Default Is it normal for steering servos not to return to their trim position?

I'm talking about a Kyosho Fazer which never returns to the straight steering position after even holding the car in the air and either going left or right. It'll go back to normal on one side, but never thie other?

I've replaced the steering parts from the servo and even the servo with another Kyosho servo so could this be an issue with the trim on the transmitter or should I try a steering servo with more torque?

Thanks

if you are convinced there is no binding, then either the servos are both faulty, or its worth trying a different transmitter and or reciever.

Disconnect you steering ball cups and test by hand how easy the steering knuckles move
had a problem like this in my serpent.

I over tightened some of the steering the was the quickest way 2 work it out

Steering seems ok when disconnected from the servo so ordered a proper trigger Kyosho transmitter. (Running a Ranger 2 right now)
