    Steering setup issue Slash VXL 2wd

    I'm having an issue where the wheels turn hard left as soon as the truck connects to the TX. I've reset the TX and switched TX's, so I don't think it's a receiver trim issue. Throttle works correctly, wiring is OK, battery is OK. I've searched quite a bit but can't seem to isolate the problem.

    I made a video of the issue:

    Did you try to rebind the radio to the receiver?

    This! I'll add, it looks like your tsm is at 50%. Turn off tsm, center trim. Turn off truck, disconnect servo saver. Turn on truck, center wheels and reattach servo saver. Also, I've had servos go bad that once power is applied the go full lock. Start with disconnecting the servo saver

    it's alright son, I'll fix it
    Its alright son I'll fix it when you break it

    Turned off TSM, disconnected steering from servo, centered trim on TX, turned truck on, and the servo has no "left". If I turn the control wheel right, the servo turns, but if I turn it left it doesn't move. It seems to know that it's full left, it doesn't think that it's centered.

    Think I should replace the servo?

    Did you try to rebind the receiver and the radio as well?

    I've had to rebind the receiver a couple times while I was troubleshooting. The servo seems to show the same behavior with two different radios. I'll try again just to be sure.
