Default Sprint 2 Sport - newbie.

Hey guys,

I brought a hopped up HPI sprint 2 sport after reading that they are good for beginners, its got heaps of alloy parts, its the first model Sprint 2 sport i believe, its not the new camaro one and doesn't have the 2.4ghz controller.

Anyway the biggest problem I'm having is that it will oversteer really easy when i turn right, but when i turn left it just seems to understeer really bad, the shocks appear to be setup the same and the front wheels seem to turn the same angles both left and right, anyone have any idea what may cause this?

also this is likely related - when i go full throttle the car veers off to the side, i tried adjusting the steering trim but this doesn't work, at low speed i can get it tracking straight but under heavy acceleration it just veers off to the side still.

There is a bit of slop in the steering.

Could be a few things:
No shock oil in one of the shocks.
A stuffed bearing
Tweeked chassis (twisted)
A tyre thats not glued well

Hope this helps
