Default xxx bk 1 steering

Hi guys, I am new to the hobby and just purchased a new xxx KE. I am struggling to get front grip / steering. Have tried pink and red fronts, running red x-2000 on rear.Kit setup, hard packed short track in Australia.
Any help much appreciated ! thanx

A faster servo and throttle control. These buggies aren't known for turning all that well. They tend to push through the corners. Try using the stock set up again. It's very neutral.

go with losi 7202s in front..thats the silver compound...most times the reds will make you lose steering as they are too soft.

Make sure the battery is foward

Lengthen the rear camber link...like 1-a

Shorten the front link...like 3-a with no washers

softer front spring

stiffer rear spring

more pack in the rear....thicker oil

Just some suggestions....I'm running the same car and have more steering than I know what to do with so....maybe if you post your current setup it will give us a better idea of your situation and position....

of all the Losi ribs I find the 7206 (3-Rib BK Pre-Scrubbed) in red to give the most grip.

What club/track you at in OZ?, Mr.Doughty is right about the 3 rib BKs.

At tracks like Wodonga, I have found X-2000's have a heap of rear grip, but a change to say big shots, help steering due to there rounder shape, and less grip.

The Kinwald worlds setup works very well here in OZ as well.

If you like I can PM some setup sheets for some of the OZ tracks

Hope this helps, Cheers
