Be sure you have the rustler arm from the bellcrank to the servo saver. (shorter I think) mine is 46.1mm to center of each eye
I also have proline kit on mine and dremmeled the front of the arms on the bottom side for max turning with the "0" offset protrac wheels. The wheels hit the arms before full turn.
bellcrank is the same soooo something else changed if you had good steering before?

keep in mind a longer wheelbase (what, 1.5 to 2 inches?) will make a HUGE difference over the stock Rustler setup! Larger turning radius for sure!
