I am running a Tekin RS in my XXXCR with a 9100s servo and had some steering problems. After pulling my hair out I fixed it by adding a capacitor to the receiver and it solved my problems. Tekin's esc's don't seem to have enough power for high power digital servo's. Hope this helps.

Take the servo horn off you servo so that it takes anything mechanical out of the equation. If it does it without the servo connected to the linkage then it's something electronic. If it doesn't then it's something mechanical.
