Most people I know that ran smart diffs dont run them anymore. Your steering problem is quite simple. Tighten your servo saver nut. Its probably loosend up and rubbing on the chassis pan. I had the same problem when I first started also. Use some locktite on the threads and that should keep it from loosening up again.....

Oasis- I'm thinking the smart diff might be the ticket for me after reading your last response. I come into turns easy and like to "hammer" my way out. I don't come into turns hard at all. Thats exactly what ya described. You run just one smart diff? Center or rear?

You run smart diff front and/or center never rear, I prefer to run it center only. Worked good on my track, when it was blown out and loose. Now it's smooth and grippy so I'm back to 7/5/3 in the buggy.

Yeah the outdoor track I run on is pretty loose and rough. I might try the smart center diff? My buddy has one at a pretty good price. I'm going to tear it down this week and apply all the good tips i got so far. Great site guys, thanks for all the help and advice!

I always run mine in the front, I don't know why you guys want to run them in the center and rear..I look at a smart diff like a one way and use it as "one"..in the center it would unload both front and rear and didn't seem to work as well as using it in the front. Plus if your track is really tight if it's in the front it will help rotate your truggy on the brakes..it works like a one way..why are you guys running it in the center? not trying to be a smart a** just wondering..plus I race at where the factory guys race at so I know where they are using them....and a hint..it's not in the center or rear..

You can check your servo saver pretty easy. Just turn the wheels and hold them turned and try to turn them back by hand. If you can really easy. It's too loose and you can see where that would be a problem when trying to hold a line.

Mitchell this is a completely useless thread. Put my setup on it. I know you have a copy. It'll turn. Your truggy doesn't turn because your setup is terrible. If you want, bring it up to the track sometime and I'll put my setup on it for you. Happy?

It will turn, if u bought it used double check your set up to the std set up. The best thing i've done is I taped the set-up to wall were i work on my car everything is right in front of u for a quick reference. make sure the droop screws are in your a-arms, the guy before could have changed a-arms and forgot to put the droops screws back in, I've seen it down. and like everyone else said, ck the droop setting, ride height, rear sway bar 2.3, servo saver.

I had this problem, even when the servo saver was set right. I ended up buying a new servo saver assembly and that fixed it.
