Default loose on corners

I tend to loose the back end around corners with my T4. I run on clay with medium to high traction. Would changing my rear hubs help?

You could try a few things, but only 1 at a time. Adding some weight to the rear end could help. You could move your rear camber links out on the hub carriers (towards the wheel). Are you using the same tires as everyone else?

First thing to try is tires. Try running tires in the front that have much lower traction that the rears. I watched a guy running an SC10 which is basically a T4 set up for short course and he ran stock tires in front and proline calibers in the rear and he was absolutely the fastest car on the track.

Tires will always be the first thing to try as long as your basic car setup is sound. Starting with the stock setup on the truck and experimenting with tires will be the most productive way to change the handling.

T4 and SC10 are very similar, so here is what I did to get mine dialed in when it was ass-happy

1.Move battery all the way back against shock tower (requires FT strap or putting the little rubber hinge thingies under the battery bar.

2. 4.0 degree rear tow-in block

3. Good tires, Goosebumps, Calibers and Subcultures seem to be the favorites: I use Calibers

Do these 3 things and you'll be glued.
