The splines are in a slight different position in the new arm.

I would re center the servo to 0 first, then try that. maybe set a bit to the left if you need so much to the right.

someone told me you have to set the servo horn like 12 degrees to the front of the car for it to work right

You have to get all angles in the steering to be 90 degrees. So you have to adjust the lenght of the turnbuckles in a way that you get 90 degrees everywhere. After that you should put up the horn on the servo. And if it still needs a trim it's only 1 or 2 clicks.

With this 90 degree angles the angles of the servohorn is the least important, but the other ones are.
