  4. Its an interesting phenomenon, I had a servo issue. I took the bottom and top casing off. With that removal, when i hooked up the power, the servo just spun and spun. I then adjusted the trim to stop the servo from spinning. the point being that if i hadnt taken the servo apart, and then hooked it up while it was apart i would never had known the servo was "under load" the entire time. So by adjusting the trim by looking at the physical gears inside the servo i found that to be an incredibly interesting find. as i have always wondered and tried to adjust the steering, perhaps this is a piece of the puzzle
  5. good luck with Tamiya parts support. Fun thread though.
  6. @Busdriver hear ya. Just some of the stretch on the mold are really really thin
  7. @Busdriver I hear ya. However im thinking stability of the shell
  8. Ok so as i have explored this more. I cant reverse the gear due to the stops on the big gear. So i grabbed another servo,Brand new, and opened it up. I again plugged it into the car and powered up. This servo is adjusted LEFT 21 in order to stop the constant rotation.
  9. Ok so i was having issues with a servo used in a buggy. I first thought that the steering arms and part could be cathing on somthing or binding. So as its an inexpensive servo i took it apart after realizing it was def the servo. There were broken teeth on inside. As its a steering servo i rotated the gears 180 and hooked it back up to the car with out the top and bottom of the case reinstalled. What i noticed was that when the reciever and car were turned on the servo was spinning or constantly running. I grabbed the controller and went into the trim and adjusted it until the servo stopped running and was still. I had to adjust to LEFT 31. im trying to understand what im dealing with. Meaning, if i hadent taken the servo apart or saw this does that mean that the servo constantly was pushing in on direction? Hmmm
