your tires are spinning, easy on the throttle and loosen your slipper clutch a bit.

Welcome to Short-course truck racing. Learn how to drive it without being on the throttle 100% all the time.

Let see...diff too tight? Was it like this when brand new or did you just rebuilt it? Check tire wear. Check shock fuild; too stiff no traction. Check camber. Check ESC punch. Check dogbone wear and make sure they're still attach to the diff.

You also might want to look into some better tires for your track conditions. More traction will help.

Roll the throttle & try putting these hubs on to add 1.5 degrees of toe... #4352

using the stock body? ...That happens...The Proline Desert Rat body has a bit more rear tire clearance, but still rubs every now and then.

my slash was too light up front under full throttle and wouldnt track, I lightened my spring and oil rate up front and moved my battery forward as far as I could. A light front mounted swaybar helped stability in corners. Loosen slipper first
