Default ARGH!!!

Long story short I have a new 1/5 scale truck, 3pk hrs with hitec digital servos (5745and 5625) along with a 3300mah 6v reciever pack. I set everything up to the best of my knowlege and it worked great...For about 30 minutes. Now it will only steer in one direction and will not return to center. What gives? The throttle/brake servo works fine.

Before running I set the steering endpoints at 85% and the steering trim at 90 to align the wheels.
The throttle was set at 65% could this be a battery issue? Not charged fully?
I had no accidents and one very slow roll so I am pretty sure it's not physical damage.
The servos are rated at 4.8-6v so is the reciever.
The radio is set for hrs to match the hrs reciever.
What is the problem?
Please advise

Sorta sounds like a stripped gear in your steering servo, check that out.

I wish. My hrs reciever reprogramed the first servo(i think) so I switched to pcmtand the second on just threw in the towel after twenty minutes. I have switched to (2) hitec 805s(analog) and aft two hour every thing is perfect. The 5745s are on there way back to Hitec so hopefully when I get them back I can use them in tandem.
