Hi, was using my xmaxx the other day and noticed a knocking noise when I turned hard left and after having a look I noticed the toe link is hitting the suspension arm on full lock turning left. I've tried adjusting the end points but not having much luck. Turning right isn't a problem. Hope someone will have some ideas what could be causing this also the toe link is fairly new

As you can see the toe link is hitting the suspension arm but when I turn it right the toe link seems to be lower than the suspension arm and a gap between them. It seems to be too high compared to the right side

It's kind of hard to see what's going on there, have you set your endpoints on your transmitter?
I looked at mine and there not close at all.

Maybe a video of the issue would be even more helpful but just taking a stab in the dark Id say something has to be out of alignment, bent, or broken.

That's what I'm guessing Grey because I looked at mine and I have lots of room.

I just looked at mine and there's a good gap on both sides. I'd say you just need to set your end points for the steering servo. Is your servo saver tight?

Found the issue,the screw has come all the way through on the servo saver making it sloppy. Is replacing it with stock the best way or are there any better options out there

Glad you found the issue. It looks a tiny bit chewed up on top. If it were me, I would replace it.

I would check Jenny's RC and just buy stock. I just noticed you are from the UK so Jenny's problably wouldn't be the best place to purchase it.

Oh yeah forgot to mention I'm from the UK,lol. I can get the complete servo saver assembly for about £14 compared to hot racing aluminium one for £55 so I think stock is the way to go as I can get three sets for the price of one aluminium one. Thanks again for the help and advice

replace it with stock and if it happens again Id replace it with an aftermarket aluminum one.

Well after swapping out the bellcrank assembly and adjusting the end points it seems the toe link is still touching the suspension arm on full turn that you can see in the pic, is this normal or am I worrying over nothing. The last pic shows it when the wheels are straight and there is plenty of space, I'm starting to think I'm worrying about nothing(hopefully)🤣
