Make sure your droop settings are equal. This can have a huge effect on weight transfer under loading.

You can move battery holders outwards or inwards to try and get more balance

I have no official quote and don't speak on their behalf however I drive in the UK for hobbico and still are being asked to provide feedback on the v2. We were still getting prototype plastics last year for the v2 whilst running the v1. The Touring car is not discontinued and is still available. They had a new approach of sponsoring local good performing drivers encouraging people to buy kits and cost cut by reducing the size of the factory drivers.

See how the servo arm on my steering servo leans into the middle of the chassis.
Sorry to resurrect such an old question. I just finished building my V1 and have a similar issue. To get the same steering throw I have to set the EPA to

L-95
R-125

I am using the servo saver and I really tried to get a 90 degree angle between it an the tie-rod. It is leaning a little bit to the inside but if I lean it in any further the steering is not centered and the tie rod is already shortend as much as possible.
I am a little bit at a loss here. Since it should work just fine according to everything I read here.

Cut the tie-rod shorter if you have to. This is a hobby, modification of parts is part of the fun.

Are your steering links the correct length as reccomended in the manual?

I completely reset them both and will start from scratch setting it up. It is snowing here so not a lot of testing I can do right now. What I noticed so far is that I need a fair amount of subtrim (around 30ish) to really make the steering linkage point straight ahead. Of course changing the subtrim also changes my endpoints but I haven't gone so far to check how much I need to compensate here.
