[QUOTE=Skeeter36;13560867]This wheeler just does not suit my driving style. Great car, just not for me[/QUO

Can u give more detail about the car not suiting your driving style. I drove one and it felt perfect for me, but that was the first and only 1/10 wheeler ive ever driven.

They were 3Racing ones ... are you based in HK?

Also they're not the only ones using a .050 hex. I bought a .050 hex anyways ...

Well i personally am not much of a point and shoot driver i prefer to drive a lil smoother and this car is fast no doubt. I just didnt like the way I had to drive it to be fast.. I still won the A at my club race I just didnt like how it felt like I had to really muscle the car to be smooth

And the shocks seem to have a ton of up travel and mine were stiff. Like i said this is a very fast car I just dont feel real comfortable with how it has to be driven.

Ok, I have a couple ideas of things I want to try. But what do you think would be a good change for high bite with ruts. My only issue is in the 180s and some 90s. The rear wheel will catch a rut and send me flipping. This normally becomes an issue when traction drops a little and the rear developed some slide. So it is basically a slide catch flip.

And since this car likes to drive with the front so much, a rear tire with a little less side bite might help

Year. I am on clay slicks now. I have not tried a soft compound. I am thinking black rear sway and more camber. Mayber lower the rear link to make the rear driver flatter.

You could bring in the upper rear shock one hole

Now I know there been people talking about the shock cap coming off. Are you guys talking about the top one? I'm noticing that my spring collars (bottom)is coming off not completely but enough to change the way the buggy drives. But I am using the collars that have the mud gard and i haven't try the other ones Has any one else had this problem.

Mine off off a couple times a day. Now that you mention it, it seems to be mostly on the ones with guards. I put the guard on the front last week and now they pop off much more.

Skeeter how much for your roller?
I drove one at my track and love it compared to my fall apart b44.2 and have been waiting on my back order now for 3 plus months!
