I might just have to do that, you surely had the good stuff when I left off, glad you're still around

Thanks. And yea the temp was def higher than i would normally run but for a 10minute a main i didnt want to gear down and lose all my power. The speed passion motor actually never faded the whole race so it all worked out.

Thanks kraig. I had to strap it up in the last half of the race to win that one. Raced lavery clean in the beginning then got done dirty a couple times later after i got by him.

Hoffmans roof slide pass on me was epic!!

Hello all.

Have a small issue. Coming off the straight onto either a sweeper or a 90 degree left turn my rear end washes out. I have to go in, dive the truck in and kind of counter steer it o I don't loose it. Any suggestions.

Diff isn't tight
-2 rear camber
Soft tires
28mm ride height
30 weight oil front and back.

Go -1 on the camber front and rear. U very well may not have the contact patch u need for accelerating out of the turn and this causes your rear end to just keep rotating. A longer camber link might help u out as well but I don't know what ur set up is right now.

32 mm front ride height and 28-30 in the rear. Your diff shouldn't be too loose. When u "diff out", u are essentially putting all the lateral force on the outside tire and then whatever tracking the inside tire makes is pushing the truck forward. Depending on how the traction is, your just making the situation worse.

For oil, I run 32.5 front and 27.5 -30 rear so ur not off there.

Regarding weighing the corners of our truck and the affect of shock collar adjustment.
U should weigh the corners without springs. Then after the springs are on adjust collars for the same balance. Frankly I doubt most of us would ever feel a weight difference on the four corners. But I am reassured in the back of my mind somewhat when I get it "close enough" on the scales when laying out components and such, and let the collar thing just be a height/shock adjustment. When you move the collar it's the same thing as the guy stuffing that big wrench in the back window of a nascar, (weight "jacking") so in fact adjusting the collars does shift the weight balance of the car (we all know that). Doesn't mean squat if your not rubber side down ALL the time. I also believe lighter is better so I generally "balance" my car with the components and only use lead when neccesary.

Thanks. Its only the left hand turns as those are the only turns that I have issues right after the high speed runs. Any other left 90 turn at low speed its fine.

Tract is hard packed slightly dusty with good traction.
I'm not really running anyone's set up just put things where the tune with camber links suggested for what I was looking for. (Side bite) its always done it though.

I got the lipo all the way in rear (5000mah) with the stock kit rear springs. I did raise it a bit and put a 4000 mah lipo and it seemed as it didn't do it as often, maybe I was bottoming out?? Someone suggested me to put my rear top shocks in the middle or outer hole in the top tower since I'm on the inside hole..
