i have tried some proline holeshots they had a very hard tire insert (bought them with a set) they worked well but they only last me two race meetings and i have been talking to friends at my local track and they say that a soft inserts are good for the track some have have had them going for six meetings and they are still in good condition

many thanks for the advise i will give it a try with the set screws in the a-arms

I would try different tires first. Another thing is, buggys are very sensitive to ride height and droop changes. I would try raising the front 1mm and lowering the rear 1 mm if you're doing trackside changes.

You may have a good setup and you are just turning the wheel to hard. I had this trouble with the ACE servos(very fast).
Try a drastic amount of -exponential and see if you like it. This is a quick thing to try. If you still do not like it the you will have to chase a setup one thing at a time

Exactly

I had the same issue changed to 1000 in the rear diff and the rear end was planted, also make sure you're running the right tires.

I liked my 1.0 with 5-5-5 so it doesn't sound crazy to me.

And remember, try ONE thing at a time...

Didn't see anyone mention clutch. You may have to much snap in the clutch as well. Smoother clutch with a smooth throttle finger will help more than anything.

it has been working well until i made some changes to help my car more stable on the bumps along the straight at my local track. would making the camber links longer help because i have made them shorter? and would putting more toe-in at the back help?

longer rear links will make for less camber change so should help a little toe in helps on power keeping the car straight should have 3 deg. toe in back and either 2 or 2 deg of anti squat what is the exact set up you are running right now diffs and links ride height i fhave 7000 in your middle diff. should try 5000 in back 3000 should be good 5000 in the front also if still to loose try running green and black clutch springs on blue and composite shoes pros like to run the softer clutch setup at tracks where the traction is a problem but have found that the softer clutch setup for non pro drivers just makes the car better to drive so would try those things one at a time until get it the way you want it if change evedrything at onnce car will feel totally different and wont no what did what if you dont like it i would start in this order
longer rear upper link
3 deg. toe in
5-5-3 diffs.
softer clutch setup
also try running all the back wheel base set up for rear hubs
