Default 5925 not centering

I have a 5925 that I have been running in 1/10 buggy. The last time I raced I noticed that the servo seemed to center incorrectly. I would trim it out on the radio and it would seem fine until the next heat. Then it would be off center the opposite direction. I would trim it out and be fine until the next heat. In the main I had the same problem but then it decided to recenter during the race. I compensated by holding the wheel over a tad to keep it going straight for the rest of the race.

My question is this: Is this a known problem? I don't want to send it in to be repaired and have it sent back marked no problem. I can try to keep running it but it kind of sucks to have to hold the wheel off center to go straight half way through a race.

Do you have the correct horn on the servo? It has to be a 24 tooth spline otherwise it will pop from one side to another and cause what your describing.

It is the Associated one that comes in the B3 kit for a Hitec. What is strange is that it will be fine until I turn the car off and back on again. Then it is off center.

Ko Mars R. I haven't had any problems with other servos with this radio.

I had one of the guys at the track tonight with the exact same issue..

Mars radio, servo not centering....(non-Hitec)

Not saying this will cure yours, but he tried another radio and all the issues went away....

We swapped servo, Rx's, ESC...
After all that we tried another radio....

No everything works fine with all original equipment except radio..

The servo is dated March 2002. I don't think its the radio since it centers fine with an Airtronics servo.

So should I send it in or wait for it to get worse before sending it in?

Do i have to send in for repair ? about how much it will cost me? i don't have the receipt can i still claim the warranty ?

Yes, just explain that in the letter when you send them in. TTYL.
