    Single servo problems.

    I have a problem when I turn left and release the steering the servo doesn't return the wheels to the center. If i turn right there is no problem. What do you think is causing this?

    Stock servo horn? Hi torque servo? More info will help to figure it out.
    Stripped horn is first thing to check.
    Wheels turn free left and right ,no binding? When unhooked from the servo?.

    Its a hitec 7955 servo with a aluminum servo horn and servo saver. There is no binding when the servo is turned off. They do turn to both sides when powered the only thing is that it won't fully return to center when turning right.

    Pillow balls to tight? if their a little tight sometimes they will show the same behavior where the wheels will not return to center on one side

    I would say maybe your servo saver has a bit of slop and is sitting at different positions after you turn one way or another. Mine did that so i installed a small washer to make the spring tighter in the saver and seems to have cured it.

    All of the above and make sure you have the chrome spring in the servo saver, its the heavy duty one. Everyone else has touched on about everything else barring a bad servo. Pillow Balls is my bet but have been wrong before LOL

    Do you by chance have an integy servo saver? If do mine did this too. There was slop and no real true center position. I replaced it with an HR setup and the problem went away.

    I have the HR servo saver. I am using a STRC single servo saver arm. Could the arm be whats causing the problem?

    I had a HR servo saver and had some problems with tires centering replaced with the STRC system.
    My bet is you have some slop with the HR servo saver and STRC arm. Look around and see if you can find the STRC servo saver they are hard to find as they sell fast. Also the best on the market IMO.
