Default famous steering question

Whats up guys, took my virgin cc-01 pajero out into the world yesterday. I have upgraded every possible busing to bearings EXCEPT the steering. after taking her in a few water spots, some muddy the steering started slowly freezing up. Im assuming this is from the grainy sand stuck inside the steering shaft. If i upgrade to the gpm kit will it eliminate this issue? Im an axial guy, this truck is my first tamiya scaler, and i absolutely love it. Except for the fact that it wont turn lol steering is important in this hobby.

I would assume it would. You'd get rid of the friction of the internal steering shaft. If you plan to get muddy a lot, I'd pass on the 5x8 bearings that come in the kit and use metal bushings anda load of grease instead.

Also, if you want more steering, you can shave the lower arms and the knuckles.
