Redcat Shredder XT Steering Issue..
 
Hello everyone! Recently, I got my Redcat Shredder XT running again after leaving it sit for a few years! Was really fun when I got it running, but when I took it off of a jump with a ramp I built, the steering no longer wants to work! I took the body off and checked all the connections for the steering servo, and everything looks fine! The steering rod is not busted either! I cannot for the life of me figure out what is wrong with it! I looked online and can't seem to find anything. Do any of you know what might be happening?

You may have found it out but you didn't say if your servo tries to move and I'd so over powers the servo saver cause it makes a difference. I have had a rock get wedged between my chassis and center link (Ackerman). If you manually move the wheels you can feel for smooth bind free operation.

After I found out that it won't steer anymore, I checked to see if something might have gotten caught in the steering system. When I steer the wheels with my hands, it moves the servo motor as it should. There is nothing caught in the steering system. I even checked all the plugs and wires to see if a wire broke or a connector came out, but everything looks like it should be working.
