Default Steering Problem

My steering is fine at slow speeds with the steering trim but at high speeds it tends to swerve one way. Any, help?

Check to make sure your linkage and servo are ok, and your servo saver is tight enough. It may just be inherent to that truck.

would the cars balance have any affect on this? under hard acceleration, my car would tend to swerve to 1 side as well until i balanced it out.

find out which side is lighter and then even it up by adding weight. ive only balanced my onroads up but to do it i balanced the car on 4 springs under the chassis and added weight to 1 side until the springs on the left and right were compressed evenly. not sure if that method will work for you as your rustler is probably alot heavier than a 1.10 onroad
