Default XXX4

Hi Aaron,
Do you drive the XXX4 at all? If so, how can I get mine to stop front end diving off jumps? Its terrible! Thanks!

It could be something in your suspension but most of the time it is all about the aproach to the jump. I can't answer for aaron but that is what I ususlly find.

If you you've got drag brake setup on your 4wd, i found that could make the car nose dive as well. You don't think you're on the brakes in the air but you really are. Also, if you're running a rear swaybar, take it off and throw it away

Make sure the rear end isn't bottoming on the face of the jump.

If it isn't:

More front end down travel, more front spring preload.

Less rear end down travel.

Give it a little throttle in the air to pick up the nose, a little brake to drop it.

More front pack and less rear pack is generally an easy solution.

Default Thanks!

Thanks guys! I will remove the rear sway bar, readjust the drag brake and add stiffer spring to front as well as thicker oil. I appreciate the advice!

uno,

ive found that on average traction surfaces, a nice soft front suspension really helps maintain steering control. just make sure your shocks are up for it.

a soft suspension is a real work out on the shocks, but ive found it great for high speed steering over not quite perfect dirt. most tracks i can throw a bit stiffer springs on the front, but for surfaces that arent quite perfect, soft works great.

i actually dont know what strength my front springs are, they were aftermarket shocks and were on the truck when i got it, but i love em. ive tried a few different ones but keep going back to the original silver ones my truck came with. mind you, the front tires do bounce quite a bit on my truck, but with losi directional somthing or other ribs on the front, the thing will turn on a dime. even on power!

if youre talking about racing strictly on a track, then disreguard my banter. most tracks are smooth enough not to have to soften the springs.

hey Aaron. i just wanted to thank you for the setup. raced today and the truck handled great. id have liked a little bit more slow-med speed turning, but it wasnt anything a blip of the throttle couldnt fix. id imagine i could probibly get more steering with just some radio tuning. thanks again

chris

Hey, what's up Aaron?

I was just flipping through my RCCA today and saw you and Ryan Cavalieri and Adam Drake in a Trinity Fuel ad, and it says that you got 3rd place in the Nitro Maxx Challenge... Well, I just posted to say Congrats!
