Maybe I'll just get the shock upgrade kit that is $40.00 dollars and not $100.00.

Hey guys, I have a TC4 and I installed a Savox 1251 Servo and there is a problem with it. The wheels aren't centering right and the car won't turn right as much as left. I took out the servo and checked the centering and it looked it was fine and when I turned right and left it was the same amount of steering. I think there is binding on the steering. What should I check or what to replace? I might go to the hobby shop on Thursday.

Thanks In Advance

It sounds like a radio problem. What radio do you have. With EPA and sub trim adjustments it should be simple to achieve equal steering right and left.

@mac8 I agree with rick it sounds like you have a radio adjustment out of wack. And as far as upgrades for your car yes to sway bars and one ball diff for the front. Take the shocks off the car and rebuild them right away. I threw out the stock Orings and used Factory1 Orings. (Hes a personal friend of mine but his shock parts are second to none) Rebuild them per the instructions and use plenty of green slime on the rings and seals. Other than that run your car as is and upgrade as needed(a spring set would be my next upgrade)

On the FT TC4 what's the largest spur for the top deck my motor was running 200 without a fan after 6min it's mod 19/72. Thinking 18/75 and a good fan can drop the temp in a reasonable range.

I got the VCS2 Shock Rebuild Kit for my car to make it better and if I have enough budget I will get the sway bars. Turns out the screw that goes in the steering rack is loose making it weird. Thanks For The Help!

19/72 is 9.47fdr , which is very low for mod....... Going lower will generate more heat.... You might need to take Off your bearing shields to make sure your drivetrain is also free at high rpm... I doubt you run a 2.5t or 3.5t , which I run between 8.409fdr(3.5t) and 8.8fdr(2.5t)..... It is also possible to get better Performance and less heat by turning down the boost and gearing up... Anything above 9.0fdr is too low......

To further explain...too low gearing means that you may be over-revving the motor, which can generate heat.

Also gearing too low can create wheel spin when coming out of a corner, which in itself can contribute to over-heating a motor.

----------

You didn't mention if you were running brushless or brushed motors, but brushless motors have more torque and normally use lower number FDR's to achieve best results (when compared to brushed motors)

HMM so the higher the number the lower the FDR? So I should go for a larger pinion? It's a brushed mod motor.

@boudin the parma bumper has been discontinued so ebay or the forsale section maybe your only option for it. 3racing also discontinued theirs however Asiatees show them in stock still
