Default Steering problem

I just got this car and ran it once and right from the beginning noticed the steering sticks but moves freely. I tried 3 different servos as well as shaving the dowels down on the Ackerman still the same result. When I set the car on the found and turn to right the tires do not return straight any help would be greatly appreciated

I have not modified, shaved, or altered any steering components at all. Everything functions ands drives great.

Possibilities :

1 - something is bound up. If you disconnect the ball cup link, will the steering system move freely by hand ? There should be zero resistance.

2 - the servos you are choosing might be too weak.

3 - maybe an issue with your transmitter ? Just guessing on this one...

The servo saver can keep the steering from centering. Try using an aluminum horn.

In previous pages people took the dowels out of the Ackerman in order to reduce play which it had a lot of which helped tremendously. The aluminum horn did the trick now I'm just having problems when I take off quick the car veers right. I think I just need to get my setup right

Had a local sticker guy come up with one from one I cut out. If you're interested he can be contacted at [email protected].
