Too much rear traction.

JC, if it is the regular cooper or the L then it could the body dragging lightly on the inside rear tire. It could also be the diff being loaded too tightly. It will show up as a chatter on power. The diff cannot act independantly and acts as a spool.

Smile REAR SLIDING OUT

Are you using the rear toe in Uprights? Tamiya PNo 53345 Fit MO3 and TL-01. These come standard in the MO3-M. These will cause alittle bit of drag but settle the rear of the car down.

JC- Can also be caused by to little (or too much) droop relative to the piston and shock oil viscosity. Think grip-release-grip-release.

Smile REAR TOE IN UPRIGHTS 53345

HotrodHopkins,

These uprights make the rear end of the car more stable, however they also create abit of drag. I am using these presently on my car and they are very good for low traction tracks. Most people here in Oz use them.

Cheers
Calvin.
