    Its your servo saver, trust me. It only has to be off by a degree or two to cause it to pull and we can't see a few degrees difference. Its only a $10 part. If nothing is binding and your servo is fine that only leaves the servo saver. If I'm wrong I will gladly send you the cash to cover the cost of the servo saver.

    so i drive the car so far now, and it will turn on its own. i would set the remote down and walk to the car and the reciever box is blinking red. if i pick up the car and move towards the remote it picks signal back up.. i have rebinded it and reset esc. i even binded it with the button on reciever, its the tqi system. could this be the resuelt of a bad servo. i heard a bad servo can glitch things up. it kinda of a hit and miss things. i just walked around with the car in my hand with the remote stationary, and it didnt do it.

    checked the antenna wire and the connection, all the wire to. i drove around the apartment for about 10 minutes and it didnt do it. its still no full on center, but didnt loose the connection and start blinkin red. on seems to do it when farther away from the remote. i just went blank minded, ummm. it never did this before so im not sure. i know it did it yesterday before i took apart the servo to check the gears. but didnt do it before i tore the car apart to top off the diffs and added new knuckles and pushrods.
    soooo

    it doesnt do get glitchy at short range

    1. the servo went bad

    2. there is a range issue, but when i didnt drive it and just walked with the car in my hand away from the remote.

    3.???????
