before you pull anything apart check your epa's on the steering and make sure they travel the same amount in each direction, if you have the same amount of lock in each direction then start the process of elimination

servo saver binding under load

servo saver loosened off

wear on steering components etc

hope this helps

Default Why so cheap?

I'm going to be purchasing an 8ight T soon and I noticed that some online stores are selling the Losi rollers way way cheap while the 8ight kit is still its usual price. Is it a supply and demand thing or is there something wrong with the rollers? I don't need the truggy till spring so I can wait but at these prices I'm tempted get one now. As long as nothing is wrong with them.

For the T the roller is the way to go. The only other option is the RTR which will need upgrades be be as beefy as the roller. But the RTR is still a good truggy to start with. It's fast too, from what I hear.

I have no doubt that the 8ight T roller over the RTR is the way to go. I bought the 8ight buggy when it first came out a have been very pleased with it. It just seems kind of odd that all of a sudden the rollers are almost $100 cheaper than a few months ago.
