Default Turmoil Pro - Steering issue

Hello Everyone,
I am brand new to the sport and just got my Turmoil Pro on dirt yesterday for the first time. I have one quick question; why would the buggy turn very well to the right and terrible to the left. I am not using the greatest steering servo I know, 645MG (plan to buy a 5955 soon!), but I am still confused why one steering direction would be SO much better than the other. Is this something to do with the set-up of the car or something do to with electronic set-up (maybe radio related - something to do with set up on it)? Just a little confused, hopefully someone on here can help me out. Thanks a bunch!

Blake

You might need to adjust the end points giving more throw to the left or something may be binding up in the steering system... A couple of ideas for ya!

all buggys somehow steer shorter to one side
by design of the servosaver links..

sometimes you got to put a shimm under
one side of the steeringjoints or at the base
under 1 of the servosaveraxle..
these must be 100% horizontal to avoid
any friction..

just try with the servolink disconnected and see if all
turn freely...

you can also dremel a little below/front of the front uprights
to get more trow
