I kinda need some adivse on what to change next on my Losi 8 B for performance. My problem is the back end. I cannot seem to get it tight and feels really loose in the back.

I am having a problem on the turns and getting it squared up to hit the straight. It seems that when going into turns the back end spins out and when coming of of turns its loose as well. I just feel like I have no grip and the buggy dose not want to plant itself to the ground as it keeps bouncing all around the place.

I cant hit the straight full power due to this.

Here is my current set up what should I try next to tame it down for more grip?

1) Shocks were just serviced with recommend weight
2) Sliver springs in the front and green in the back
3) AKA City Blocks Medium
4) Diffs front 5 middle 5 rear 2



3 degree rear hinge pin holders will help alot, might wanna go with a loser reas spring, allow it to roll


IMO stay away from alum wingmounts - I have seen these rip the hold shock tower off the diff case for a major crash - plastic is cheap and flexible

+1 on the wing mount,They are strong but instead of the stress and shock being absorbed into the plastic,the aluminum transfers all that to the rear or whatever its fastened to.
I have 3* degree pin holders and it does great.

The reason I asked for the link was because I didnt not know what the part looks like not becuase I was lazy. As you can see I posted another link on what I thought was the part and its completely diffrent than what you posted.

Not being a pain I just dont know what it looks like.

Should I also replace the rear sway bars? Bigger or thinner?

Here is a picture of my track. This may help out for set up. There is a groove now with somewhat hard packed dirt.

Yea I know it will just transfer all the stress somewhere else, but somewhere else might be stronger. I think I am going to stick for plastic now on the 2.0 and see how it holds up.

Personally myself, I don't like that adjustable hinge pins. I just have bought a 3/3 degree toe plate and I run that all the time. Just personal preferences

This is gettting confusing. I think I should just use grease in the back diff no silicone oil. This should tame it down big time.
