Default my servo going the opposite direction, please help

I have sanwa M8 with RX211 receiver, and SX162-T servo for both steering and throttle. for switch, I use DSC switch from sanwa M8 box. the problem is, both steering and throttle servo is going at the opposite direction. When I turn left on my remote, the car is going right direction, so is the throttle, the car is braking when I press the accelerator.

anyone can help, please. I am a beginner, it`s my first Nitro RC car.

thanks for the reply.

The throttle and steering linkage will be too long if I turn the servo, and I didn`t get any extra linkage from the Kit box.
is there any possibility because of some setting on the transmitter?
(I have the M8 manual, but it`s all in japanese, I can not read it)

Read you manual, the M8 has a feature called servo reversing. Use it.
