Questions?? Paved flat oval setup help

I'm running a Losi 2wd 22s SCT on a flat asphalt oval, I am running 2,2/3.0 Banditos and lowered the shock height so its about 1" over the ground. I am getting some serious oversteer in the corners. what suspension tweeks should I make on the corners?

You would probably get a quicker answer to post to the oval forum.

Here a few quick suggestions...
- Slow down or tap the brakes before you hit the corner. You may just be going too fast.
- Turn down your steering. You rarely need full steering when racing oval
- Try a harder right front spring or stiffer oil. More pre-load on a spring IS NOT the same as harder spring
- Try a harder right front tire or tire with less grip.

Since you are running an off-road vehicle on oval, You might find some good help if you search through r/c dirt oval forums, as many of those classes are based on off-road vehicles.

RCTECH.net also has an oval section that you can check out at the following link...

Another web forum that has a lot of oval discussion Hobbytalk which can be located at this link
