I moved the rear camber link out on the hub which seemed to help...but it still breaks loose at times. And when it goes...it goes quick and stuff the nose right into a pipe before you can do a thing..no talking her out of it.

Running 17.5 turn motor, stock setup except for the rear link and I'm running the 3 gear transmission included in the champions edition. Running the same tires 90% of the guys at this track run...

Otherwise I've been really happy with the car.
Great suggestions so far. I would also try installing the B5 rear arms to get the rear hubs even farther forward. Remember.. Left arm goes on right side, right arm goes on left side of car.

Have you checked ride height?

One thing I know should help is

Batt position,

Rear hubs full forward,

More toe but avoid if you can

Buy the 3 x 1.4 pistons and run 27.5 oil with green springs.

You may want to rebuild front shocks too , maybe too much weight transfer.

I'm going to move the hubs forward to see what that does and I'm going to have a softer rear spring on hand.

If your track is med grip with big jumps go with 23mm to 24mm . Most guys that run this buggy at my track run that . Me i liked 23mm better mostly cause he can drive harder , but 24mm will give you the more grip/body roll for the 3 gear .

It really depends on the layout and jumps of the track but at clubhouse here in MI which is med high smooth clay and layout changes all the time but usually I run 23-24mm. You don't want to bottom out but you also want to be as close to the ground as possible without bottoming out

[QUOTE=Socket;14409815]It took 10 years to get from the B4 to the B5 - and you guys think a B6 will come within 2 of the B5? /QUOTE]

No B6, only having fun, maybe hard to get the sarcasm in text.

I'm brand new to racing and having the same issues with the rear kicking out suddenly on my CE kit on indoor clay. I wasn't sure if it was the buggy or my driving, but other guys seem to be able to plant the rear coming out of corners much better than my car will. Watching this discussion with interest. I'll try moving my rear hubs forward and switching to 27.5 oil in the rear.

I run the B5 rear arms w/ right side on left and left on right on mine as well and have the rear hubs forward.

I run a high bite clay track with not to many bumps or big jumps so i run my height at 19mm front and 18mm rear. Keeps me from getting traction rolls. Oil i run is 35 front and 32.5 rear with Blue springs front and green rear

You run the rear motor b5 rear arms and swap them. It moves the rear hub a few mm forward than the mid motor are capable of. This puts more weight over the rear axles. This is the stock setup on the lite kit and what most people are running from what ive seen.

Also... there is a totally separate thread but since we're talking about rear traction in here... im considering going back to the 4 gear, unless someone can really sell me on the 3. I mean there is a reason that's the box setup. I ran the 4 initialy and decided to try the 3 because I read it may make a stock motor a little quicker... but I noticed next to no difference.

The only thing that makes me think... is I see like 90% of the associated guys at my track running the 3 gear...

So you want to put the 4 gear in because of the box setup?......But you cant tell the difference anyway?
