    I don't have your car in front of me, so I'll do the best I can under the circumstances. I would first set your car up as per the Traxxas owners manual. Personally, that's how mine is setup, and (IMO) it works very well. At the very least it's the best place to start from.

    Second, make sure your steering servo is setup right. Your servo horn should be almost perfectly vertical when your transmitters steering wheel is in center detent position.

    Next, look at your tires. If your tires are worn goofy (if you bought a used XO-1), or you started out with new wheels and you've drifted around your turns a lot; this can cause steering pull too. You can check this kind of wear by measuring the diameter of the inside and outside edges of your tires.

    If all that (above) looks good, that last thing to check is your steering linkage joints. They maybe wearing out in such a way as to cause you a pulling to the left or right problem.
    Life's to short to be a sour puss.

    Does your radio / receiver have Traxxas Stability Management (TSM)? If so, turn it up to about 50% and adjust from there. On the XO1, it really helps to keep the car run straight. Iíve also turned down my steering travel to 65%. This helps remove some of the twitchiness when attempting high speed runs.
