Steering servo

How do you recenter the steering servo? I have full radius steering, but the Tx steering trim needs to be all the way right for it to almost have straight steering. I tried a different Tx, but it has the same issue.

Is it possible to change the steering trim on the Tx? Could it be a PCB issue? It is very smooth, so I would think the pot is fine. Is this an issue when I should shim it? It is crazy that I have full steering, very smooth, but the trim is so far off that it is hard to drive even at full right trim.

Please help!

Towards the top front of the chassis is a hole on top. You have to remove the top piece that connects the front suspension. Then use a small flat tip to center the car.

Here's how I do it.
Center the transmitter.
Center the chassis to track as straight as possible. Run the car forward and back adjusting as neccessary.
Make any small adjustments after with the transmitter.
