What are you doing online? Shouldn't you be standing by your wife's side while she gives birth to your child??

Here's a rubber tyre on carpet setup with no traction compound... pretty awesome to drive (for me). Had a quick JRX-S driver take over for a couple of laps, and he couldn't drive it...

Carpet, asphalt, rubber or foam? A little more detail and we may be able to help.

I'm running on high traction tight track with rubber tyres. The setting is almost the same as the stock rubber setting at the back of the manual with 40wt all around and 25lbs front and 20lbs rear.

Sounds like you traction rolled out of the corner. How are you saucin the tires on your car? Hopefully very little up front if at all.

If you're running on asphalt try using the spool up front this will give you less overall steering but you will carry more speed through the corner and it will keep your car from rolling so much. Also check your droop I think the kit calls for 3mm over ride hieght on a high bite track I've never needed more than 2mm over ride hieght. Hope this helps.
Adios,
C

sounds like you're running carpet? a quick and easy fix to traction rolling is to set the car up with the rear stiffer than the front, like swapping the springs on your car... sounds counter-intuitive making the front softer, but it's really not. the car will rotate easier and will break traction rather than roll.

Thank you very much for the helps. I think I should add more detail. I'm using 42T spool running in high traction asphalt tight track.
