With a slow servo since your reaction time is much faster you tell the car to stop turning but for a short time it is still turning due to the speed of the servo. which could put you in the wrong spot.
Just trying to save you some hassle
Or could it have been because he was a new driver with a freshly built and untested/ not set up car?
Or it could be that he was using the included servo saver in the Zero S kit, which is well known to be rubbish and known to cause tracking problems with the car.
Also which type of radio was he using? Was it something like a Flysky which are known to also have "lag" ?
Stating that .04 of a second difference in servo speed is causing a new driver, with a new car steering issues is a little hard to believe.
Maybe the reverse is being applied, maybe the steering is too fast for the new driver?
Using a steering arm instead of a servo saver on a strong metal gear servo isn't too much of a bad thing.
Usually, but not always the plastic spline in the steering arm will strip before the gears in the servo break.
