Default steering problem?


on my truggy i cant seem to get a very good turning circle. could this be from the arm from the servo to the steering point being to short?

or could it be a shitty servo?

i really have no idea i have checked it all and cant see anything that is wrong with it. The tyres can turn more than what the servo lets it so any help would be great?

1st thing I would check is the EPA (end point adjustment) on your radio, if it has one. What radio are you using? Also what truggy? If yours has a EPA adjustment don't go too far left or right, or you will burn up your servo. And if your radio don't have EPA then yes the short arm is hurting you, find a longer one and try it.

also look at your servo saver. if very old chances are you should replace with new parts.

If the servo is too weak it will not hold a line and your truck will be very unpredictable. A min of 200 oz is required in a truggy. If the servo, EPA and saver tension all check out then lower the front with the suspension limiters in 2-5 mm increments. That will always add more steering.
