You can try resetting your servo horn to neutral.

To do that you first of all undo the screw on the part that connects the steering arms to the servo and pull that part off the servo.

Then you set your controller to neutral on the adjustment settings and then turn it on.

Thirdly you connect a battery to the car and turn the car on. At this stage your servo will be in the neutral position.

The fourth step is to turn the car off, then the transmitter in that order.

Then you put the steering arm holder back on the servo and screw it on, making sure that you do not let the servo move at all and that your steering arms are as straight as you can get them. Your steering should be straighter than it was and may only require a tiny adjustment to make perfect.

Is it a toe issue? If so just turn the turnbuckle until the wheels are where you want them.
