Any advice on how I can cure this problem? (Can't have the car jerking to one side everytime u throttle out of a corner... )

Appreciated
Is the diff OK? Is the servo saver loose?

The symptom is a steering problem, but I suspect steering isnt the cause.
Check your outdrives. I suspect that you dont have 'o' rings in the outdrives which allows them to move outward from the diff, disengaging the drive to one side momentarily..
I've seen it happen before and what you're describing is the exact symptom...

Furthermore, total 8 equipping 1050 ball bearings which are in the bearing of the wheel axle front and back, you held down drive loss. In addition, the 60D radial tire where tread pattern is cut was installed on actual car similar 11 these spoke wheels.
I'm jsut amazed the translating program can interpret double wishbone four wheel independant suspesion correctly, but calls the front wheels the "nosewheels"

lol go figure

I was under the impression it was just the lightweight bodyset and a standard 03M.

Tamiya USA has them listed on their site, but since they are moving buildings they won't be back online until the 12th. Those parts are pricy...almost better off buying the whole kit!

Are u running the newer Swift suspension or the original M03 suspension? What screw holes are stripping?

Is it from constantly taking the screws in and out or stripping in a collision?

More from collision. I really don't know which they are...I know the kit is an
M03M. I bought it off a local guy - so I didn't do the build myself. Any way to tell which it is?

The screw hole where the ball cup attaches to the knuckle for one, on the front suspension where the "upper" arm attaches to the shock tower, the screws into the C hubs....all over the place really. You think I should just rebuild the whole front end?
