Default Kyosho Fazer steering needs help!

I've just got two of these and it's a fast car for the car parks (I don't race), I like it but I have a problem.

Both of them veer off to one side even with the trim set to line the wheels straight. It's a pain in the backside especially at speed.

Are there any hop ups I can get to sort this or did anyone with a Fazer solve this issue? I was thinking about a better servo but I don't know if the problem is rubbish linkages? Even my old Tamiya TGS slooooooooooow nitro stayed straighter than this!

Never had a Fazer but there are many things that can cause this, few of which have anything to do with the steering.

First, check to make sure all four tires have drive. A broken dogbone or stripped wheel hex or something like that will cause all sorts of problems.

I suspect the problem is a lack of traction with a shaft drive. Shaft drive cars suffer from torque steer, especially if the tires break loose under power. I doubt the stock tires have a lot of grip.

Thanks. I notice the fazers steering servo is pushed/pulled from only one side which might be a problem but i'll check the shafts. Thanks
