For various reasons only just got back to my buggy to "play" again after the winter. Looked at the steering servo saver and guess what?

The adjuster nut had come all the way off the end (so the servo saver was as loose as hell!), so the slightest resistance to the steering and it would just be slipping!

Planning to get out and run it in the coming days so will check if this has solved the problems but it certainly won't have helped!

A few things u can check or change. Servo saver, tires, springs, fluid weights n shocks and diffs, tire angles and speed. Even the best setup buggy will only carry so much speed while turning. The biggest thing I had to learn going from racing 1/10 scale to 1/8 is u have to slow a little more. 1/8 scale carries more weight and momentum
