Help Please
I have a problem on a very bumpy track where my car bounces a lot more than other guys running the same exact setup on their Pro4's. I have tried softening the rear spring but that just exaggerates the problem. I have also gone thinner on the shock oil. Any suggestions please

How long has it been since you rebuilt your shocks (new shafts, bladders, foam spacers, orings, plastic spacers)?

if you need more room for electronics...
add 2mm servo spacer between the servo ears and mount.
that's what I did on mine...

Scott, for the monster stock I am running 24-25 tooth pinion with a 75 spur gear, my tires are about 58-60 mm though so pretty small. With the P2K and taller tires I would start out at 25-26 and adjust from there.

Hey rc-zombies,
Remember me from back in the Pro3 days? Anyway I'm back for more but with the Pro4 now in the stall. My question is do you have experience with the 2, 2.5, or 3mm chassis? I have a 3mm on my car and wanted to lighten it up for 19turn asphalt racing. I know the consensus is that thinner chassis generally works better on asphalt but I wanted to get your take before I swap out the 3mm.

Best

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...
