Excessive steering slop
- Rod ends are binding or have developed play
- Replace the worn or binding rod ends and hollow ball connectors.
- Servo saver is worn out
- If steering becomes sluggish, or centering problems start to arise, replace the servo saver. (Rustler 3744 servo saver shown)
- Bushings in the steering bellcrank have developed play
- Replace the worn bellcrank bushings (Rustler bell crank shown)
- Bushings or ball bearings in wheel hubs are worn
- Inspect the bearings in the wheels to check for wear. If they have developed slop from wear, replace them with new bushings or ball bearings.
