Hey guys,
I got a X1 CR pro and am having some chassis tuning problem... The car likes to flip a lot while cornering.

I tried the orignal out of box setup and tried moving the front and rear shocks to the most inner hole but both didn't help.

tnx

what is your set-up like right now how much camber are you running -2,-2.5 is a good starting point all around also where is your rear camber link in the shock tower, another thing that helps is to cut off the inside and outside row of pins on your tires

let me know what your set-up is like and maybe i can help

Hi,
I'm running -1.5 camber front and -2 rear.

The rear linkage is in the middle inner on the shock tower and outer on the hubs.

WeatherB- Is the car built correctly? If it is all built properly with the stock setup you should not have any trouble with flipping in corners unless your running on a super high grip track (traction rolling). Are you sure its not a driving problem? Perhaps your just running the wrong lines? Watch the fast guys at your track, try and emulate them as best you can and ask them for driving tips on your track. I can tell you that my buggy with the stock setup will not flip while cornering on any surface.

I was running it on pavement so for sure it was traction rolling, just looking for ways to minimize it.

I ran at an *actual* track today and didn't have any problems.

Well if your traction rolling probably the best solution to your problem would be to limit the down travel significantly so that at full extension your ride height is only 15-20mm, add stiffer springs and set your ride height at probably around 12-18mm. Thicker sway bars would also help.

It must be done at all four corners of the buggy. If not the handling will be very unbalanced.

Argggh-Yes you do. I think you need the new towers as well.

Has anyone else had trouble with their rear hubs? I broke one on a light snag in the middle of a qualifier yesterday and it looked like mabye there could have been an airbubble in it. Since I couldnt find anyone else with a Jammin and with no good hobby shop in at least 400km I had to resort to GS parts to fix it. I figure I'll pick up a few extra plastic suspension parts for spares right away here.
