As a last measure, take the servo out the car and turn the wheels lock to lock and see if you can feel anything binding up, its the only true way of feeling what the car is doing when its steering.

Check the pins in the cvd's are not loose and rubbing on the hubs too- that could get real ugly....
sorry i was wrong there was a shot bearing. just changed it thanks all for your help

The steering rack is on the TC4 completly differant to the TC3. For the TC4, AE used a design similar to the Nitro TC3. However, if the bolts are too tight, it will bind and be horrible and tight.

Loosen the 2 screws that hlod the steering rack to the chassis about 1/4 of a turn. then do as "tc3team" says and take the servo hrn off and move the steering. hopefully this would of fixed it.
