Default Tamiya Gravel Hound help

guys, need help.

i have a Tamiya DF-02 gravel hound.

Im plagued by terminal understeer. the car has the ff setup:

-gear diffs both ends (no money yet for ball diffs)
-oil shocks with tuned springs
front: 50wt with soft springs
rear: 70wt with hard springs
-the tires i use are the ones from the kit.

can anyone offer a solution to my understeer problem? thanks in advance...

hi Tommi,

i have a Gravel hound too, it works fine with me. i never had any understeer problem for the stock setting. you might want to change the upper hole at the front upright. Or you can visit the Radiocontrolzone. theres alot tips on the DF-02.
