Default TC4 Steering

is there any way to get rid of the slop in the FT TC4 steering. i hope that is how you describe it. you can turn the tires a little bit by moving them by hand but the servo never moves! is there any aftermarket kit i could buy or is there something i could do to get rid of this?

i heard using rubber bands or hair bands from ball stud to ball stud

and that should take away the un-needed slop

i would keep a VERY LITTLE amount of slop for the tiny servo twitches

so that when your driving in a stiaght line your car wont be so twitchy

you know

hope it helps

it should be a page or two back pages on the tc4 thread

there pics there

Install a steering adjustment kit. I think Xray sells them. I just got one and it works great. Try this link.
