This is the worst handling car I've ever run. Am I missing something ?
Super soft rear setup for max grip on asphalt, start changing stuff back if too grippy.
Soft spring, 15 to 20w oil, 3 hole piston, softest T plate with screw removed or backed out about 2 turns from touching o ring, 2000 diff lube or dry damper, perfect condition and loosest diff without letting it slip.
Black springs up front with kit setting on ride height.
OR JUST GET THE CRAP TAMIYA TIRES OFF OF IT.
Pit Shimizu 571 and 572 will fix most of your problem.
Don't worry about the description i.e. "Hard" rears. They are super grippy, hard must describe the sidewalls or something.
These mount on Tamiya's Foam type rims!
