Have you ever run into Common R/C Car Steering Problems? It can be incredibly frustrating when you’re trying to steer your car and it just won’t go where you want it to. Fortunately, there are some common issues that can cause this problem, and if you know what to look for, you can usually get your car back on track quickly.
Poor electronics connections
One of the most common issue is poor electronic connections. If the wiring between the motor and receiver isn’t connected properly, the car will not steer like it should. To check this, remove the body of the car and inspect all of the wiring between the transmitter and receiver. Make sure all connections are secure and tightly fitted.
Improperly tuned steering servo
Another possible cause of steering problems can be an improperly tuned steering servo. The servo is responsible for controlling the direction of your RC car and if it’s out of tune, it won’t turn as sharply or as fast as it should. To fix this issue, you’ll need to adjust the servo saver aboard the car. Make sure all settings are properly set to adjust your servo correctly.
Finally, slow transmitters are another common cause for steering issues with RC cars. If your transmitter is running at a low frequency or is operating on an outdated protocol such as FM or AM, it could lead to poor steering control with your car. To fix this issue, invest in a new transmitter with a faster frequency or one that uses modern protocols such as 2.4GHz for improved performance.
