acloco,

Try running gold and silver w/ 40/30 oil.

Also, you don't need all that droop. Try about 2 mm over ride height all around. All that droop causes lots of front to back weight transfer and visa versa; you don't want a lot. BTW, more rear droop is going to give more weight transfer to the front since the rear end can lift up higher when the car dives going into a corner, making your problem worse. If it is losing traction entering a corner i suggest you take droop out.

Also, are you sure your rear diff isn't too tight? That could really do it. Make sure it is just tight enough so it doesn't slip, you don't need it any tighter than that.

Try running the rear camber link upper and outer. That should allow the rear end to roll more and will give more side bite.

If none of this works then there's something else going on not dealing with the chassis/suspension.

If you slide your finger along my 12th scale chassis and battery slots-its silky smooth. Take your time, make it pretty!!!

I usually start with 200 sand paper and finish with 600 on the edges. When I am done with that I use Q-tips to appply the CA on the edges. You will need a few Q-tips and you will also need to wear a mask and eye protection. The CA when it starts to dry can go gaseous and its nasty!!!

Also-the rounded edges are less likely to delaminate in a crash and also wont snag on carpet-making the car handle better at lower ride heights.
Guys,
When prepping the chassis, can you soak it in water before and while you are sanding. I want to minimize the dust since I heard that it is not good for you. Also, cheap dust mask will not work, only the $30 ones are safe enough. Any thoughts on this? Thanks.

acloco have you tried just lowering the D/R and steering ratio on your radio? I always do that first before I mess around with the set-up.

I know this has been talked about, BUT.

What the advantages/differences in the Warpspeed diff cases? Also what is the cost?

We match at 30 amps. The numbers can run 410-425.
Average voltage is 1.175 to 1.88.
