Here is my Recoil running: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXhGr2IuxUg. I had the rubber tires in that video, but I usually go with the softest foams they have.

What do you mean by 'it won't steer', does it understeer, oversteer, off power, on power or does it handle bad in general. If it's understeering, putting a wall of super glue around the front tyres will make it worse. What tyres are you running and on what surface are you running it on?

What kind of servo are you using, and more importantly what servo saver? The servo saver supplied with the car is too soft. What may be happening is what I refer to as snap steer. In this situation, the servo turns but the servo saver deflects. When the servo saver deflects it loads the spring on the saver, then suddenly the servo saver spring releases it's energy locking up the saver and jerking the steering wheels causing the car to kick the back end out. I use a Futaba 9650 servo with a solid horn. The servo has metal gears and is quite durable. The Recoil chassis is pre drilled to accept this servo and mounts are included in the parts bag. Hope this helps.

Since you are still using the stock servo saver, see if you can find a stiffer spring to run on it. I run a solid servo horn on mine, but you gotta be careful when you do it. What brand of servo do you use?

You're very welcome. It is a metal gear servo I hope. I would not try it on a plastic geared servo. Good luck. Keep me posted. Before you drive it go back to the box stock settings for the shocks as a starting point.
