alright,


after my race yesterday(i did pretty good for outdoor, my first time) i had a prob with my steering, i'll try to post a video of the porblem but in the mean time i explain it best i can. the problem is that when i turn my steering right it goes back straight but when i turn left it doesn't go back straight. so if you could post some pictures of what ur steering looks like and just your steering setup looks like that would be great.

thanks,
nate

HELLO RSX,

SOUNDS LIKE A BINDING PROBLEM WITH THE STEERING.FIRST OF ALL UN HOOK THE SERVO SAVER AND FEEL FROM MOVING LEFT TO RIGHT AND SEE IF IT IS FREE.USUALLY IF THE KING PIN SCREW FOR THE STEERING KNUCKLES ARE TIGHTEN TOO MUCH IT WILL BIND EITHER SIDES,PENDING HOW TIGHT IT WAS TIGHTEN.I CHECK THEM INDIVIDUALLY FROM THE KUCKLES THEM SELVES TO THE STEERING LINKAGES FOR ANY BINDING.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BEARINGS FOR YOUR STEERING POST TOO.

NOW IF EVERYTHING IS AS FREE AS IT CAN BE AND STILL NOT CENTERING,2 OTHER THINGS MAY FAIL ON YOU AT THIS POINT WHICH IS THE SERVO SAVER OR THE SERVO.
CHEAPEST THING TO REPLACE IS YOUR SERVO SAVER.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND A KIMBOUROUGH ,OR THE TAMIYA H/D SERVO SAVER WHICH IS RELIABLE ALL THE TIME.HOPE THIS WILL HELP YOU.IF NOT IF ONLY PICS CAN,LET ME KNOW.REPLACING THE SERVO WOULD BE THE LAST ITEM ON THE LIST.I USE A FUTABA 9402S FOR RELIABILITY,STRENGTH AND SPEED.

CHRISMAN

i haven't been able to try them since im not home but i think it might be my saver, cause i have a new servo tried 2 others just in case and it might be the kingpin and i have bearings in my steering post

thanx

I had a Lab late last year for a bit and I bought a bunch of 64 pitch pinions and spurs. I sold the Lab, but have not used the gears since then...if someone is interested in buying them drop me an email. I will make you a good deal. They are all basically new.

Hi Mytxx,

Hee!!hee!!..u found some power eh!!
Will see if I be running stk and mod.U running both classes..it's going to be a long wait,u know what I mean.
Last Sat race was a good show done by Mike and Korgae.
Man....too close.Hats down for Mike who had a bad marshalling but came all the way back from 5th to first and won by the mm..thru the finish line.Thanks to this 2 racers that keeps us wanting to be in the competition.A good show down between Schumacher and Losi.

Also we should thank Korgae for the generous give aways that he has.THANKS man.Those spur sizes are hard to get now locally...
See u all at the track this Friday for practice.Hey Mytxx...call me.I have to baby sit all day till late.We'll need a table for us.cya!!...

alright last question,


when you guys bought your lab what did you change on the chassis (adjusted anything different did anything to the drive shaft because since no one at my track runs this car you are my only help and you cant see my car. the reason for me asking is so i can have a very fast and very good turning car, in other words DIALED!!!!!!! i just ordered from speedtech the HD front arms and plastic out drives, i also did the thing that MYXTYPLYX said to chack and my diffs ran freely without binding. just any help would be the best

thanx
nate
P.S. WRITE BACK WITH SOME ANSWERS B FORE SATURDAY PLEASE

RSX Type 7even- Hey no need to make it your last question. Keep asking if you need help or feel free to make comments about your findings that might help others.

Some things you might want to check:

Make sure the rear belt is clearing the rear upper plate. I had to shave some material off mine so the belt doesn't rub on it.

The pulley gears should have a bit of play on the spur gear shaft. If not then they could be rubbing against the bearing or motor mount and could be robbing you of power.

Try to keep all your camber links as straight as possible by shimming the ball studs. this will keep your suspension working as free as possible.

Your shocks should stand up as straight as you can get it without making the support too flimsy. The shocks should be free on their mounts and not binding. A free suspension is a must if you want the car to react properlly to your tunning changes.

If your run stock, try dialling your radio so that the car starts to move forward while in neutral, then back it off a notch. This will reduce motor break that stock motors tend to have. It will allow the car to roll through the corners and give you more corner speed. It will also allow you to get on the throttle faster.

If you set up your car like I have said before, try driving the car as hard as you can go (cleanly). Get on the gas earlier than your used to.

About your steering problem, check the output gear on your servo. If this is stipped, it will skip on your servo saver and keep your streering from returning to center. If your output gear is metal or is OK, check the servo saver where the output gear meets it.

Let us know how you do and if anything here helps you.
Good luck!
