Please see the next video and let me know if you have any idea about what's wrong with my steering system!
"As you can see in the video, by steering left everything works fine and when release the wheels are comming 100% back .. but when I'm steering right and release the wheels are not coming all the way back! I've tried to open and clean the steering system but without success! what can I do?"
This happened after I replaced the front wheels bearings.
Thanks in advance,
Seems weird to be an issue from changing wheel bearings... Looks like a servo issue. Either alignment, linkage of bad servo electronics. Not sure. But I would try removing the servo horns and checking the rotation degree of the servos while not connected to the horns. Then also checking how easily the steering linkage can be turned by hand.
To SUMMIT up, its my coolest RC.
hmm .. it looks like I'm not the only one having this issue:
by any chance did you tighten the pillow balls up? I had the same issue on a maxx after adjusting pillow palls had one side a little tight. Showed the exact same symptom you have
Like Crock said check your pillow balls and make sure they are not to tight, next thing would be a broken tooth on a gear in one of the steering servos.

Endeavoring to persevere !
Thanks guys for your thoughts,
The pillow balls can't be to tight, otherwise the suspension would be very slow or stuck and it seems to be fine!
I'll open this weekend the servos and check the gear teeth!
The suspension worked fine in my max. It was just one screw to tight. Don't rule it out untill u try
Yep those dang pillow balls can cause that bruise on your forehead to get bigger and bigger; I don’t why but I always seem to overlook them.
I’m sure everyone has their own method but I tighten them until they’re snug and then back them off ¼ of a turn.
I have now started to just check them first. ESC smoking......check the pillow balls. Shift Servo won't engage......check the pillow balls. LOL

They usually don't back out much. I have tightened mine once in 6 months. I also fill mine full of white grease. The dust seal has a x in it so u can push grease or oil in
I'd use powdered graphite along with teflon tape on the pillow ball caps.

I'll keep an eye on the pillow balls from time to time .. but they should be fine!
I'd put diff oil on them.. it will collect dust but this will keep the water away
