Simple fix for that. Slow down before you turn.

Check the servo saver. if it is worn out it will cause that.

No there is a servo saver on the bell crank. Also check all the steering arms to make sure they are not loose, or worn out.

The CENTER OF GRAVITY is higher than a buggy. IT is a monstertruck. The problem is the speed so slow down when entering a turn. Servo saver......come on guys!

Are you saying the car turns without you turning the steering wheel?

If the truck is wondering all over the place without any steering input and then it rolls over that is a TELL TALE sign that your steering components are worn out, or your steering servo is glitching. Also, everyone else is correct, it's a monster truck, they will naturally roll over. I had to lower the ride height on my t-maxx in order to keep it from rolling on the slightest turns.

Its a monster truck.. They flip almost everytime you turn. They arent made for high speed turning. But if the wheels are moving without the servo turning i would check if your servo saver is tight enough or if you got a crappy servo then it wont have enough power at all to turn the wheels properly or keep them straight.

Softer springs, wider tires, lower ride height, heavier wheels.

I mean, it IS a monster truck.

Try not to turn so fast.

.... And be more descriptive with what you're dealing with. We can't read your mind and are not there watching your savage or watchIng you drive it.

Most servos are marketed to be high speed or high power, but not both. Your Hobbico could be undersized as far as power. You want power for steering. Which model is it?
