Default Steering servo??

Hi my steering servo on my RTR is really weak and only moves a tiny bit each way. When I put new batteries in my 1/10 buggy it helps for a tiny bit and then goes all pathetic again. Should I just buy a new one? If so which - Futaba S3003 or other?

If you're running an offroad buggy, I'd go to a ball bearing metal gear high torque with a heavy duty servo saver. Off road vehicles take a lot of punishment on the steering and a good heavy duty servo will last much longer. I use Hitec 625BBMG on many of mine.

are you sure its just that your D/R is off. the bellcrank steering may not be tightened either. IF you have taken the servo out and ran it and its still weak then it the servo but you may just need to adjust the D?r or the bellcrank
