Default Servo problem!

Hi all,
Need some help with my steering servo. The servo is a Sanwa (Airtronics) steering a new tamiya TT-01. All the assembly was done as instructed in the manual, and the steering in the neutral position with the transmitter (neutral trim) - wheels straight! car taken out for a spin at the local track and after a few battery packs...the steering is going out of trim - trimming from the transmitter corrects it. Checked for any mechanical linkage slippage..servo horn has not moved out of the servo's shaft splines.Mechanical linkages to wheels good - no turnbuckles or camber linkages in his kit! Problem seems that the servo is loosing ability to centre itself. Tried a different transmitter (Futaba) and servo worked well! Took the transmitter to the LHS and changed the transmitter. NOW - with the new transmitter the problem is back agn!!

Electrics-
Battery packs - various
LRP Runner speedo
Kyosho 17turn
Sanwa Dash Tx/Rx

Any ideas?

Associated TC3
Kyosho Lazer
Tamiya TT-01

Try fresh batteries--both the radio and receiver. Check the tire wear too.

Thks for answering my post.
Have tried new batteries for Tx and freshly charged car battery - new tires! Same prob!
Still at a loss!
Will try changing whole radio set up with another set and see how things go.
