Are you using the stock set up or have you made changes? Which tires and what kind of surface at your track?

a good servo is a must in the losi truggy, makes a huge difernce in turning ability, make sure camber and toe-out is set correctly, make sure you have droop settings correct, right oil in shocks, many factors to look at for better steering, but once you get it right it will awsome!

Have you checked to make sure your servo saver is setup right? I find that alot of people over look this and it is a major problem . If it is set to loose the truggy/buggy will not steer worth beans.

After that is set right you can move on to setup, tire choice, droop, ride height, shock oil etc.

I have a 9100 JR servo and the adj hinge pin set up? I'll have to see whats its set at? I'm looking for a good all around semi beginner set-up? I've driven 2 other losi truggies and theirs steered way better than mine? It just takes turns Sooooo wide unless you can get it to spin and power around a turn? Is the stock set-up decent?

Glad to see this really is a legitimate thread. The title made me think it was a response to the AE sux thread that got deleted.
