    Teton steering problem

    Hello,

    I am a newbie and i am having a problem with the steering of my Teton.
    The problem is that from the moment i power on the EMC, the steering servo turns heavy left. Even without remote input and with the trim at zero. I do not seems to have any bending or broken stuff in the steering mechanical arms.
    When i power the EMC off, i can move the servo arm back in "center", however, power on EMC -> again heavy left. Basically the car only turns left, when i turn right, the servo still moves, but then the cars runs straight at best.
    Basicallly, the center point of the servo is messed up.
    How i recalibrate/reset the center point ?
    Second, can i also adjust the turning sensitivity ? before it was broken, i also found that the steering was very sensitive to steering input, i wanted too lower this a little also.

    Any help appreciated.

    This is a common issue. Contact Traxxas support they'll send a rebuild kit. Then it will break again. Upgrade to 2065x and save yourself multiple rebuilds. The shocks will go next. They are a bit pricey to upgrade. My $130 truck is now up to about $200 in fix/upgrades. Awesome truck it so much I bought the pre runer! Have fun!
