Do you have a digital servo ? Not all receivers are compatible with digital servos and this is how it reacts.

digital servos usually are in the 100$ price range.

Check you wiring and make sure non of the wires were pinched in the radio box, make sure your battery is fully charged, if you have a extra receiver try it and see if it still does it.

make sure there is no metal parts on the truck that are rubbing, I have seen this happen because a guy used the little green wire twist ties to hold his tank from vibrating *L*

can you set the endpoint for the left side only? if so try setting to stop just before the end maybe that will help

Hitech - JR Compatability?

I tried an HS645MG with my JR radio (RS300 receiver) in a savage and had the same problem.

Swapped it out for a JR Z650 and it worked fine.

It put the HS645MG in a T-Maxx with the stock receiver and it works great.

Is there some compatibility problem with the Hitech servos and the JR receivers?

I ran a 645MG with a JR RS310 for the longest time without any issues

I'd check the endpoints, also was the servo centred when you put the servo horn on?

You could also shoot Hitec an e-mail, it should be under warranty still if you've barely used it
