Default Please Help with Chassis tuning RC10GT

I am having trouble with my truck. It turns left to quickly and has a left hand push (rear swings to the right)when on power going down the straight. Truck travels in a strsight line when off power.One of the thing that I have noticed that is going on is, when I rev the truck in my hand off the track the right rear suspension compresses thus un-loading the right side of the chassis. Is This supposed to happen? I am running 3deg toe 2deg anti squat and RPM arms, RTR hubs, CVD axles, green springs and 30w oil 1deg camber on rear wheels, camber link is in the upper inside location on the tower and the inside location on the hubs
We are running on a clay surface are tires are slicks with soft foams

make sure shock lengths and preload are equal right to left. set chassis on flat surface to check for a twisting type tweak.. also make sure that one of the rear wheels isnt too tight causing binding (this case the left one) double check bearings on left rear hub carrier.. if none of those work out post back and i will offer more..

check the compounds of the tires.

for instance running a m2 compound on one side and a m3 compound on the other will cause this..

also check the two screws on each side that hold the inner arm mounts,, one loose and with play will cause a variable toe in thing and can cause the truck to side track.


have you recently changed out the rear hub carriers or maybe just one? if so maybe there is a mismatched one on there causing one sides toe in to be different than the other.


still check the chassis for twisting (tweak) as well..

Thank for your info, it looks like I have discovered the problem, it was a mip cvd that was trashed out on the dif end, almost no drive pins left! I have replaced it and every thing is smooth again.
