Default RC8TE steering....

Hey guys, I have a RC8TE using a JR8711 servo with a dynamite servo arm. The stocker sucked and I went with this arm for more throw, but its still does not give me any better steering radius then about 42" either way and the EPA is set to max. Are you guys using a longer servo arm then the dynamite's??? My losi 8T 2.0 using the same servo and arm turns around 34" radius. I am trying to get it to turn that tight as its costing me valuable time on the track on tight turns since I have to take them wide.

u could make the steering link a little longer . or put your servo at 0 on your transmmiter and put the servo arm to the right a little bit , sometimes that works and sometimes it doesnt. and the other thing if u have a extra hole in your servo arm put it on the foward hole .

I set the trim to 0 already and its on the outward hole as well. Maybe a longer steering arm is possible, but to long and it may hit the radio box.
