Default SCT Alignment/Truck Pulls to the right

Hi all!

New to R/C and recently got a new TLR 22SCT RTC from someone who got it and didn't like it so I realize it's not a beginner truck, but it was cheaper than a new 2WD Slash

Anyway, it's total stock for setup but it pulls to the right when going straight. I can trim it out, but I have to use a good amount which throws off the steering throw.

Is this something to due with adjusting the camber links or maybe the toe and camber? I've also read that it might be how the server horn is is sitting on the servo. For what it's worth I'm going to be putting an aluminum steering rack and servo horn in soon. So is there a way to correct the alignment by adjusting something on the truck?

Thanks guys!

To re-center your steering on the car itself:
1) Re-set your steering trim to zero/center on the radio.
2) Re-set your toe - you probably want a slight amount of toe-out all while making sure the l&r links are exactly the same length.
3) Remove your servo horn, turn on your radio, put the servo horn back on the servo now with the wheels as close to straight as possible and then trim it from there.

I think resetting the center on the servo/servo horn would be the most effective immediately. If you don't you'll constantly be adjusting the steering trim as it wasn't centered to begin with. Really easy to do, only takes a few minutes. There are also a lot of good write-ups about adjusting the turnbuckles and such.
