What off set are you using on your wheels?

First thing is make sure you're using the right tires and compound for where you're running. If everyone else is running what you have, you are probably in the ball park tire wise.

Some things I've done to lock the rear end in are longer camber link in the rear. Move the ball stud out 1 hole towards the wheel on the hub and readjust camber. These trucks are camber sensitive too. I almost always ran 1.5-2 degrees rear camber and 1-1.5 front camber

Green rear springs will hook up nice for outdoor with red or blue in the front.

Also make sure your body is mounted as low as possible without rubbing too bad and the front fenders clear the tires when the suspension is compressed and the tires are turned. I usually have to trim a bit of the body behind the front wheels, especially with Proline bodies.

2wd short courses are kind of tail happy no matter what with that big heavy body.

Without knowing more about where you're at on your setup now it's kind of hard to give any pointers.

Good luck with it

Drill the 4 th hole to the inside on the rear shock tower.

Otherwise, look on rc10.com under the setup sheets tab and scroll through a few of the Maifield setups. They work great for mod. For stock you might can reduce the rear ballast weight a little.

Where in AL are you located? Which track are you running at?

Springs are fine.

4th hole adds all kinds of rear side bite.

Inner hole on the rear arm. And front as well. Inside on front tower.

If you were running +3 offset wheels this only affects your front piston choice. Run #2 w standard wheels. #3 w +3 wheels. The wheels do add some stability.

32.5ft 30wt rear oils.
