Default steering trim on rustler vxl

ok this is starting to piss me off because i can't get the steering trim right whenever i try to adjust it the car still turns somewhat when i try to go straight and its get hard to control when im going full speed....ive been trying to set the tire's straight with the steering trim for the last 6 days but can't get it......can it be something else?

glad to know someone is in the same boat as I am. i would double check the wheel cambers, make sure you have front wheels on the front and rear wheels on the rear (if you have different offsets) and I would also adjust the steering turnbuckle first, before adjusting radio trim.

Check if the servo is tight. if it can move around in its mount you will always have this problem.

also check if the wheels turn free, binding can cause the car to pull towards one side.

The trim will only go so far. If you go to far with the trim your servo throw will not be the same for both turning right and left. I would adjust the servo horn to get in the ball park and then do trim. It is common to have about +/- 4 trim either side, this usually is the case for "uneven toe" angles
