Default steering problem (nitro) need help


I have a Kyosho mad force nitro truck. The steering is not working properly! what it happens is -when I press left, on controller it makes little jerks left and falls back to straight again (do does not go even need near to fully left) -- it is like if something is stopping it turning-- but there is nothing (I took off the connectors of the servo and it acts the same way)

any idea - is it the receiver that is wrong - has any body seen anything like this before??

Thanks in advance.

it is possible that you have broken teeth in your servo....like the gears are broken or missing a few teeth, so it's not able to turn completely. I'd check that first. If that is the case, then you just need to buy new gears for that servo or a new servo.
