Default Mbx7 eco twitchy/too much steering

Just recently got this mbx7 eco buggy. Any tips on helping me to tame down the twitchy/too much steering? Aside from the epa/dr/expo settings on the transmitter.

For non-radio settings try thicker front diff fluid, thicker front sway bar, thicker front shock oil to calm the car down.

Ok. Would trying ackerman adjustments possibly help out as well?

It could but I generally believe in using ackerman as a fine-fine tuning thing once the rest of the setup is fundamentally sound on the stock geometries. Knowing you bought that car used and that it's very rare to describe anything 1/8th scale as "twitchy", did you check and re-fill all the diffs? An empty diff at any point in the drivetrain is as likely to be making the car twitchy as anything else wrong with the overall setup. Ditto for the shock oil.
