hey guys i need help. i just built my new super and it handles like crap. i know i need sometime to set it up but need some advice. i am using a set of prebuilt aluminum shocks and they have 45wt in the front (i am using the lowered front shock mount) and the rear shocks have 65wt oil. i actually thought the rears are supposed to have lower wait but thats how they came. they supposedly came from a race tuned super. for tires i am using kyosho wide in the rear and narrow in the front. i have not actually tried the stock slicks yet. the problem is with the rear sliding out on any turn with decent speed. rear always loses grip and spins out. in the diffs i am using the standard hpi grease. any advice on getting the rear to hook up without loosing steering? i am really suspicious about the shock oil... now if i just get this car to handle like my tc3, that would be awesome. thanks in advance
Getting a super to handle like a tc3, YEA that would be great
But hear are a few things I have done in the past to mine.
Since it is a heavier car than most try heavier shock oil, and you are right the heaviest should be in the front, try 70- 50 also try 5lbs diff in spring between front and rear.
get those diff springs, they do work
As far as tires depends alot on conditions, the Kyosho ones come in 3 compounds, I personally like the RJ Rides on mine.
Are you running a sway bar? what is your ride height?
try a few things and see what happens, it is a fun car to drive when its set up
