Default mini JRX2 is twitchy as heck!

I just got a new mini jrx2. The issue I'm having is that when going in a straight line with throttle, any steering input nearly always results the over correcting.
I put a zip tie on the servo saver, hoping that was giving slope in the system but that didn't seem to help.
I can turn down the steering throw but then that limits turning ability.
I haven't yet tried any adjustments to toe, I'm not even sure which way (toe in or out) might help but you'd think it wouldn't come out of the box this hard to drive in a straight line!

it's been my experience that all 1/18 scale cars are twitchy. but you can check the front alignment, if it has toe out try zero toe (just measure it with a ruler or tape measure). if it's already zero toe, try adding a small amount of toe in. toe in helps with top end stability.
if that doesn't get desired results sometimes a better steering servo, servo horn/servo saver can help, but do to the vehicles size it's still going to be noticeably twitchier than a larger scale vehicle.
