try moving your rear spoiler back a little, that will put more downforce on the rear tires

Also I talked to nexus racing about the plastic diffs. They said some guys are running them in their '007's for stock and 19t. I run a tight carpet course with a ss13.5 motor and it would only cost me $50 to upgrade to the plastic diffs.

Anybody here running the plastic diffs?

Post your full setup (including all the extra stuff like tires, traction compound, track conditions, motor, body, etc.) on the Xray Forum On-line Setup Sheets so we can take a better look.

Where is it loose?

* off-power (using full brakes, motor drag braking, or neutral throttle?)
* on-power (low speed and/or high speed corners)
* mid corner during throttle transition

How much of the front tires are you saucing?

Body Change = less rear grip... what the???

Hey guys I need help please.
I am running a T2 006 and i was using an East Coast Bodies Tune body and changed to a Blitz Mazda 6 as i was told it gives you better traction.
Well i've gone from driving on rails to very loose in the rear when you back off into the corner.
I'm running a solid diff in the front but really need some rear traction.
This body has helped with weight reduction but how can I get more rear grip?
I don't run any sway bars either as our track is a little bumpy too.
Should i change set up or body?

what is your dropp set at? i had this problem and decreased my rear droop and it helped as less weight was transfered to the front of the car under breaking

If your running the original springs in the front that could be the reason, try increasing your rear downstops and stiffen the front springs to blue. Last time i ran at Meakin Park i had to run voilet springs in the front.

I am running white springs front and light gold colour on the rear.
Thanks guys i'll try your droop suggestions asap.

Drew what weight shock oil did you run at Meakin that seemed to work?
I was going to try Losi 25wt front and rear.
Any suggestions?

I ran Xray 30wt front and back, with the T2 2006 i ran two holes open in the front and four holes open in the back. I don't change shock oil, i just use the external shock hole adjustment for damping. Try the downstops first, if that doesn't fix it stiffen the front end.
