Default HELP PLEAZZZZZE!!!

I have problems with my car: I run standard shocks with white springs and blue front. One way drive with Atomic outdrives front and diff with Excell outdrives on the rear.
Problem is that my car is sliding and not controlable. Ride height is 5mm f&R. In every corner it spins. What can I do this to solve this.

on that Schumacher pitspace site there is some pic's as well, look under the "Summer Sizzler" race section.

-Jeff Specoli-

as far as more info on the TKE car...contact yokomo
I heard the TKE car was really "Flying" this past weekend at the vegas warmup. Especially after the race was over, lets just say, how does that song go? "She's like the wind"

Tried to lock the diff but it was the same result. My diff has ceramic balls.

Tyres? Had this problem recently-turned out to be 2 front inner hinge pins were bent after a bad knock.

White and blue springs are VERY soft, if you are running on a surface with average to high grip the car will be leaning right over on itself and losing grip.

I would go up to a stiffer spring, I always found green fronts and yellow rears to be a good starting point.

Are you talking Rayspeed springs or Yokomo? Greens are the softest Rayspeeds.. IIRC MrUnlimited runs an LCG and that car comes with Rayspeeds.

How old are the tires on the car? I always replace my tires, at the very least every second meeting. Generally I run CS27's as they're a good all round tire when its not too hot or tire choice is controlled. If your tires are older than a couple of meetings, replace them. Tires are 90% of a cars speed.

Check for tweak.

Check your hingepins, as previously mentioned.

Check your droops f&r.

What is the general setup on the car? Anything signifigantly different to the kit setup?

No he did not bolt the KD into the TKE car... he did however put the F.O.O.T. into the TKE......It was way faster........

I use Raypseed springs. Would a change to the SSS shockbodies a good choice instead of the standard?

The kit comes with SSS bodies. The SS bodies are longer than the kit ones.
