Default Steering question.

I have a tc5 and, you know when you pick up the car and apply throttle and then turn left or right and the I guess the shafts vibrate( don't know the real name for it) is there away to fix that? I'm anal about stupid stuff about that.

could be the slight gap between the steering post and the bearing that goes around the that post causes some wheel wobble---i put some threadlock there to fill in the gap

I assume you're talking about the axle shafts (CVAs) wobbling? The CVs can bind at the extreme steering angles. I don't know for the TC5, but maybe there is a double jointed CV you can get to reduce binding. Also, make sure to minimize slop in suspension pivots and steering joints and make sure the axle blade (plastic part that fits over the end of the axle and slides into the outdrive) are not worn too much.
