Angry Help with steering issue, please.

This is the limit for left turns on my Hyper 7. In the second picture, you can see where the servo saver hite the hinge pin carrier. Any ideas on what to do to correct this?




My right turns are awesome, my left turns suck.

You can shorten the steering link then you have to reset your trim.

It looks to me like the servo saver arm is on backwards. Shouldn't it point towards the out side? If it did that would solve the problem..

was the steering range originally larger and did it shorten up a bit after some bashing? I'm wondering if this could have been caused by damage. Not trying to offend you at all, but I'm pretty sure everyone is rc toasts servos at one time or another. If you reversed the servo saver like said before and took the steering assembly apart to scan for damage, I think you might be able to find an issue...

In my experience, a servo favoring one direction is typically damaged somehow.

It's not the servo favoring one side. I'm using an MX-3 radio and have made the proper end point adjustments.

center the servo savers range of motion to the servo using your radios trim adjustment. Then adjust the tie rods so the wheels point straight forward.

Flip the servo saver around to the other side. (Outside - Like mentioned in the first answer) It will allow it to travel to the limit of the ball joints.
Once you get the physical limits down, you need to run a servo arm that will allow you to have travel just short of those limits. This will keep you from over extending and damaging your front suspension.
If you wanted to leave it on the inside you could always remove material from you hinge pin holder.
Hope this helps.

hi, yep thats what it does. all i can suggest if you need more travel is to get the Carbon Fibre upper plate. then take a dremel and cut a small bit out. that what i did for mine.

also the c-hub hyper works much better. you can covert it for not that much at all. prob $50 for all the parts.

cheers

ackerman is attached to wrong arm on the servo saver. The arm on the servo saver that has one hole goes to the ackerman, the other part with 3 holes will be on the outside...

I just looked at a Hyper PBS and all the bits are in the correct spot but the hinge pin carrier is not the standard one that comes with the kit. The original one has a indentation where the servo saver now hits.

Maybe the hinge pin block is around the wrong way?? or it is the wrong block..
