I might be wrong but over here we are running on dirt also.. Brass weight for the FF/FR is a good tuning tool to get more traction for the rear, maybe you can try to toe in more?.. We are running 3.5-4 degrees rear toe in for super loose dirt traction and the car seem more stable..
Do give it a try..no harm done ya??..
Cheers!!

I'm willing to give it a try. However can't seem to find those parts, here on the states. Could you send me a link to it or possibly the item number? Thanks a ton.

Getting slower meaning what??? Going off what you posted I assume you are looking for more rear traction. If this is the case change your rear spring from Kyosho white to Kyosho pink. Is the car not carrying speed through the corners for you or is forward bite lacking? I'm sure we can get you where you need to be with a change or two. Also....are you running a gear diff or ball diff? This makes a huge difference on loose surfaces IMO.

Sorry if this has been discussed like a dead horse but what are you guys doing to get rid of the flat land bounce? Are you guys running machined pistons to get more pack? (And if so what size to purchase) My phone won't allow me to search the thread so again sorry for the question

A tip on using the search function on the forums on your phone, tap search then tap advanced search then you should be able to use the search function. If you try to tap in the search box to type in what your looking for the box dissappears, if you tap advanced search it will take you to another screen that will let you search. Works for me so hopefully it works for you.

Missing the landing transition? One thing is to time the landing and getting back on the throttle soon as it lands. Or hit the break iin the air and hit the landing transition. Bouncing means the car is not maintaining its forward momentum when it lands.

We run the same track, for better or worse, there will be flat landings (and he's the track layout designer/jump builder... )

Joey - You need the machined pistons. If you can't go back a page on your phone, my setup for our track in on PetitRC now as well. As mentioned above, you also want to land kinda slightly on-power; there's no belt to wear out by doing that on this car.

Hey ryan Thank you for the "advanced search" advice... got it now.

Machined pistons got it. I'll talk more about it on Tuesday.

And that's why I have designed the new jumps for the track. I'll have the new one ready for our next race.

Are you shocked I switched cars mark?

The world is shocked that someone tore you away from your beloved shumachers.

Thanks for replying back guys, I did change to Kyosho pinks in the rear and moved the bottom shock inward as well. I installed the ball diff. I'm looking for more forward bite. There's only about two or three others at my local track that run the yoks and from what I've seen they all are adding (and not kidding) 100 + grams to the car.

Moving the shock to the rear of the arm should help with forward bite as well.

So got a quick response back from Rocket Rc and the brass fr and rr holders are 11 and 13 grams. Sounds like a good direction to go since they are putting weight right over the rear arms. I'm also moving the shins on rear to the back this moving the hub more forward hopefully helping in getting more forward bite
