    You might have to set your servo at center (even if the servo horn is not centered) and than take the servo horn off and put it back on with it centered. This is what I do when my servos are out of whack and it seems to work fine.

    Do you have your trim turn all the way over to one side for you to drive straight?

    So if you turn your steering trim to the right, your wheels turn to the right, but turning the trim to the left, the wheels don't turn to the left?
    Driving the car, does it go straight when you let go of the steering? Or does it drift to the left or right?
    Say you have a car that drifts to the right, and you try to adjust it with the steering trim by turning it to the left but can't turn it enough, set the trim back to the middle. Take the screw out of the servo that holds the horn on, pull the horn off and turn it one spline over, in the dirrection to turn the wheels to the left, and put it back on and put the screw back in. Test drive it to see if you turned it the right way.
