Yea I'm thinking servo as well. I have another I'm gonna try. Even my X-Ray does it slightly but nowhere near as bad as the Losi.

I see Losi's going backwards everytime I'm at the track racing against them.LOL I guess they're so fast they're going backwards. Sorry just had to add that in.

Am I reading this wrong? "When in reverse"?
The camber of the suspension does that....

This might be the ultimate demise if you continue to run it like it is.

Going in reverse is when it happens, you know, backwards? Thats the opposite of forward.
Nevermind.

So is that excessive - or + camber?

They have to from time to time......every time they overshoot the triple, they go off the track.

Not due to excessive camber, the camber is set so that it works wheel when moving forward. Not backwards Lol

Take darn near any car push it backwards as fast as you can and move the steering the slightest bit. They get a weird steering oscilation.

My buggy does it a bit and the Xray as well but the Losi starts to go into convulsions when in reverse.

Oh well.

Ummm... A blown out bearing and a loose hex nut! That'll cause wobble and the wheel to even fly off! Sorry, but couldn't resist after watching your race.

Since I was having engine problems, I figured it would be a better use of time watching out for where your wheels were falling off at.
