    Turning to left on brakes

    Hello,
    I have problem with my erbe.
    I niticed problem on last race. When I brake very hard, my erbe wants turn to the left. Always to the left.
    I tested it on asphalt too. It is tha same. When front of the car is fully down (not skid touching ground), erbe is turning to the left.
    Trims are good, servo don't do this problem.
    Where I have to begin finding problem?
    Wrong geometry (camber) or wrong lenght of dampers...?
    Thank you for your advice.

    If you just let off the throttle and coast, does it stay straight or other?

    Bearing are good.
    Without throttle it stay straight. It turns only on hard brakes.

    May be. I will try. I have diff to change. But "on table" it looks like good.
    And what about different lenght of rear ampers or pushrods and different droop on rear arms?

    Yep it could be the diff, wheel hex rounded out, broken axle pins, etc.

    Caster, Camber, Shock Preload, shouldn't make the truck pull when braking.
    Its All relative to your perspective.

    I tryed simple think. On the ground I lifter rear of erbe in the center and LR wheel stayed on the ground little bit longer. So I put RR pushrod to the inner hole on arm......and erbe become turning to the right. I revised dampers and pushrods a RR pushrod is little shorter then LR. So i will refill dampers and set pushrods right and hope, it will be good.

    Good point, it never hurts to get the truck back to stock specifications. Replace any of those plastic rod ends that seem worn or stripped.

    It has been a few days since making changes..... Did your changes with the pushrods etc make it stop straight again?

    I am sorry, I was busy at work.
    refilled dampers and revised long of pushrods solved my problem.
    But erbe was nervous and still turned, but not to only one side.
    So I changed front spring for harder to not allow front of truck drop down so much on brakes and now, erbe has more weight on rear side and it looks like my problem is solved.
