Default flipping in turn!

My back yard track is set up to get practice for just about every race situation. I have long a straight, woops, rough spots, tricky jumps, and some tight turns. In one of my turns I seem to flip over about 2 out of five times so I started to slow down and hit the turn different than before and still the same result. This turn is no worse that some on most tracks is there any thing I can do to the suspension to help with this? I am wanting to move from bashing to racing this spring and the fine tuning of the set up is new to me and any help would be great. Thanks

Your probably "catching a rut" with your wheel and that's what's causing you to flip. I suggest adding 1 degree of negative camber to the rear. This should help.

Default Try

Try lowering the rear droop and ride height just a bit...

+ 1, I have always found adding more negitive camber eliminates this problem.

Try limiting the droop and add negative camber and that should help the traction rolling.

Reasons can be:-ride hight too high,-need more negative camber,-too much side bite (not the right tires,tire outer edge has too much bite)If u using a crime fighter tipe tire make sure u cut the outer pins in 45 deg angle,-too much droop,-u r too fast in the turn.Just the same info what the other folks said...I am jealous because u have your own practice place!J/K

If you surface is grass, get thicker rollbars (but I doubt you track is grass?)

Try other tires, more neg camber, slighty thicker swaybar maybe, shorter camberlink in the rear, lower ride height.
