    Hey guy's! I played with my Savage Flux today and noticed my steering is off. Sometimes it will just veer off right without touching the control. It twitch's sometimes to. I have to adjust my steering rate just to make it turn full right, and left. Is my servo shot?

    Battery in truck fully charged? Also check and see if your servo horn is ok If so your servo might be bad I just changed mine cause it took a dump on me.

    Yes the batteries were fully charged and I just checked the horn, all seems good. I think I'll order a new servo. Should I go stock or upgrade?

    I would definitely upgrade. Now everyone has there preference on what servo brand to go with torque speed etc. I went with savox sw-1210 sg like it so far haven't drove the truck with it yet. Just tested it sitting still

    It just plugs into channel 3 on your receiver.

    I have another question. When I turned my flux on the steering wouldn't go all the way left or right. So I had to adjust the steering rate to make it go all the way. Now the steering is to touchy and it sometimes twitches to the right. I know I already ordered the servo but do u think that's the problem?

    What did u order. The Savox 1210 is better then stock but I bet the 1270 is even better but not waterproof,,,only reason I went with the 1210. The extra 100oz of power would be better to turn a 40 series tire.
