Hi Jeremy. I hate to say it, but it sounds like your servo is damaged. When a servo doesn't recenter it's time to replace it or have it repaired by the manufacturer.

On some cars, like the TC3, there might be some binding in the steering rack. Take it apart and clean it. If the problem is still there, then it's the servo.

You throw out the hitec servo you're using and get a Futaba, Airtronics or KO.

Before investing in a new servo, do check out:

1: The servo saver is adjusted tight enough (but not too tight, because then the servo for sure will be damaged )

2: Ensure that the steering dont bind anywhere, when the servo turns.

3: Disconnect the rod at the servo horn. Turn the steering by hand, to ensure the steering works smoothly.

Default Check ur servo saver first

Change the cheaper stuff first, that is the servo saver.

Those little metal rings that is inside the servo saver often have wear and tear problem.
