i have adjusted the droop to try and compensate but no better

also a friend runs one at the euro's and he adds 25g of weight to the right front of the car , i have tried but still no better

please help !!!
Take the shocks off the car and check the chassis for tweak on a setup board or remove the bumper, rear body posts and antenna (if needed) then flips the car upside down on a setup board and see if it wobbles or teeter totters at all, if it does loosen all the screws and re-tighten on a flat surface making sure its flat after.

while you have the shocks off the car check them with calipers to be sure they are all the same length, aren't binding, and have equal rebound (or close) check the swaybars for equal lift right and left and that they werent bent in a crash, check the hinge pins too.

put it back together set your droop equal right/left and check your circles to make sure the wheels travel equal right and left and that should fix your problem

Talking New Limited Ed. Scythe

I was anodizing some cars, tools and other misc items. Here's how the old Scythe turned out. . Just in case anyone was curious to see how a blue one would look.

Are there any other diffs other than top racing ones that fit in a scythe?

I use Yokomo SD/BD after market spools from Team Bomber in my Scythes and they work great.
Just shim out one side for about .5mm of play.
Std Scythe diffs are also Yokomo parts.

You can mount the lipo better with the lipo tray of the Photon.
A club member did it and it works great.
Just dril 2 holes to mount the lipo tray of the Photon.

I was thinking of the same but someone was interested in my car.
So I made a good deal with him.

As you make a rain car out of it do the next thing.
Build it in plastic back on.
Than set a diff in the front and rear. Keep the top bulkheads of allu.
The car will drive great in the rain. Lots of grip and steer.
