Im not trying to be an asshole but the curiosity is killing me. You seem to know a lot about rc cars and are using some pretty big words, but your spelling is horrible so its tough to guess... my guess is 14 or 15?

like I said before, look closely at it and move it slowly with your hands, you should be able to tell where the problem is coming from... or the general area at least.

Why do you want to know, are you a petafile or something?

No there is no fix it kit. And all R/C cars have this problem, its called lack of maintenance, replace all the bushings and bearings in it, set your EPA on the radio correctly, and maintain it and you wont have a problem.

im not trying to sound like a ass or anything but i know the exact problem but there is no way to fix/tighten it because the way the have it set up is if you go to tighten it (witch dose remove the slop) the steering system will bind up and not steer at all so i havent really a choice to leave it snug but there is a lot of slop in just the left wheel the right on has a normal amount about the same as a jammin x1crt so i dont know what the hell to do besides is to make one

Do you mean the steering servo saver?...turnbuckles are just,pretty much long screws.(studs).

From what i can put together ..when you tighten the the ackerman arm screws that are mounted to the servo saver arms...then it binds?

the servo saver is fine its where the left ackerman connects to the thing the turnbuckle connects cant remember whats its called but when you tighten it it dosent want to move so you have to run it sloppy as shit

A pic of the area you are referring to might help. Do you mean the bolts in the ackerman, or do you mean the other steering post is sloppy, or what?

I don't know that particular truck... but maybe the bushings or bearings in the steering post. (The part that duplicates the movement of the servo saver, but on the other side.) There should be either bushings or bearings in there... they are probably worn... and if they are bushings, see if you can replace them with the same size bearings.

Try replacing the bearings and bushings first. Usually the first thing to screw up in your steering rack.

Sorry all

Nothing to do with the post itself. But, did that guy say "petafile"? I'm sure he/she meant to say "Pedophile", but the way this thread is going ...

Seriously guys, here's a great website :

Check it out.

This may end up being my first and last post on this site.
