    ok i was a total noob once too and yes it sucks, so all you have to do is turn the little nob on the controller that says steering trim a little bit counter clockwise at a time to get your allignment to go more to the left and if your truck starts pulling to the left then turn it a little clockwise to get your allignment to go to the right and just keep dooing that until it evens out

    Try to adjust the steering trim if you can, if that dont work you need to make sure the turnbuckles are at the factory set length?

    Best thing to do is:

    1. Take the tires off
    2. Turn the truck upside down and take the two screws out of the top of the steering servos so the linkage is separated from the servos
    3. Plug batteries in and turn on your remote and truck
    4. Turn the steering trim to 0 on your remote
    5. Reconnect the steering linkage to the servos making sure the wheels are as straight as possible when re-attatched
    6. Put the wheels back on and your ready to go
    7. Adjust steering if needed with the steering trim on the radio to straighten the truck out.

    ++1 to kscherer. That is the way to correct way to do it if you have to move the steering trim alot.

    I had a severe pull when I first got mine as well. I also found the steering servos fighting each other alot. So I started with Page 26 of the manual (as mentioned above) and then ensured the toe links were the same length (pg 23)

    Have fun wrenching!
