It could be tweak, try the old trick of lifting the chassis in the middle, under the diff, with knifeedge and see if the wheels on both sides lift at the same time.
One time I got this problem I traced it to faulty receiver.
Try plugging 2 servos into the receiver and see if the "steering" servo moves when you give full throttle and the "throttle" servo moves when you steer. It helps to have the servo horns on the servos. You'll be amazed how much "bleeding" can be between channels in older radio systems, even the expensive ones.
The TC4. In My Opinion.
The chassis is better than in TC3.
All the suspension components are same or worse.
Drivetrain is basically the same.
I'm amazed by how little has really changed.
I have lot of slop for a new car, some of it minimized by careful applications of CA but still too much.
The manual could be clarified and there are outright errors.
My car has the thick diff gears, still waiting for the replacements.
One of the balls (for the ballcups) had smooth hole on top, not hex.
Since Associated is supposed to be "overengineering" company I'm not happy with their quality control or should I say component quality checks.
Someone should tell the Associated engineers that the shape, or form of a part, is even more important for strength, than thickness and material used.
Some basic engineering. Even sided triangle is the strongest shape there is, I'm talking about supsension arms. Look at the difference (in suspension arms design) between Associated, Losi, Pro4 and Xray. Associated gets F in my book.
