Default Right turn, full throttle, servo goes to neutral

Just broke in my lx2, everything is still stock. The problem I'm having is under right turn and 80% plus throttle my steering servo goes to the neutral position. It doesn't do it with the car off the ground, could this be a problem with the differential? If not what could it be?

Make sure your AA batteries are fresh. Good idea to replace the AA batteries with a rechargable NiMH battery. Similar to below. Brand isn't important.

They are brand new batts, but I will for sure replace with your suggestion. Thank you!

Any other possible reasons? Strangely enough, it's only on right turns.

I will for sure follow your suggestion, thank you.

Any other possible reasons? It's only on right turns and hard throttle, strange.

+1. you need to get a NiMh RX pack. More voltage for the servos, more time and cheaper over the long run than putting AA's in.

I actually found the problem to be crap servos. Its the vibration causing the action. If I tap on the steering servo I get sparatic movements.

Does anyone have a recommendation to a "best bang for your buck" servo? I'm not racing, just having fun. Although, I'm sure I'll be racing again soon. It's been 8 years since I last messed around with RC cars.

I've been reading a lot about savox. Do I need a digital servo? My radio is a 2.4ghz. Any particular model?

Doesn't need high voltage servos unless running lipo rx battery
