-that is a sweet 240z. I like the bike and rack on top... ....funny I am doing something similar to my 911 RSR, -added a driver, custom exhaust, dash board, etc... (photos to come once it's complete).

Your down in the San Jose area? -Sheldon's Hobbies, ..I remember that place from the '80s. I used to go there when I had my first R/C Hornet! I may have to stop by and race my CR'r there or my Crawler next time I visit my parents (they still live in SJ).

Ride height too low?
Not enough rear camber?
Rear diff is bound up?
Tires glued to the rim properly?
Suspension bound up?
Bad bearings?
Bound up dog bones?

Can be so many things...

Post your complete set up. Give us an idea what you have the car settings at. Maybe post pics of the car no body or a video of the car running. Pics are worth 1000 bonus points

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

Show us pics of the front and tell us what you settings are, especially the front since you have off power problems.
