if your spinning out on power i would add more front droop to transfer more weight to the rear of the car ,also blue rear springs could help too.

Thanks 303 will look at that too this weekend!

Anyone have a spring chart that shows the HPI/HB to Tamiya equivalents or there abouts as I only have Tamiya spring sets?

The suggestion above is for the Blue Pro 4 (15.3) springs.

I have a chart I made with as many brands as I could find. HPI/HB, AE, Tamiya, Yokomo, Schumacher, Xray. Currently it is in excell, but I can turn it into a pdf to share when I get home from work. If anyone is interested in it just shoot me a PM.

Yeah thanks I noticed that. I have a chart for the HPI springs and saw that it was a little softer than the silver. Just wanted to see how it compared to the Tamiya's as I have a couple of sets that I can use instead of buying HPI ones.

Cheers

In technical terms how does dropping the inside rear camber link height effect the rear from breaking away?


BTW I am already running the kit 3 degree rear toe block.
Dropping the camber links will give you more camber gain through the corners as your car leans there will be more contact patch on the tire. If you haven't already tried to increase the rear camber to 2* that should help as well. As stated more front droop will help as well.

Thanks for the explanation dude!

I am running a fraction off 2* all round....probably 1.95

Will try move to 2* exactly and see from there then will try the rest of the suggestions.

From what I understand , it makes that end of the car roll deeper into the corner, generating more grip.
Have you taken the rear top deck screws out to allow more flex ? You could try this if all else fails......

Default spur gear

I need a 94t spur gear. What brand and part number will fit? I tried a Precision Racing and the holes did not line up. Thanks so much.

I'm using the robitronic gears, they got holes in it, so no problem with the screws of the motor.
