Default Steering Help!!!!!!

My truggy is making turns that are way tooo wide and the steering response is slow. I have a hitec servo in there but im guessing its too old.
Any recommened servos for a racing truggy?
Also, having a hump pack receiver battery any different from the stock AA battery case? When it comes to steering. What im tryin to say is if you have a hump pack does it help get power to the steering rather than the AA case?

get rid of the AA, it wont allow the servos to use all there potential.

if the servo is bad or old i recommend the jr 9100. have had this since day one and Zero issues

Check you built in servo saver. It is the large nut with a huge spring on the steering post where your steering servo linkage attaches. Sometimes it backs out and causes your steering to get real solw and sloppy.

Also, a 6V pack is MUCH better than AA's. You get much faster response and more torque if you get rid of the AA's.
