Default Spin out issue (left turn only)

Hi,

Wondering if anyone has had this problem.

When turning right, my car works fine. Turning left will send my car into a spin out (losing rear traction).

I have done numerous things to troubleshoot, but have yet to solve it. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
AJ

bent hinge pins.
screw sticking out of the bottom

90% of my tweak issues have been the chassis not being flat, unglued tire or bent hinge pin

Some Lunsford titanium hinge pins should take care of bent hinge pins and lighten the car a bit at the same time.

Don't need the turnbuckles if you have the TC5f or TC5r as they come with titanium ones already.

The FT, TC5r and TC5f all use the same black steel hinge pins, they are not titanium.

I never said the TC5 hinge pins were titanium. I said the turnbuckles were. When getting the Lunsford titanium parts for the TC5r or TC5f all you need are the hinge pins. The link I provided was for Titanium hings pins, titanium turnbuckles and a kit with both of them.

I used titanium hinge pins in my 1/10 buggy in the past. They still bend. Don't waste your money. Try finding drill blanks with the same diameter and cut them.

Looks like a set of Greigs rear bulkheads under the lid.

That is very impressive.
