Your servo saver or servo arm has probably come loose. The bolt on the bellcrank part of the saver is known to do that on these trucks.

They are part number LOSA6198 in case you still needed that.

Also make sure the servo saver shaft is clean. I had some dirt build up on mine and it was making the steering inconsistent.

My push problems are directly related to my throttle finger. The more drive time I get the less push I have.

I've ran 5-5-3/ 7-5-3/5-7-3 in the diffs all trying to correct the issue, my favorite was 5-7-3 as I like a really locked in feel with the truck but they recently turned our 1/8th scale size track to more 1/10th friendly for the upcoming roar regionals and now that the track isn't quite as flowing and a little more technical it is far more notiecable, I'm actually considering trying 3-5-2. I'm running a lightened truck around 6.2lbs ready to go, middle on towers, middle on front arm out on the rear, right height 27-28 front and rear. For shocks I run a big bore conversion just shy of full droop but they feel fantastic so I don't think it's a shock problem. I tried 2.5 rear toe instead of 3 as it broke traction to abruptly but I've yet to solve the problem. Even went so far to take the timing out of my motor thinking that it was partially to blame when it kicked in. Track is now 1/10th kinda with medium traction, I normally don't like to change diff oils alot but I'm searching here, truck has great steering on and off power I just have to get this rear traction thing figured out and I'm golden.
i run 1k in my rear diff. im accually 3/5/1. my car handles great, and i have plenty of offpower and onpower.

I think that's shady .. makes me want to take out the Viper 10.5 and 13.5 motors in my cart at Amain hobbies. The only reason I started looking at them is because of SaladFord and the ability to have some insight about what I thought was a great direction for Viper . . . but if the TEN-SCTE thread is used to manipulate then I won't support them.

This is, after all, the official TEN-SCTE thread and not a Viper sales thread.

x2. It's pretty weak if you ask me. I'll be putting Viper on the "do not buy" list.

Are you guys serious? You are going to boycott a new esc and motor package because the Tekin was accidentally left of of the list? Don't you think that you all might be jumping to conclusions and that it may have been an accident. Like some how that one spot where the name tekin is not typed in is industrial espionage or something?

Guys - Lets give Saladfork a chance to respond before we start bashing him and Viper R/C.

I'm sure he has a perfectly reasonable response to your questions.
