    Just a thought, but, have you tried holding your Rusty in one hand, "accelerating" the vehicle work the other hand, and visually "inspecting" to see if you notice whatever is happening while it's happening?

    I have held it up in my hand under acceleration and the wheels will wander .

    When doing so, visually inspect not just the wheels, but inside. Check the servo saver, the servo, the steering turnbuckles, etc. Just looking at the wheels rattling isn't going to help determine where the problem is occurring...you need to visually check every part that makes up the entire front-end of the drivetrain.

    Turn down or off TSM if equipped.

    If "resolving" the problem was that simple, I have a question. Does this mean that the TSM is 'defective'. Interested in knowing/understanding, in case my step-dad's 2WD Slash every had the same problem.
