A bumpy indoor, but generally high-traction, track. 2K and 3K made it too darty. It wanted to claw all over under full acceleration (a "diff-out" issue perhaps?) 5K seems to make it go straight under hard acceleration.

5K doesn't seem to increase the tension by that much. It still steers just fine. Running a 4-gear rear motor configuration, by the way. Tons of rear traction but it still turns.

A little unconventional, I know. But don't be afraid to try new things to see if it works for you. Maybe it will work for you and your track and maybe not.
