    slash steering problem

    Had a few bad crashes lately...and now my stock slash won't turn left. I noticed that it makes nice tight turns when turning right completely but will not make the same tight turn left. What gives?

    I appreciate any help I can get

    It's completely stock titan motor and esc. I'll look up how to adjust the servo saver. And if I adjust the trim to the right it will turn the wheels. If I adjust the trim to the left it will not move at all.

    sounds like your servo saver jump a notch,no big deal,it did its job.
    Take it off to reset it so you don't hurt your servo.

    Is adjusting the servo saver in the manual? I'm completely new to rc's.


    And thanks for the help.

    I don't think so,but just unscrew it,Pull it off,turn on your system set the steering trim to 0,this will center the servo,and put it back on,if you wish to find out witch way it jumped,and snap it back,go ahead,however this will weaken the servo saver a bit,but their very cheap,if you have a lhs near,you may want to wait till tomorrow and just get a new one.

    If left-trim won't move the wheels then you'll need to re-center the servo saver as billy said. Sounds like the servo saver did its job.

    Sounds like the servo saver to me. When you pull the saver off with the one small screw, make sure that the trims are set to zero and the wheels are straight when you put it back on. Put some pressure on it and check the teeth to make sure they are still intact.

    Thank you everyone. It was the servo saver. The teeth were all fine. I didn't screw down the screw very tight. Not sure how much tension should be put on it. At first I think I over tightned it, because it was creeking. So I backed it off and its driving like it should.

    Good job. I thought someone mentioned it above, but you should pick up a black HD Kimbrough servo saver as a spare.
