    1/16 scale e revo vxl steering troubles

    Today i replaced the gears in my traxxas 2080 servo because they were stripped. Now when i turn on the radio and turn on the truck, the steering locks to the left and wont budge. I dont know why this is happening because i can turn the wheels when the truck is turned off. I am new to the hobby and have never done this before so any help is appreciated. Thanks

    Did you center the servo before installing the horn?

    With servo horn off and steering link removed. Center steering trim on transmitter. The turn tx on. Then turn car on. Servo will then center itself. Now put the horn back on, and then the link.

    You should be good to go now.

    Not positive on what you mean here.

    The servo wire should go into ch1 of the receiver (Rx). The wire connector should have a tab on it so it will only go in one way.

    But some servos don't have the tab. Can look at the esc wire in channel 2 and make it so servo wires colors match the esc. ( Some servos have a wire or two a different color, look to have black match)

    If not connected right servo won't work in most cases.

    Some servos are also reversed from stock.

    depending on how you installed the servo it may need to be turned 180*

    If reversed, reprogram the tx (see owners manual ). Or by using the blue tooth module app. To reverse the servo. ( By reversed I mean when on tx you turn right but the wheels turned left on the car... )
