i would suggest turning down your dual rate on the radio. it sounds as if the wheel is turning too far.

you can add a few shims . just make sure they dont bind . and also turn down your end point adjustments. so your servo isn't driving too far . try setting your end points to full lock then back them off ... Adjusting your dual rate will adjust the speed of your servo .. start a 100% then dial some out to your preference ....also you can add some o-ring's on the ball studs to take up some slop from your turn buckles ... have fun !!!

Check to make sure you do not have any bad bearings... this may cause the shaking that you are complaining of.

You may also have a bent outdrive hub or drive shaft... that would cause the same behavior as well.

your drive shaft is probably bent.

Default Help

I've run this car a lot. The steering is turning too far and the CVD is chattering. Adjust the endpoints on your radio so it stops the chattering. Plus, it'll stop you from turning the wheels too far and locking the steering. It's a lot like slamming the front brakes before entering a corner. Your car will carry a lot more corner speed and decrease lap times. Good luck.
