Have you tried a different steering servo? It could be shot. Also, is your car achieving maximum steering travel? Something could be blocking the way of the servo horn/servo saver, that could prohibit a car from having a tight cornering radius.

Also, it might be beneficial to have someone put your car on a setup station (hudy, integy, etc.) to see if your car is getting adequate steering throw. If you can find someone with a board to help, your car should have around 40 degrees of throw in both directions.

me43, may I know what did you mean "do u power into the turn, or are u coasting into the turn?"

Im2lazy, I haven try other type servo. One of the racer saying that I need to use digital servo and Tx. But when I turn the steering it look like turn a lot >20 degree. Yes, I try to use Hudy to do the alignment on chamber, toe, caster.

Pls advice on the digital servo with stock Rx and Tx. May I know the weight for front shock and rear shock and rear diff. Thanks.

No steering with a one way... .

One-ways have so much more corner entry steering, I couldn't imagine it.


Did you say only 20 degrees of servo travel in both directions? That is half of what my car has.

Oh, yeah, unless you use the 3pk with the HRS reciever, digitals are in no way a necessity.

I'll double check what I've got, but around 20 degrees is very little throw (or so I believe).

okay, I lied, 20 degrees is good. Then it comes down to setup.
