    Well wheels will not turn... If it is the gears stripped you will hear the servo spinning like crazy non stop

    Per Traxxas instructions, do not adjust steering trim with tsm on. Make sure tsm is completely off before making steering trim adjustments. Also, I've noticed that tsm can kinda slow the steering action down and it has a dead spot (chronicled in my very first run with the erevo 2.0). Bottom line, if the servo is still responding to inputs, its a software issue and not a hardware issue. Happy hunting, and remember, keep having fun!

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

    Turn off tsm.

    I don't remember if you changed servo... Or moved servo horn.

    If you have link app. Turn off tsm in drive effects and make sure tsm knob on tx is all the way left. Make sure steering trim is centered.


    Make sure steering sensitivity is 100%. On link app

    Then check your end points.

    If at any time you adjusted end points with tsm on you may of killed servo.

    I would then see if servo horn needed aligned on the servo.

    Not to hijack this thread, but, I just installed my savox 1212sw servo. And I've never heard of setting endpoints before. How do I do that, and is it necessary with every servo? Or just certain ones?

    If you have the bluetooth module and the Traxxas app super easy to do in your settings. I highly recommend it on all servos when installed and set up. It prevents the servo from trying to drive past the mechanical end of your steering. Thus it will extend the life of your servo. Ill look and see if you can do it without the app and let you know...hold plz...

    Ok checked and you can for sure do it without the app. Google the manual for the transmitter you have and there is a sequence to follow to do it, last page. In my opinion...just get the bluetooth and the app...way easier and you can always update your trucks software too!
