I've a hyper8 buggy. When I steer left or right my tires does not come back to neutral. There isn't any problem with my servo it comes to neutral when I left steering but the tires don't. I realized that my servo horn have a slackness. What should I do?
Sorry for my horrible english. I write you from Turkey

How tight is your servo saver?

Have you taken the horn off the servo to see if it is striped, or possibly even the wrong spline for your servo? While the horn is off, check the steering for bind or slop.

The servo horn is not stripped. I checked the steering without servo and there is no binding but a little slop. After steering the tires don't come to neutral but after I give a little countersteer they come to neutral. What do you mean by "the wrong spline for your servo" ? sorry my english is not well. BTW my servo is hitec 645mg and ı use ıt's original servo horn.
I bought that chassis used. All the servo saver and it's bushings are greased. Is it right or should I clean the grease?

might be a stripped gear inside of the servo which may be the cause of the slop try another servo and see if that will help just make sure its a least 200oz of torque for the rigors of bashing or racing .you might find a replacement gear set for the servo but i would let someone at the hobby shop or a experienced racer help with the swap

I agree with Bill. Further, I'd axe the bushings. Bearings are the only way to go. Exposed greased parts are dirt magnets.
