I tried a longer rear camberlink by moving it inner lower on the rear, move the hubs forward so that one spacer was front and 3 behind. moved the battery back. moved the shocks in one on the tower in the rear. Nothing worked loose loose loose mainly on mid to exit of the turns. And i have a buddy who has had the same issues and couldnt figure it out either. Would it be smart to add some weight to the rear? So far on it outdoor track the car wont be driveable. On indoor tacky clay track the car is awesome. And i had the right tires on as the number 1 and 2 drivers were using the same thing.
I had the same issue with the stock setup. Went to black springs front on #2 on tower and it fixed it for me. Something to try if you have the option springs.

I ran my 2.0 at the track yesterday and I don't have as much steering to the left as I do to the right?

Raced my first race ever last week. The 2.0 did awesome. Placed 6/8 4/8 5/8. We ran the main all together. Defiantly hooked on racing now! Had a few glitching issues the first heat (also a bit nervous for my first race haha) but fixed those for heat #2 and the main. Can't wait to get back to it this week!

Also, double check that your steering tie rods are the same length. Make sure you have full throw on your servo settings, and one that i notcied make sure your esc or batteries wires are not in the way of the steering horn.

Servo horn should be at 90* when servo is centered to ensure full travel each way.

I think the TLR guys are running 3/4 turn out from bottomed out.

Well, sort of...or sometimes I would say with this one. 90* is optimal, but sometimes it needs to be cocked towards the rear of the vehicle some so that the screw head does not hit the servo. This is what makes that aluminum 22 horn so good is the bend it has in it versus the length.

What they are saying is sometimes, the servo saver can loosen so much that the blue servo nut hit the chassis and then it does not steer correctly.

The team mostly runs there's all of the way tight. For most, I suggest tightening it all the way and then backing it off 1/2-3/4 of a turn. Always be sure to put thread lock on it.

Would like to use 3s as well not looking for massive speed but would like things to run quicker than the rtr setup and cooler. Thanks
I would like to hear suggestion for this as well because I have the same motor waiting to go in a ten scte. From what I have read, guys running the castle 1410 3800kv are having good results with 16t pinion. If no one comments otherwise, I will probably start with 16t and adjust up or down based on performance and temps.

Always go light on the dif oils on tracks with no grip, also light rear shock oil.

Not looking for what tire to run, just need a setup that will make the truck tight in rear end.
