Default Won't steer left...

Okay. It's me again with yet another problem. My Volcano SV steers to the right, but not to the left now.
It appears that the upper buffer mount may be slipping a bit on the lower buffer mount, on the Steering A. Does this sound right?
Why is it made in two parts instead of one?
Is there an aluminum upgrade available?
Thanks all.

It's made like that to save the servo if you hit somethiing with the wheel or from the bomps on the ground and stuff to keep the servo gears from stripping out, it's actually called a servo saver. Tighten down the aluminum thumb screw on top of it. That should take out the slack and let it start steering properly.

Thanks for the reply.
It looks like I have it srewed all the way down. It appears there's a stop to prevent it from screwing down any further.

If that's the case then it could be possible that the Servo saver body is worn out. Just to let you know there is a Mod that can be done with an aluminum steering assembly from hot bodies for an RS4 3 and a Team Associated Servo Saver. Ya have to shave a fraction of an inch off the top of the A-Arms for clearance, but other than that it works great.
