Default Springs

Has anyone had any experience with the atomic spring sets for this car? Are the any good or are they junk?

I would have to disagree. The first time out with this car it handled like a turd in this position and moving it 2 back (looser) put me in 1st place the second time I driven the car at a big indoor event. If you're comparing the T2 009 for example, the middle position is much looser on that car.

thanks for the advice! - I'd like to try that.

I run with sweep (0.5mm difference between front and rear) and also 3.5mm spacers on bump steer - improves steering no end - makes the car much more precise!!

In mod, if you run 2 spots looser in the rear, you will strip/snap rear belts frequently.

Default Setup help

Not sure what is happening but starting with the basic asphalt I'm getting a lot of neutral and on power oversteer. I have tried playing with the springs and shock positions to no success. Starting to wonder if I did something wrong with the build. My first X-ray but followed instructions quite close.
Any ideas what to possibly look for or try to improve be wise it's very nervous and undriveable especially at change of direction in technical areas.
Ps medium to low traction track.

what's the best servo that fits. would a full size servo be better for weight? I read that guys were using certain servos to help balance the car.

Best is often a matter of opinion and brand preference .. I use a full size Savox 1257TG for more weight on the radio side. I figure if I need more weight for balance I'll put that wegiht into a faster servo ~ 0.07 @ 6V. I still have plenty of room and still need to add more weight for balance. The Lipo's these days are getting heavier as their capacity increases.

I like using a low profile servo for the electronics space. I do however have lead weight on the electronics side of the car. The upside to that, is when adding lead I get to dictate where the weight goes on the chassis. You can't move the servo fore-aft...
