Are you using the lipo holders or tape?
I can't get near that, but I am using the lipo holders (prefer them as I know the battery will stay put)

Toshihiko Hara Posted this on Facebook last week.

"Thank you for checking new product of HPI/HotBodies.
The official name is "HB TCXX". The sample car of the photo is not official specifications. And the product is updated more more mooOOoore !!!
Please look forward to TCXX!!!!!
Funny name, could be why Exotek chose to split its chassis in two versions:
TCX-XS and TCX-XH!

Exotek, always a letter ahead!

Droop and ride height need to be considered together when making adjustments. It's one of the most common mistakes by new racers, who either use the droop screws to adjust ride height (completely wrong), or keep on adding ride height with the shock collars until the car is jacked up on its suspension with no droop and pre-loaded springs.
Oooohhh so that's what you mean. No offence or anything but I actually knew what you explained to me already. I got confused and thought you meant something else in the earlier post. But still, thanks alot tho But yea admittingly that's what I used to do

no track is the same. you can play with front 300k, 500k, putty. Rear 800,1k,1.2k. find what works for you.

I run 300k mixed with putty up front and 800 in the rear.

Haven't had a problem with tweek (yet!) but would like to get the weight down a bit

So might give it a try without the holder
