5000 in the rear is where you are getting your push from try 5-7-2 or if the track is dry and kind of blown out try 5-5-2 it's alittle easier to drive when it's slick and rough. Both of those should give you plenty of steering.

i have 5-7-2 in mine cause i like the rear to rotate a lil more than normal in the corners, I'd rather have the buggy be a lil loose through the corner than push through the corner

make sure your front ride height is 27mm and rear is 29mm, also make sure you have the correct toe out in the front, if the front is higher then the rear or the toe isnt correct it can cause the car to push as well

i think 3000/5000/2000 was one of the diff set ups from the original losi, it would give you more turn in with the lighter fluid in the front also

Common issue....

Tighten your servo saver spring! I almost guarantee its too loose and your losing steering throw on and off power. Then try the 5/7/2, or 5/7/3 or 5/5/3.
