Default slop in steering ..

Hi Guys has anyone found where the slop is coming from in the steering?
its a pain in the ass trying to get the toe right, yuo can hold the servo then move the whole steering linkage side to side a couple of mm

i tried to replace the ballends on the steering linkage but no luck, i have also placed a .2 shim between the top deck and ackerman holder

I dont have a problem with steering slop .. I have however replaced the bushes on the steering post with bearings.. maybe worth a try?

Either the servo saver isnt tight enough...
The internal sleeve and housing is damaged..
The Top or bottom bearing is loose..
Or the post is loose...

Cant think of any other reason why.
Oh.. maybe servo stripped a gear?

PS: Those bearings are tiny..

Hi!
don't worry!
which Oring you installed inside your Shocks? Black or Gray?

If you have the standard black Oring, this is the problem! unfortunately are no good, TM made a new version of oring, and ar gray, these are perfect!

I hope to be helpful for you!

Ciao Ciao from Italy!

I have one and used it once, havent had a chancet o really do some back to back tests with the original as the weather hasnt been so kind.

i did find it felt softer than the stock, and also it was so easy tos et the front tweak so that both arms lift the same left to right
