My Zip Zap SE's steering is broken! help!

about a year and a half ago, i had gotten a ryosuki initial D zip zap se from the source. (i think they were being discontinued). now, a little while ago, the steering went all out of whack. i found that if i take it apart, and re-center the steering, it fixes it. (for about three charges) and then it turns to the right again. if i turn it all the way to the left, it is only barely straight. i dont want to go onto ebay because i have no money and no paypal, and i want to know how to fix this. i have tried the steering balancer on the bottom, and it did absolutely NOTHING! can anyone help me?

I believe that particular ZZSE is an early model, and those had a heap of problems if I remember correctly.

I had this similar problem recently and found a tutorial over at BitPimps forum.
I had to install a new steering motor, but that's a worse case scenario.
You might just have to 'reset' it, which can be achieved through the ZZSE steering tutorial I mentioned above.
Might take a steady hand and some patience, but dig up a tutorial and open that ZZSE up!
