Again thanks for info guys. I beat her at the bmx track and had no problems but yesterday at home just playing in my back yard the steering just died. Thought it was my battery being low so recharged the system but still no luck. It just keeps going in a left hand circle. I have been going through threads trying to figure out. Thought I read it in a thread that the dreaded left hand cirle thing means my steering servo is dead. Is that possible already? Truck is 4 days old now. Man I was just burning laps to get used to steering at high speeds when it died. Wasn`t being hard on it then. I know I should upgrade but man it hurts just being 4 days into it. Does hpi warranty something like that?

you proably got it wet, check the servo in a difrent plug, for example, plug the stearing servo in the throttle and see if you get the sme problem. if your stearing servo acts the same whenpluged in the throttle port, then you know for sure its your servo and not your recever, also you might want to check and make sure there is noting stoping it from turning to the right. also if you find that it is your servo, befoer you through it away, take it apart and make sure the gears are fine

servos do not like water, there are ways to protect your servos from water...

All the new savage 25's come with the cam type steering servo saver. When it gets too dirty it can bind and your servo is gonna pay the price. It is a good idea to check it before every run. Occasionally you should clean and lube it .
