Default Steering Problem

I got an XRAY T1 EVO2. When my car turns, the inside wheel wobbles/vibrates seriously. I cannot figure out whether it is the pivot ball linkage problem or the axle problem.

Anybody can help? Thanks.

The servo saver is connected to linkages using pivot balls. The only thing I can tighten up is the screw on the servo horn. Do you mean that screw??

I found that there is little play on every ball cup. Do I need to change the linkages and the ball cups??

This is very frustating.

Thanks.

your steering servo must have strong holding power to keep your wheels in desire steering direction on corners.

Thanks, I agree with you.

Perhaps, I played with the linkages too much (uninstall and snap them back many times). I will replace the linkages first and see whether it improves.

I'll get a better servo later. Is Futaba servo OK, and what is the price?

futaba, sanwa and ko make good servos but I prefer futaba servos because of the reliability. for one of its top of the line servo, it will cost you from 500 to 700 HK$

Is this will the car off the ground and only at full steering lock? If this is the case then it is normal, the CVD cross pin has gone to the end of its slot and is locking....... don't worry about it. The Xray ball ends are the best there are....a little bit of play is normal.
