Default Kyosho TKI4 Steering Inquiry

Whichever way I last turn is the way the buggy will pull.

Initially thought it was a servo problem, so I replaced- not it.

Suggestions?

Look for binding in the steering and even your radio. I had the grip foam on my steering wheel on my radio get loose and was rubbing preventing it from returning to center.

Thanks for the insight Ed, I never would have thought of that. That's not it though, I'm thinking it's my receiver... I've gone through everything else, if it's not my receiver, I'm flattening my track tomorrow!

Make sure your servo saver spring is tight.

I'll check that. Trying to get everything dialed in for another winter series race coming up... Excuse my naiveness but I just retired from the moto game and I'm trying to figure this whole r/c buggy thing out. Thanks!

Make sure your servo horn isn't stripped or stripping. Happened on my D413.

Checked my servo horn, all was good, thanks though. Ended up throwing a capacitor on my receiver, problem solved!
