Default Reversing Steering

I just got my 8ight RTR (used) today and I am putting in my raido gear. I put everything in, and turned the transmitter on (JR XR2i), but instead of the steerign moving right when I turn right, it turns left. Same goes for the other side. The servo MOVES right when i turn it, but I was wondering how I can reverse this.

funny when fellow racers ask to drive my car, i tell them the steering is backwards and they won't be able to drive it. "every one" of them have said,"no problem, i can do it". so i give them my radio, they drive about 10 feet and then hand the radio back wile shaking their heads. i just smile and say, "i told ya".

Off-topic:

There was a rubber band that stretched from the hsn area of the carb to the slide carb area around the lsn. I feel like the rubber band is stretching alot. Should I have this on or not? What are the pros/cons of it?

yup,It snaps your carb back fast so when you full throttle it wont stick open... which is BAD lol

i dont run throttle return bands...imo they bung up the carb throw too much and can cause other issues....the only benefit to them is if the linkage Falls apart or the ball pops off which rarely ever happens.

Everyone's different I swear by those little rubber bands. At a $1.99 for a pack of 100. The saved me from 2 runaways. Best $1.99 I've spent in this hobby.
