Also from your description, the suspension seems to be too soft for the grip level, so slightly thicker shock oil (up to 50wt front) and / or harder springs may improve things. Also, what 3x1.1 shock pistons do you use? Many pistons from other brands (Tamiya...) don't really fit, because they have a smaller diameter and thickness then the original ones. I did'nt see stabilizers in your setup, do you use any (you should)?

Glueing the edges of the front tires might also help.

yellow front white rear sway bars
losi pistons drilled out

I tried gluing the tires and all it did was kill turn in and I still flipped and it is traction rolling from center off and an inside front tire is off of the ground

I can not get the car to break traction eather be loose or push it is just glued to the track

Try a different piston. I felt better with the #2 pistons than I ever did with the 3x1.1. 42.5wt front, 40wt rear.

Car has gotten better and better but I'm still fighting traction rolls on fast corners, especially chicanes where the exit corner is sharp. Now when I change my driving style to fit what the car wants to do, the car feels pretty good. But I would like to be a bit more aggressive. Its only been my third raceday, and 2 more carpet races before the outdoor season starts.
We'll see what I end up with...

If they are legal at your track try some sorex blues. They are sweet! Worth .3 a lap at my track.

Im assuming your running 4deg castor too. Reduced castor will get you more turn in and should reduce traction roll

its the RSD like posted...but it takes some mod to make it work on the 6.2 you have to use longer screws and shims to get it to stay in place

not sure its worth having at this point...works great on 6.1's...but the battery doesn't line up center....took a couple of good licks today and it stayed in place but I don't hit as much as I used to...lol

However when you get yoir djc you will need to hog out your c hubs to allow them to clear while spinning. That is highly important I kept breaking c hubs and couldn't figure out why. That was the reason.

Tamiya ones fit. They are strong too. They will need the tamiya hex adapter though
