    Here's the video from bashing a few days later. It was super windy, you can see the wind carry the car when it's airborn. But it's a blast to jump. The Rustler is my first 2wd, so it took a while to...

    So you're saying it's not a bad servo, they're just not indexed right? I was going to replace it. But I'll try that first. What do you do, just remove the linkages from both servos and put them back...

    First item is throttle trim. Go to page 31 in your manual and follow steps to change multi function knob to throttle trim, then adjust until the wheels stop turning at throttle rest.
