Default XXX-T Troubleshooting

I have an XXX-T, as you may have intelligentaly guessed. Congrats ! Anyways, I have a few problems and I figured someone out there should know something:

1.) Steers to the right a little even when going straight.

2.) Gives a "Eeeeee, Eeeee" electronic noise sound when idling.

To clean my machine, I just use a paintbrush and brush the dirt off because I run it around my street and in a gravel parking lot. I am thinking about getting some compressed air worked up or get a steamer.

just use an air compresser not a steamer you may damage your electronics.

if your truck go's right try adjusting your trim on your radio (or sub trim depending on your radio)
or check your toe in or out

the eeeee sound is probly your speed control. my novak cyclone used to do that and i reprogramed my speedo and it stoped. or check your thorttle trim on your radio

RC Trix XXX-T parts (refer to this link while reading)

I have a bigger problem now. I broke one of my front A-arms last night. I want to get better ones, for looks, but mostly so I don't have this problem again. I was told titanium is the best you can get, but I found an ad for RC Trix that they had aluminum a-arms and shock towers. What is the difference between aluminum and titanium? The a-arms and shock towers are mode of 6061 aluminum. Is this good, average, or excellent durability and lightness? Also, the A-arms and shock towers available by RC Trix come in two colors: Brite Dipped and Blue. Is Brite Dipped (clear) just normal aluminum, and blue is a painted blue a-arm? Finally, if I do get these a-arms, should I also get the shock towers from the same company?

Don't get aluminum suspension parts. They will bend instead of break. Once they are bent, they will be tweaked and cause your suspension to be bound up and if you are unaware of this your truck will drive like a turd. Spend the extra money that you were going to use for aluminum components on practice time.
