Hello ,

I have assembled the steering assembly without issue. However there is a lot of friction in the system. As soon as I try to turn the steering via the servo lever, there servo saver pops up and the steering doesn't turn. I was thinking about replacing all of the screws (servo saver and both front axels) with M3 shoulder bolts and just having nuts on the bottom face. Not the prettiest solution, but might cut the friction down. Before i do that, do you have any other recommendations? The friction seems to be coming from the linkage between the servo save and one of the front wheel hubs. One of the steering pushpins is bent upward due to the offset in attaching to the servo saver. Hope you know what i am referring to...
