    Ya they should , your a customer to them and they want to keep you as one so I would think the faster they get your part back to you the faster youll be happy w/ HPI and purchase more product from them. Let me no what they come up with.

    Check batteries, next make sure that servo horn is secure to the servo if that does not work take servo out and put one in from your traxxas and see if that works . That'll tell if the servo is the problem or not. Steering not binding is it ?

    i know its not batteries because my brakes still work fine and that is a major clue that you battery is low when ur brakes, and srry but i dont know where the servo horn is, and i dont know what you mean by saying the steering might be binding

    okay take a look at that plastic piece that sits on your servo. Is it tight? Binding, look up underneath were your steering components are move the wheels back and fourth best to disconnect the servo before doing it. Making your brake calipers go in and out doesnt mean anything , It takes more juice to power those wheels back and fourth. Your running 3 servos off what 4 batteries @ 1.5volts that does nt last long in a MT, RED

    Hey first off dont be so hard on yourself man ,your learning just like the rest of us. As far as the servo goes I'd just purchase a new high torque servo ,not high speed , get digital also. HItec makes good servos Ipersonally use 3 of them ,they have metal gears dont have the numbers in front of me but you could look at there site and get all the info. on which one well work for you. Take your time with it ,it'll all work out in the long run , RED

    Rustler try this one 5645mg Hi Torque from Hitec. About 55.bux has about 168oz of torque put in place of your steering servo and put the steering in for throttle and brake.

    If everything is working the right way for example, your new servo, linkages are right, i'd take a good look at crystals ,rx. Are you sure that you centered your servo correctly? RED

    Super torque servos work wonders, that truck should turn on a dime. Now are you using your savage radio or the traxxas stuff. RED
