It's that bad, I race on a tight clay indoor track but I looked over the setup and nothing seems unusual about it. I have kit springs, full size battery all the way forward, new tires(scrubs mc), it's not binding anywhere, I'm stumped. Just wondering if there was something obvious about these that I might be overlooking or maybe somebody else has had this problem? It seems like a bigger problem than a simple spring or oil change.
Ask around and see if someone will let you borrow a shorty pack to try out- that was the single biggest change we made to balance the car. It has a significant amount of rear weight as a roller, so moving the shorty forward gives a better front/rear balance in RM configuration. Also, the kit front springs are too hard and the kit rear springs are too soft IMO. Try black front and dk green rear. My brother's car pushed like a dump truck when we ran a full size pack, even all the way up against the servo.

How about the rear camber link mounts, has anyone found an alternative or fix for the broken mounts? I know RC Shox has a temporary fix, but is there a mount that completely replaces the stock mounts so you don't have to go through the hassle of changing gearboxes?

The rcshox isnt temporary It works just as well as the treysrey. I have been running the v2 for several months with no problem whatsoever.

Anyone have a part number other than the manuel for the Diff nut and spring for the ball diff? Or an alternative that works?

Thanks

Tresrey parts are top notch, and Konich runs a tight ship there, and I am impressed every order. I ran my 210 today, and it was really good, on pace with the leaders. Minus a misfortune or two, would have been right there..Felt really good..

I have the rear camber link brace, looks really good, and shipping to Cali was super fast. Waiting for my gearbox to break before I put it on.
