Default Steering vibration

I noticed today that i'm getting alot of vibration in my steering on my Cyclone TC. I've checked everything that I can think of but nothing seems to fix it, unless I turn the EPA down to 70, but then my steering sucks. Any ideas?

Are you running a spool?

I never understood why it does that with the stock shaft? Tamiya and Xray get it too so thats why aftermarket came out with the one that hot bodies made for the HB tc. The HB web site say The DCJ or (Double Cardan joint) shaft breaks the single pivot point into two pivot points resulting in less drag and shallower shaft angles during sharp turning. I could feel and see the different

having unbounced wheels could also make it worse.

All cars with a spool get it near full lock!

Xray brought out the ECS driveshafts to eliminate it, Litemodz do a proper CVD with eliminates it and I believe several others do something similar, though they are always option parts.
