    servo questions and problems

    hey all
    My merv seems like it doesnt want to cut the wheels unless they are completley free from anything, like they have to be turning in order to cut the wheels. i was told that the "spring" may have got overloaded... how do i check this? and can i fix it myself? or should i just get a new servo? also, i was thinking of putting dual servos in it, would this make a big difference? or just eat up more battery charge...
    help?

    What do you mean by "cut"?

    And putting in 2 servos will not take up much power at all. They will make a difference with bigger tires or quicker/stronger turning.
    Just accelerate, and only good will come.
