Try IFmar stud...

Sounds similar to our track over here and we run proline 8081's (except you can't get them over there).

you can try the proline evil twins, on the inserts, cut about a 1/8 inch off the inside edge (so its beveled) and about a 1/4 inch of the outside edge. now it should look like kinda like a donut. you may want to try a lighter spring or shock oil or try a couple of washers under the inner ball stud on the rear shock tower. losi bk bars should also work. but don't cut the outter edge of the insert. i would start with the washers as it is the easiest and cheapest. how much anti swat are you using?

you can trim the innner and outer rows of the ifmar pins and gain tire roll.. seems better that way

Try the new associated team / factory B4 standard setup with step pins, you shouldn't have any traction problems. I race on a very similar track, ruts and all. You just pick the best line you can and go for it...

You might have better luck using silver or green rear springs, black is really soft.

--------
From kdubs post on rc10b4.com:
--------
New Kit setup (for team and FT kits):

Front: #1, 30 wt, no limiter, Brown spring, 25 block, axles down, 2 bumpsteer, shocks 2-Out, link 1-A, 1 washer, -1 camber

Rear: #1, 30 wt, 2 limiter, black spring, hubs middle, 2 antisquat, link 1-C, 2 washers, shocks 1-In, -1 camber, battery back

This was developed over months of testing to make the car easy to drive. It works best on low to medium grip tracks, indoors and outdoors. It has good rear traction and jumps flat to nose-up.

Typically when I run this, I run either 32.5 wt mix oil or 35 wt all around. I also like a bit more down-travel all the way around. For higher grip tracks, try shortening the rear link to 'B' in the hub or going up to Green rear springs.

Unfortunately the two spring kits associated sells does not yet include the brown fronts or black rears.

#6493 Brown Front springs
#6481 Black Rear springs

Your local hobby shop or online store will have em. I've been running a setup very similar to this with green rear springs and 30 degree castor blocks. You will have almost uncontrollable steering !

Because they are made specially for us and some where else like Germany or something.

We don't have many blue groove tracks here. So we need grip.

I will be getting some out later on ready to put on. I'll throw a pick on here for you.
