    You might have put something back together the wrong way maybe? Post some pics or look at the exploded views of your model.

    I never removed the bell cranks or steering mech when I did the rebuild lol. so im a little puzzled as to how the bell crank can contact the shaft on full lock. but ill pull up the exploded viee. also noticed that my servo saver is quite tight. how do I go about adjusting it if I can.

    You may not have your servo centered properly, also your turnbuckles on your axle carriers,,,, do you have them installed into the right holes?

    Zero your trim, remove the servo saver or servo horn on the servo and center it, adjust the linkages to match up.

    I would go adjust the servo saver spring at this point,,,,,, that's not your problem.

    If you have the 2.4 ghz radio you can set your endpoints so it doesn't hit.
