Rocketmini will definitely run again... have some ideas to sort out the problems and there is now a second one as well.

However it'll be a month or at least before it happens, putting everything up online at the moment is taking all my time. Still loads of content to go up...

The track out here was closing and I got some deals.
They had a pack, funny thing was they were missing the swaybars
Let me know, trying to avoid buying them from the UK for $40. . .

What is your ride height?
What inserts are you using in your front tires?

What car are you running?

I'm no expert but here's what works for me on my MO3M.

You need to get your ride height down, the lower the better 5mm in front and 6mm in the rear. You can go lower if possible. If your using the TRF shocks put 3 rubber O rings on the shaft inside the shocks.

Try short yellow springs in the front and longer blue in the rear.
