Hi guys,

I have a problem with the steering wheel in the in car views suddenly turning on straightaways. This  causes the car to jump to the left or right on any track. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a dirty pot (potentiometer, like a volume control).  Rotate the wheel back and forth several times fairly rapidly, if this temporarily clears the erratic jumping, that's the problem.  Get a can of control cleaner (Radio Shack is easy source), take the cover off the wheel, find the pot and spray it liberally, rotating the wheel (if there is an opening on the pot where the terminals  are, spray directly into there; otherwise just douse the pot, especially around the shaft, enough cleaner should find its way in to do the job).  If the problems returns soon, the pot is probably bad and will need replacing.

Are you running an asymmetric setup?
