Adjust the steering trim on your transmitter.

sorry to tell you but you wont find a way to go straight every time with this car (at least I couldnt)
You can put some bearings and it may get better
Also the steering servo and its saver are really bad you could buy another with metal gears

Yeah, the stock steering isn't exactly precise...There are aftermarket alum. bellcranks w/ ball bearings that will help. Did you use loctite on the clutch retaining screw? You might need to re-do it (clean it well first though)

I had the same problem with mine. At low speed it would go straight and the faster it went the more it would pull left.

I ended up taking the front and rear diffs apart and relubing them. This ended up working, but I am not sure if it was the diff work that fixed it or just taking the whole car apart that solved the problem.

One simple suggestion is to make sure that none of your wheel nuts are too tight. This can cause some binding on the wheel.

Good luck.
