Standard servo is a little weak.

I'm using a Hitec 625MG servo. It does turn all the way left and right (on 2.2's) but not all that quickly. I'm generally satisfied with this servo over a standard Futaba S3003.

I would look for a servo with a bit more tourqe then the traxxas 1, use a servo with @ least 15kg of torque or more

I have a HiTec 5955 on the front of mine, it works OK, until you have a wheel bound up, then it wont turn it either. If you have the diffs locked, you are fighting all 4 wheels when you turn, with no differential action, the tires will have to scrub.

Chassis twist is completely normal- stiffer springs and/ or a different suspension setup may help. What are you doing with the truck exactly- planning on modding it into a crawler or just general bashing around? The 'arm-like things' are sway bars to reduce the tendency for the inner wheel to lift when turning.

Have some inspiration for mods...

thats if bashing is your thing, otherwise you have alot of reading to do on the subject of crawling- lots of threads with great info ( they wont read themselves )...
