maybe dial out some drag brake, try to limit front chassis roll..or at least I think so. Stiffer springs, heaver oils, smaller holes in piston. Anything to stiffen the front up some should help. Slipper may help too, what tires do the fast guys run at your track?

Id go with a little heavier front oil maybe 35 or 37.5 wt. I may also try to lighten the rear, go inside a hold on tower or out one on the arm, maybe some lighter springs. This is what I would do, see what some other guys say on here and see what they say too.

Another important thing when learning (somthing im still doing) Is to take advantage of your practice time. If you notice something, change it in practice and see if it works. If you noticed something in the main, change it after the race and have it ready for practice the next week. Keep records and data of your changes and how the helped/hurt the characteristics of the car. Good luck..hope I helped some.

make sure the rear arms are level/dogbones above level. try running 2B front & rear camber link. what engine are you running, remember to ease onto the throttle, after the truck squares up, do not punch it.

This is some of the best advice as far as driving goes for any nitro truck racer. Off road incorporates the less traction element of driving therefore being quick on the throttle creats the tires to spin normally sending you in cirlces. I struggle with this for the first few races of the season, after a winter of carpet racing which to me has an excess of traction. Once you adjust just remember always be smooth. Throttle and steering. Throttle control will increase traction, handling, lap times. I was once told that your wheels should never be fully turned while racing, while i know this is hard, do your best to keep from doing it, it can sometimes reduce momentum and corner speed, ultimately making you slower. Try this stuff in all practice days. Good luck

the filter in the tank works fine. no need to add another.
