    You might be able to use a servo wire splitter. Just keep in mind that you will be pushing the amps for both servos through the splitter.

    I broke the outer teeth of the center diff in an accident that destroyed the entire transmission (hit a big rock at full throttle). Otherwise they have been fine in my experience.

    Erevo 2.0 is remarkably robust, but it's still a plastic car with a big motor. Sooner or later, physics will not be your friend.

    That being said, it's very fast and very fun. It also sounds like...

    Don't feel too bad about the body issues. Even the stock one has a reputation for getting ripped off the internal cage. Mine definitely did. If you have access to a 3d printer, you might be able to...

    I think you can adjust the steering servo end points to basically limit the rotation to the mechanically correct amount. Thus your problem might be solvable in software instead of hardware.

    I just looked up your servo. It's rated for 100 of travel. If the steering is designed for 90 that might be part of the issue too. I can't find the spec for the stock servo at the moment.

    Yeah... Acidic01 might be on the right track, see if this issue is just a side effect of trying to operate the steering without all the parts bolted together. You might also double check page 28 in...

    Is this a 1.0 or 2.0 erevo?

    It looks like the lever arm that connects to the toe links may be hitting the end stops. Hard to tell from the video, but that would explain why the center post...

    I'm trying to make sure I understand the issue you are describing, since steering has a lot of moving parts. Lol

    So are you saying that the servo is returning to center, but the wheels aren't?
