    Turning radius?

    Hi guys I just got my mini summit today. I bought it used. The turning radius on this truck is pretty wide also when accelerating and turning it barly turns. Is this normal? Is the servo saver shot? Do I need a new servo? Just trying to get this truck to turn like it should.

    If they put heavy/thick fluid in the differentials... that would cause this.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    That would cause it to not turn when under throttle? I was thinking weak servo saver. Hmmmmm

    Yes, heavy fluid can be a cause... as well as a weak servo saver.
    The servo saver theory can be tested... as well as the weak servo theory. Hold the tires still and turn... if the servo turns, but the tires don't; weak saver. (keep in mind that you are going to be able to defeat the saver, so this is a judgement call) If the servo doesn't turn; weak servo.

    Also, if the front tires are not touching the ground enough to turn under acceleration... there isn't a servo that will help. lol
