Check to see if your servo horn is tight. Sounds like it is either loose or you may have stripped it.

Sounds like servo arm is stripped. Snag an aluminum one and you will be good to go.

My RTR had a crap servo horn out of the box too. Pull the servo horn off, check it out, and put it back together. When you do that make sure you turn everything on and center the steering servo with 0 trim. Then when you put it on you'll need to center it back because you're always a half a spline off

Servo horn is the plastic arm that connects the servo gear to the steering linkage. The servo is the little box bolted to your front axle that makes the noise when you turn. The plastic teeth in the horn often strip so the servo just spins inside of it instead of moving the arm left to right

Since it's stripped, then yes, get a new one so you can turn. I would recommend an aluminum clamping type servo arm/horn. I usually use one made by GHRacing (AKA, Golden Horizons Racing). You need to see the "spline count" to get the correct one though.
