This is a common problem on the RC8. As long as everything else is built and adjusted properly you can try to reduce the epa (end point adjustment slightly).

Check that you are not using excess droop.

Have the car at normal ride height with arms about level. Adjust epa to where it starts to bind (steering block against C-hub) and then back it of somewhat (do the same for both left and right of course).

Check that there is no binding in the steering linkage, during the full suspension travel, as you turn the steering.

You can in addition, as mentioned in an other similar post, dremel of a mm or so from the end of the dog bones.
