Thanks for the info.

I will check the servo to see if it is touching. I'll also check for something binding the steering.

What do you mean by subtrim?

I just took a look at my chassis. No rocks were binding the steering. I took the steering rod off and I get full travel both ways with it off. Both of my EPA's are currently set to 125. I noticed another problem with my EPA'S being maxed out. While on my table giving the car throttle, I turned left and noticed the left wheel started to shake. It looked like it was hitting something, but it actually wasn't. What can that be caused from? Possibly too much travel for the servo, causing the drive shafts to chatter?

Anyway, back to my original problem. How can I get equal and max steering on both sides? Will making the steering rod longer/shorter make a difference?

It sounds like your servo travel to the left is maxed out, while the right is not quite @ the end point (even @ 125 EPA). I would re-orient the servo saver by giving it a bit more travel to go to the right. My 1258TG shakes a bit when the limit of the steering mechanism is reached while the servo still has some travel to go.

If you reduce the EPA to the left - does it eliminate the shaking ?

Ok, so instead of putting the servo horn on at 12 o'clock, put it a degree to either way?

The shaking did stop when I turned down my EPA on the left.

I would try putting it a degree towards the right a bit, then center it via the radio setting.

That's what I mean by subtrim.

On your transmitter, you can adjust the trim (not subtrim) with one of the physical buttons usually, by the steering wheel or such. That will adjust the servo, but it'll also take up some of your turning ability since it'll eat into the range. Now, subtrim, on the other hand, has no effect on your steering range, it just adjusts the servos position to the transmitter's "neutral" (or 0) position. So... you want to adjust the subtrim to get the servo horn centered at home or in the pits, and use trim on the fly (while racing) if needed be (post crash, etc.) to get your steering centered again.

Hope that makes sense, it's late and my brain hurts

I got a question guys. I need a new front axle. Manual calls it #19808192. I can not find them anywhere. I can find the rear axle #51513. This is super frustrating. It's like the part doesn't exist. I can not even find the CVD's the Pro kit comes with. Is the part number something else. Is it used in another kit? They must make the front axle if the sell the rear. This is crazy. I found it at this one place and they call it 58409, but that turns up nothing when tried else where.I\m not allow to attach a link
Someone please tell me were to get some replacement front axles. Thanks

The standard front axle (non cvd) is the same one Tamiya has used for years. TA03, TA04, TA05, TB01/2/3. Any of those will work

The rear is actually longer on the rally kit.

Great. Thanks for all your help. I knew another model would have the parts. I understand some models use the same parts, but at least label them all the same. I don't know why they gave the XV-01 a part# which can't be found. Anyway, thanks again for all your advice.
