact that i have to back off so much to get around. Are you suggesting not to run the one way? Or should i make it a spool and see how that works?

I think a lot of this has to do with the surface at TQ. It seems to me that TQ setups work no where else and are harder to achieve than anything else.

The spool is prolly a better idea than the one way. However, dont forget i'm talking about my mission not my MI2 so its going to be a little different. In fact a lot different.

PW. if you come online, can you take a look at the setup sheet i posted? i'm sure you or adrian can make some suggestions. Some of the thing on there may look a little radical but it was all in an attempt to get the car to stick to the ground.

Default left side steering arm

Arjen

If you use the search feature using my handle you will find a past discussion about this problem.

If you follow the discussion there was even a few Team drivers that acknowledged the problem.

The issue is with the way the part has been molded. The weak point is the little gusset and the fact that the grooves are too deep. Its a very poor design in my opinion and I have broken more than I care to. This is my one and only issue with the Mi2 and I wish that someone from Schumacher would address the problem.

Anyway, I bullet proofed the part by getting some old carbon graphite and shaping it into the shape of the arm so that it would slip over the bottom of the arm and would act as a renforcement on the bottom. I drilled a hole such that the graphite would fit around the post tube and give me more to glue. Then I used JB Weld to create a thick web on top, over and around the gusset and thin CA to hold my brace to the bottom of the arm. Since then I no longer have problems breaking this part.

I hope in the future they redesign the part.

Although I keep searching, I have not been able to find a piece from a different kit that will work.

Your only other option is not to hit anything or not get hit

Sorry but I have to disagree that there is no other option. That was the first part I broke on my mission, then I realized that the servo saver was too tight. You need to loosen the servo saver so you have enough bend in the servo saver to survive a crash. But I do always try to keep extra servo saver parts on hand in case I break another one. I've broken 2 of them so far, the 1st one I already explained, the 2nd I tried tightening the servo saver a little bit more and broke it the first hard crash I had. I hope this helps some people.
