You could decrease the front camber, or put softer springs on the rear.

The under drive gearing is used in the rear for a low traction conditions.

Reducing the diameter of the rear sway bar could help as well ? Let's say from stock 2.7mm to 2.4/2.5mm ?

Thx

Could you please tell me what to do to mitigate the problem ?

I have the default box setup

Thanks in advance

You won't like my answer, but I'll give it anyway:
Slower on the throttle out of the turn. Don't punch it hard, roll into the throttle starting mid corner & getting to full throttle by the time you get to track out.

If you don't want to spend the time & effort to learn throttle control, try going up on the rear dif oil, then down in the center, then down the front. Each of these will put more power to the rear wheels. The under drive everyone is talking about will have a similar effect as well.

One other thing to try would be less caster, but that will make the buggy more twitchy on turn in off power & give you more mid corner push.

What batteries if everybody running? I ran 6500 smc batteries last year in it and the weight was 70g heavier on the battery side. This year I'm going to try 2 shorty packs as some of the pro drivers have been running them in electric buggy. I weighed mine out and the weight perfect in the front and only off by 30g in the rear.

I run the m2c weights. I'm using 42grams on the rear and it helped the rear traction greatly on corner exits.

I suspect he painted an optional carbon fiber or auuminum plate.
