Default Questions about TC5R

I recently acquired a TC5R in great condition.

I put a 4420 KV motor in it with a 2S Lipo and the car is extremely fast. ( to me )

Right now I am using a JR Z590 MG servo. The specs are .15 and 89 oZ @ 6.0V.

The steering is extremely quick, and very touchy. It feels quicker than my 12th scale car.

How to I slow it down a little bit, so I can get use to it? I am also using a DX3E so changing anything on the controller might be out of the question.

I think the car has a one-way in the front, or it is locked, either way, it's really tight up front. The back is normal.

This is my first TC car, I have a 12th scale and 1/10th buggy, and it drives like neither of those cars.....

Also, how do you make sure the chassis is not tweaked. On the 12th scale, I would place a screw driver in the center of the chassis, lift slowly and adjust the T-Bar screws until both front wheels raised at the same time.

Is it basically the same idea?

Thanks for any and all input.
