Questions?? Got a hard pull to the left. What to do???

Hey guys, got a used xray t1 from one of the guys one here. Finally got all my parts in and test drove it and it won't stay straight. I adjusted the turn buckle and thought I adjusted the trim via the tx but the darn thing won't go straight. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What kind of radio equip. Do you have? I tend do have this problem when I have a bad bind or when using old am of fm sets. Chances are your servo is glitching from a bad bind if you have a 2.4 system

Electronics aside, check that your droop, spring rates are equal from side to side. Make sure your chassis is balanced side to side, too. If all is well, check for binding in your diff cups, f/r uprights and your thrust bearing.

Those are the only possible issues i can think of..

Good luck!

Take the pinion off the motor and check all wheels run freely by hand. Then remove and check all universal CV's are in good condition. Also check there and no notches in the out drives.
When I've had this same problem it was a bound or broken universal.

I recently had a similar issue, and my radio wouldn't adjust anymore this is what I did and it fixed it.

turn your car on *so your servo finds center
adjust your radio so the steering adjustment is at 0
take the servo arm off
make the wheels straight
put it back on as if it were in the straight position

any adjustment from here should be slight and your radio should be able to manage that
