Exclamation Found Steering Problem You Should All Look At This!!!

As you guys have probably noticed now I've had steering problems with my r/c. The two most common things you said were "take it apart" or "all of them can't steer right". So at a closer examination of my R/c revealed something. I flipped over my r/c and looked at it with a big magnifying glass and to my surprise found MICROSCOPIC metal pieces smaller than a flea. And I noticed they sat on one side of the front pulling the steering magnet towards them therfore making my car drive only to the left. After several minutes trying to remove them with some tweezers I found my car could properly turn as if it had just came out of the box. I hope this helps those of you who are having a similar problem!

ive posted this a million times.

glue a magnet to the tip of your antenna. you will always have something to suck the metal off(much better than spending all day using tweezers).


no it does not effect range at all in any way

you could glue a magnet to anything but you always have a controller in your hand when running your bits so why not put the magnet there so you dont have to carry tweezers around?

You could also put a small piece of tape over the bottom of the car, and take it off when there is lots on there.

That might work. But imagine for those of you with rare earth magnets that must be a B!TCH trying to get off those little shavings

no. you just put the magnetic tipped antenna about 1/4in away from the car and all the stuff just jumps right off. rare earth, ceramic whatever it jumps right off the car.

why would i post a solution over and over if it was bs?
