I'll be able to report on this in about a week. Hoping to have a good solid setup dialed in starting Monday.

Also, is anyone having issues with the one wheel getting full lock and the other not? My left wheel turns left more than the right wheel turns right. I've tired messing with the whole front end and still can't get either side to even out.

Have a look and make sure that you have the same inserts trailing etc on both sides

You don't mean when you turn left the LHS turns more than the RHS?

Or do you mean that when you turn L the LHS truns less than the RHS

When you turn L It should seem like the RHS turns more and turn R the LSH should seem to turn more

confused much I am a little now

Cheers!

You have that reversed. The inside wheel should have a sharper turn than the outside wheel.

That's correct.

However, in my case:

Turning left = inside wheel has XX degrees angle
Turning right = inside wheel has XX degrees less angle than left

Maybe I should take a picture?

Did you resent all of your radio settings for steering to zero before attaching the servo horn?

Yea. I'm not sure what else to do. The car just turns left more than it does right.

One of your turnbuckles is probably longer than the other. Best way to set up steering is zero out your radio trim, place the servo arm on the servo as close to center as possible, then install equal length turnbuckles, adjust steering trim on your radio so wheels are equally "balanced" (whether they're way toe out or in as long as they're the same), now adjust your turnbuckles to where you want your toe. This allows each turnbuckle to be the same length, which is what you want. Now, if you have the capability, adjust your individual end points so the servo doesn't over extend.

Take a picture of the steering rack with servo and another for each spindle (left and right) maybe something is screwy.

- Check that the sub trim is close to zero (move servo arm if needed)
- set the controll links and servo arm at correct lengths and angles.
- set the endpoints on your radio.

Finished
