Elijah, are you on carpet or asphalt? What tires are you running? Are you using the sway bars? Is the car a 416 or a 416WE? Are you using the short arms or the long arms? What issue are you having, in what part of the corner? Are you running Lipo or Nimh? What class of motor 17.5, 13.5 or mod?

Make sure your in position 3 for both the front and rear inner camber links and for the rear hub in position 2.
Put a soft rear bar in, take out the .5mm rear wheel spacer and move the upper shock position of the rear shock to 3 or 2, also try 40 weight oil front and back.
Loosen your read diff just a little.

Does the car roll excessively ? How does the chassis look ? Are all the shocks ok , do they need to be rebuilt ? I am guessing you rebuilt the shocks when following the suggestions from Johnny W. Have you tried a different set of tires. Is the diff notchy , does it need a rebuild ?

What kind of tires ?

No, clean, rebuild every other run they leak, yes to the tires, rebuild the diff also, I tried several different setup to get the rear stable but no success.

Well, I have only known the Tamiya shocks to leak when they are very worn out or are built incorrectly. Not saying that is your problem, but it sure does need to be resolved.

What kind of tires ? Some tires like less camber.

BTW, the reason I asked you if the chassis is rubbing excessively, if the car is squatting too much under hard acceleration, from a near standstill, maybe you need to go stiffer in the rear.

I am using Jaco Blue, the kit is New so for shocks wear I doubt that would be the cause.
