My slash 2wd has some (for me) invisble damage.
After a hard crash on our circuit, the car fails to drive straight ahead,it drives with a substantial deviation to the right. This of course can be solved by turning the trim knob all the way to the left, but does not solve the problem itself.. In addition, when driving the car on asphalt (with trim all the way to the left) it will drive straight, but when driven on the straigt at our clay circuit it will pull to the right very heaviliy when going full throttle.
I think there is something wrong witth the servo , but is there anything else I should check ? (on first sight there is nothing that looks bend)
agree with skye spot on assessment that would be where I would start

Make sure your bellcranks (the cylinders underneath the front skidplate) are screwed in and not popped out of socket. Next, make sure your camber (tire angle) isn't messed up.

After that, adjust your servo horn:
- Turn off the truck
- Remove the horn
- Turn on the truck and zero the trim
- With the wheels straight as possible, put the horn on the servo and push it in a little (so the splines are engaged a bit)
- Turn off the Truck and mash the horn on all of the way
- Turn on the truck and check that your steering is close to centered with zero trim (may not be perfect, but that is ok).
- Turn off the truck, put in and tighten down the servo screw
- Turn on the truck, fine tune center with the trim, then check your end-points.

Well, I tested the truck on the track, and it drives perfect! Everybody thanks for helping out.
