HELP!!!!!!I'm sorry if a solution has already been said previously but here it goes. I'm having a problem with traction rolling on ozite. With foams all the way around it did it (of course) and with wide HPI hard tires up front and standard width hard up front. I have stiff springs up front with a one-way and soft in the rear with a ball diff. I even tried locking the diff, moving the the battery placement around and palying with track width. Any ideas? Thanks!

Put your wheel base as wide as it can go front and rear. Hard tires up front and med or Hard in teh rear as well. If you still get traction roll, remove some sterrig with dual rates. if that don't work your car is broken!! Never heard of a car having that much traction with that setup.

(Just incase your a newbie)
Are you sure it is traction rolling and not spinning out. Traction roll is when you enter the turn an yoru car tumbles. Spin out is when you got into the turn and the rear of the car kicks out.

Are your electronics mounted high as in the stock chassis?

No. I'm not a newbie. I've been racing for over 15 years. I'm running a Ratzas chassis shimmed down to the top of my micro servo with micro RX and ESC. I tried adjusting the dual rates but I couldn't make the turns in the tight sections.
Psycho- Keep in mind that I'm running HPI hard rubber up front and soft foam in the rear.

I'm going to try the stock diff up front next. After that I'm clueless.

that is your problem your foams. Put rubber tires in teh rear as well. foams give to much grip. I run meds. Also make sure your width is out all the way

DH- You should check out Microrcshop.com or go direct to http://66.70.235.59/Merchant2/mercha...ory_Code=cp_te
Vince is out of stock this week but when they are back in you will find most EXO parts discounted nicely under the list price.

Also, in defense of Stefan, I believe he is the same Stefan that just shattered an old track record with an Epic/EXO. Good Job!
