Default Info Pls

Hi Guys

Has anyone experienced problems with the steering of the car?

With my car, when I turn right, it turns all the way but when I turn left, it turns about 75%...

Any ideas..

Default F180 Steering

Disconnect the servo arm and manually turn the steering to make sure there is no binding or interference. Check to make sure your steering servo is centered and that the servo arm is fit correctly. Make sure the upright ball end adjusters are not too tight. Does your radio has steering end limit adjustment?-adjust.

Good luck.

Thanks pcamp.

Yeah, I checked all that, also re centered the servo.

Let me ask this, when you turn your wheel to the left, your servo saver hits the front bulkhead and then stops turning?

Is that how your one is assembled as well?

The steering bellcrank arm (to the servo) does hit the bulkhead, but on right turns. The steering on my car is EPA limited on left hand turns to match the right. Does yours look like photo?

Thats right, I think my car is teh same as yours. Ok, so then I need to control the turning amount with my EPA on my controller.

Thanks

Couple of other little tips:
I found that some of the 3mm set screws used in the center of the ball ends can jam in the balls not allowing enough engagement to the ball end. A tap had to be run through the ball end to finish the thread.
The rear rocker pivot bolt threads can easily pull out of the rear mount points. A 4 mm helicoil can be used to repair.
I removed some of the blue brake pad material from around the brake pad pins. This allowed the pads to slide freely helping them to release quickly and completely.

I really like the looks of this car, but want to know where I would run it?

Where do you F180 owners run your cars? Or don't you run them?
