Default Keep hitting brakes

Hi guys,

Hae got a new problem.

Hope i can seek some help.

I`ll have to be a little long winded on this one as i don`t know the terms.

ok, here goes... i`m running a shaft driven car. and i`m having problems with the plastic attachment which is connectted to the front servo that turns the wheels. i hope i`m clear. whenever i turn left, the servo pulls back and cause the plactic piece to hit my brakes. i`ve tried using a thinner plastic piece , but it still hits my brakes. i can`t lessen my angle of turning as it wouldn`t be enough. any advice pls?

Thanks alot!

Cheers!

What did you change? Didn't you change a servo? With the stock servo mine is about 5/6mm away from the rotor when the wheels are at full left turn. The servo can pull the linkage a little more but it still doesn't hit the rotor

By the way you are describing it you might want to check your servo end point adjustment. Hope this helps.

thanks for all your replies. i can`t get my pic up as the file`s too big. might wanna try editing the size.

but meant time, i have changed my servo once.from my stock perfex to a futaba 3003. i can only tune my end point adjustments from my controller. and tuning it to the max would mean hitting on my brakes. to the point where it doesn`t hit on my brakes, would mean too little steering.

It`s hard to describe the plactic piece i`m talking about. it`s the one which connects my servo to the point where it turns the wheels.

my servo`s working fine.

I know exactly what you are talking about, I have the same car. Your talking about the servo horn hitting the rotor. Did you use the horn that came with the car or one that came with the servo? If you used the one that came with the servo it might be a different length.

Be sure your using the correct servo horn. There should be a few sets in the kit. Choose the one that goes to your servo and you should be fine.

Also be sure to check your steering linkage length. It could be too long or too short causing it too pull so far back to get yourself the turn you need. Making sure this is set correctly, how the instructions say....then it should be good.
