I need TRACTION! Losi XXX-NT

OK, here's my first problem.
1 - XXXNT with a .12 cv-r (I know it's over kill)
2 - slide carb (too much throttle response and no reducers available)
3 - Can't get the diff to run very loose because it will slip.

I keep loosening up the slipper, and running it looser and looser. This past weekend it ran and hooked up great in our second heat, then in the main it was all over the place. Both tires would break loose instantly and a fishtailing I would go.

I need....
The best tires for a loose kinda sandy track, and how do I get the diff to loosen up some more without it slipping? Is the RRP diff the answer?

The RRP diff gear is a good hop-up, but you do not want the diff to slip to provide traction in that way......

It sounds more like tires than anything else........

Look and see what the local fast guys are running.....
Step Pins would be a good starting points.....

Try a little neg. expo in the your radio.
Also check your slipper pad and disc.

Default traction?

I actually do have the step pins, and the small pin was 50% before the day, and 0% after. I can't keep going through these tires. I was thinking of trying some gladiators, but have never seen them run yet. I also jumped a tooth on the clutchbell. I'm not sure if I can go up another, but I was going to try that also.

As for the expo on the radio, I am going to try playing with the settings some to see if I can kill the bottom a little. I don't think I can go too much richer without fearing a flame out. It's running in the low 200's pretty consistently.

That hitec radio with the novak xxxtra saved my butt this weekend. I'm soooo glad I got that one. Now if I could only find another xxxtra receiver to run in the t-maxx.
