Default Tc4 Handling Problems

Hello everyone,
Got a question again about my TC4...The car is handling too loose going into turns, the backend is sliding out...The droop is at 7 in front(about) and 5 in back these are approx since I suck at measuring droop...I am using purple 30lbs springs in front and yellow 35lbs in back...Any ideas on what I can do to get the car to handle a little better...I have a lot of speed, but am lacking some control...Thanks in advance Jeff

Default TC4 thread

Try looking over the TC4 thread you should be able to get a ton of info there.

Try out different setups posted on the Associated site to find a base.

TC4 is still a solid car to use.

Try flipping your springs front to back. I always try and keep my front springs slightly stiffer then my rear.

Leave the Purple fronts, put coppers on the rear. Will make a HUGE difference.
