    Problem!

    Anyone else have a problem with their slash pulling to one side or the other?

    Mine started doing it today...badly! Soon as I hit the gas it goes right...hard right, and not just from a standing stop even when it rolling along at a descent speed.

    Check your steering trim. That could be it.

    take of your wheels and tires, and look at the tie rods and see if both sides match up

    Check for binding as well in your driveline.

    I took the tires off, and made sure the drive train was cleared. I will have to try more things tomorrow...

    if you changed from a 2 cell to a 3 cell that will make it drive very different.
    just a thought
    my neighbor had a 3c 8000 in his, not controlable at full throttle
    my 3c 5000 lighter batt not as bad

    I have been using the 3s for a while with out this problem, I think something is binding in the axle area.

    I noticed the servo saver is WEAK on mine (so I eliminated it, and went old school on my saver) When I would stab the throttle with the truck off the ground, the wheels had enough rotating force to activate the saver to one side.

    How did you eliminate it? Did you glue them and add a servo saver to the servo its self?

    Yes! Just got back from the track and tore the front end apart because my front end chatters like mad because of the weak servo saver spring. Especially with 1/8 buggy wheels. I will be doing this mod tomorrow.
