what servo are you running?

do you have a power cap(capacitor)?

if you dont have a power cap, you most probalbly need one

that is because when you slam the throttle all the amppage goes to your motor and none to the sevo and so the servo would not keep striaght because of no electricity going to the servo(not enough electricity to the servo)

OK, that's a good suggestion, I will check. I'm pretty sure I'm ok with the spacers and shims. Its real wierd. And annoying - the rest of the car is super dialed, just this one problem.

Thanks

MIKE

longer wheel base or just a bit more grip in the front

I agree that you should try a longer wheelbase, but don't increase front grip. You want to try (IMHO) to stiffen the front springs, soften the rear, soften rear sway bar, more negative rear camber, increase rear toe-in, and finally increase front droop. Any of these things should help with being loose on-power.

but he said he spins out while he is on throttle comeing out of the turn

so wouldnt you want the front to straightn you out while accelerating

oh ya, a have to is more toe-in in the rear like what killing time said

sorry but what is "(IMHO)"

No, if he is spinning out while on the throttle, that means that there is not enough weight being transfered to the rear tires, hence the harder springs in front/softer in rear. Of the two possible problems he is having 1. not enough traction in the rear, 2. Too much traction in the front causing oversteer. No matter what he doesn't want more front bite.

btw- IMHO = in my humble opinion

oh i see(about IMHO)

but the way i think of it it is because too much traction in the back which would leave the rear to push the front into an angle and then spinning out

not tring to do a showdown of knowledge but...

If the rear had too much traction and forced the front at an angle, that's called a push. You'll lose steering but not spin out.
Refer to the XXXmain chassis set-up guide. What I had stated came straight from it (pg. 66).

Instead of droop screws, you put spacers INSIDE the shocks to limit their travel. Then set with a droop gauge. Problem is when you want to change droop, you must take all 4 shocks apart.
