Questions?? steering problems!

On my Associated b4 (race spec model) I can't get around corners on my local track without the steering being sharp and sudden. As soon as I steer it swerves sharply at waaayyy too quickly and causes me great difficulty. I would like my steering to be not so sudden and uncontrollable, I want to steer smoothly through corners. I tried my friend's buggy and it was perfect and I drove it for 10mins before the battery ran out without crashing. THe main reason for my crashes is this turning business..

Any advice? All comments appreciated greatly!

I don''t know what radio you have, but I would dial in some exponent on the steering channel. Some radios have a speed setting that you could use as well, but exponent would be the right way.

As said above, you will want to make your steering exponential less so this way the steering on the car feels less touchy.

Why don't you try the setup your friend is using, that's what I would do. Adjusting the expo on your radio isn't going to compensate for a bad setup.

i agree check the other b4 set ups at your track and look at the expo and pull some out also look at your end points and toe on the front wheels. if your end points are too much and you turn the wheel full cock(which it should really never be) its gonna be really aggresive. and too much toe out tends to make the rear kind of skatey. one more thing the b4 imo is a car that drives on a knifes edge but like they say loose is fast and tight is slow
