Yeah his car was railed. He won in stock but bobbled in 19t a few times that cost him the win to Noah. I'll bring some glue. You bringing the beats?

Any idea how to make rear more planted? I did lots of testing yesterday but my car is still very nervous mid-corner..Anti dive helped a lot but I want to try something..On-power handling is excellent..

are you using a spool, diff, or a oneway? We would pretty much need to know what set up you are currently running in order to make helpful suggestions. Also what body are you using? Switching bodies helped me out a great deal when I needed the rear end planted.

Take the balls out of the front diff and using something like header card stock from parts bags, cut out the shape of a diff ring and put the diff back together and tighten it down. You may want to lock it down and back it off 1/8 of a turn so there's a little give incase of a heavy impact.

Glue the rings to the header card first, then cut away the rest

Yeah, with my Losi I did the ol sandpaper trick. Can I do that, or is it better to just glue the whole thing together?

Oh, also is the rear stock shock tower the same as the carpet tower that all you guys are using in the front, or is it a different part #? Didn't see any carpet towers on the web site.
