Lighter diff oils, softer front springs, softer or no front sway bar, shorter rear camber link.

You should mention the surface that you're running on. From the MegaBites I'd assume you're on a loose surface.

I think your setup would have way too much steering and traction roll like crazy at my track.

Lighter front diff fluid will decrease turning radius on power for sure. When I just went from 5 5 3 in the diffs to 7 5 3 it decreased the over steer / turning radius. Perfect for my driving style.

That just means I like Losi stuff. I don't come on here and plug other products every other day.

Ok, again. Not really looking for any suspension settings to gain more steering at speed.

I want to know if anyone has a solution to decrease the turning radius and the utmost slowest speed. Like is there any what to grind the knuckles, C-Hubs, etc....

Unfortunately this truck at low speeds cannot turn a tight arc at low speeds. I'm talking like 5-10% throttle at most. Where I race is tight and technical, VERY tight. We have 2 corners that are 180's that come one right after at very low speed. Good tires and such, just not enough steering through (probably down 25% on the AE Truck

BTW, if anyone is interested, i have some Alu shock tops and collars from a tuning kit. I had them already, so have another set. Both in the plastic, never used.

Will sell them for $30 plus a few dollars to ship, or might trade for some other hop ups.

Default Awesome New Chassis

hey guys just want to throw this out there.. a new chassis design.

http://www.kingheads.com/product_inf...36f1fc0b510e54

more efficient drive train. great strength. and gave me faster laps

they also make a metal cvd pin cover to keep that pin where it needs to be

http://www.kingheads.com/product_inf...4976047789c25f

I run the cvd sleeves, and yes, they are pretty slick. That chassis though doesn't look so hot to me with the motor hanging out over the edge of the chassis and even more off center than stock. The angle of the driveshafts has never bothered me, nor have I ever heard a complaint about how it works. Other than looking a little funky, the stock arrangement seems fine.

skyler hays- It does very well with tight 180's.

dmwilson09- No problem. You should like it.

dgrobe2112- Forgot those, lol. -1 Camber all around, Stock Antisquat, 3.5* Rear Toe. I'll go down to 3* on a very high bite track. Give it a try Daniel, I'll bet you'll like it.

Setting your travel/EPA on your transmitter should be the first thing you do.
