Assembled EdTank with cannon on top. However, EdTank seems to have a hard time turning left and right. EdTank Basic (without Cannon on top) turns left and right without any issue. My Son thinks that this issue is caused by heavy load of cannon…. any advice/help is appreciated.

Just like many real tanks, the EdTank’s design means it will be slow to turn left or right. When the EdCreate tracks are brand new, they may be extra grippy, which will make the EdTank turn even slower. Your son is correct that the Cannon on top of the tank adds extra weight which will increase grip, causing the tank to turn even slower. You can reduce the grip by removing the tracks and lightly dusting them with talcum powder. Be sure to knock any excess powder off the tracks before putting them back onto the EdTank.
Please let me know if this advice helps in your situation. (Also note that the tread is likely to work without adding any powder as they wear in.)
