Any chance you could share some of the changes you made? The way way you described your buggy out of the box was about identical to my experience.

I really like the stock wing but have ran the JC High Clearance wing but tends to be thin and rips easily. If you want maximum durability, try the Proline trifecta.

This wing is super thick but just looks big. I just think the stock wing is the best overall.

Few things were overlooked, since I didn't build it from a kit, I bought it used.

1) rear camber link was flipped so it was +2 mm with 3 mm shim LOL
2) leaned rear shock all the way in on tower
3) added 17 grams of weight up front , (running a shorty lightweight servo)
4) camber was a little off everywhere, now it's -1 at every corner. might increase the rear by .5
5) loosened slipper
6) fresh tires
7) using SXT tire sauce (this stuff is great)
8) running white front springs, green rears
9) I had front shocks angled all the way in on tower and the buggy had so much steering it would kick the rear end out, i put it back to middle hole.


Pretty much just need to keep driving it, get brake dialed in and add lightweight stuff to make it accelerate faster.

very happy now, i was about to throw it in the garbage.

it's easier to drive than my serpent but my Serpent has crazy amount of steering.

main problem was the rear camber link.


also running Fox shock bodies with Tin shaft, 1.4 front pistons 32 wt and 1.6 rear with 30 wt oil. both machined pistons.

Thanks much. It seems like my buggy's rear tires are locked to the track. Decent forward traction but almost too much lateral grip to really get it to rotate. I'll have to try the inner hole on the rear tower.

Thanks

Good starting spot is 24mm ride height and -1 degree camber front and rear. Then adjust from there depending on track and how you want it drive.

i think 23.25mm for the rear height is better.

Id like to see the math to average the "standard-deviation" (..or slop!) in setting .X accuracy.

I take some clear chassis protector and cut a piece to to cover the wing mounts....I just ran one for a month on my mod buggy...I would usually get a week out of them
