Default Help!???

Hey guys! I'm running a hpi driftmister 15turn, with venom 3k ni battery
it works ok for drifting, but if I switch to racing tires it won't corner, looks like it has to much torq, the suspention is set up kind of tight, and tires r medium rubber, it might work better on carpet, but around here all we have is concrete! Any help would b apriciated, plus I don't have reverse wich I don't think matters, thanks

What you need to do is pick up that cup racer and bring it to the track this Friday! LOL

...yeah, there aren't many tracks around me either. I live in N. California. Closet track is about an hour from me.
For now I race (by myself) ...in a great parking lot. I found a parking lot that is pretty large, no concrete parking blocks ...and is super smoooth asphalt. Also appears that someone uses a blower to clean the lot during the week. ...yet would be nice to race against other people.

That's ok, there is a race almost every Friday from now till the end of March. So plenty of time to give two weeks notice to take a Friday off.

make sure the front drive cup still has teeth on the gear side. When they strip out, it makes the car very hard to drive, no matter what setup changes you make.

HTH.
