Yes it is Chuck's car. After seeing the VBC run and driving it I think he's parking it and building the VBC.

Hey old dude. What gearing set up are you going with? I am useing the stock spur gear that came with the kit. That is an 95t. For my pinion gear I am using 32t. My ratio is 2.96. The motor I am using is an Tekin redline 21.5RPM

(1) Try softer front springs
(2) Remove a shim or both and use longer softer or medium springs
(3) More front tire sauce
(4) Stiffer center shock spring and or stiffer oil
(5) Raise the center shock at rear pivot aprox 3mm or lower front pivot 3mm
(6) More front toe out (only 1/2 deg.)
(7) Try Tamiya Ferrari front wing
(8) Maybe try a little more drag break in your radio, but not too much
(9) Try softer side springs

Only try one change at a time until you are happy. Remember, some of these changes may effect how the rear end reacts. Good luck.

My car came with a 96t spur and I ran a 36t pinion, Shurspeed 21.5 and 2.50" dia tires (Pardus spec).

I now need a new rear axle. That is what I get for running too hard on a 1/18 scale road course with a 1/10 scale car and open wheels. I hope the spares get in the states soon. Mean while I ordered a F104 rear axle and diff since the axle dia is the same. I just hope that the offset is similar.
