Lazybot....Try some 4 deg blocks and or put some pro-squat in the rear....that means raise the rear roll center block up a little bit like .5mm. Other then that move the rear hub more towards the rear of the car....this should help with what you are talking about.

Ya know all this talk about parts and ordering arms in multiples would make one think that the car breaks easy. That is fartherest from the truth! I have been racing the car for months now in mod and have yet to break ANYTHING and it has taken some serious impacts.
Spare arms = piece of mind.

Good luck to all this weekend.

nope...unlike the TC3...you will not need to handfit any parts. everything goes together very smoothly... bearings are great...no need to flush out and relube...uses a very light lube. Just re-lube as part of the maintenance.

The Factory set-up is a good starting point...from there you can fine tune to suit your driving style. And you can also use the many set-ups posted on the USA and Japan website by Hara and the rest of HPI race team.
