    Steering Problem

    I just replaced the servo saver for the steering on my Volcano and now the damn thing won't turn all the way or return to center when I let go of the steering control. Any ideas? I smacked it pretty good on one of the front wheels and stripped the original saver as well as the lower control arm that the wheel mounts to. Replaced everything and now this. Any ideas?

    RE: Steering Problem

    lift the front wheels off the ground. turn on remote and reciever.
    set your steering trim to neutral ''0''
    check if the hweels are straight.
    if not then check if the servo arm is in a vertical position. if not, take it off and make it vertical. (gives you full travel in both direction)
    then, adjust your linkage from the servo arm to the servo saver to make your wheel straight.

    your front wheel SHOULD NOT be paralel. toe out for front wheels always just a bit.

    try your truck.
    final adjustment with your steering trim...

    If that does'nt work, thetn buy a new truck lollll
    just kidding.... cant help mor then that... but this should do it.

    if it does'nt fix your issue, maybe something else is bent (linkage arm??)

    keep us posted on this one!
