Hello every one I have a problem.

Im running the fist E4 with a 10.5 Brushless. On rough hot mix asphalt

And whats happeing is that the left front tyer is getting absolutly hammered. What seems to be happeing is that the Right front is beening lifted up and the car is just leaning on the left. Im having to adust the camber for it to wear evenly. But at this rate the tyers gonna be gone very fast. Does any one have any tips or know what i should do to stop it lifting the right.

Ps i am running the solid in the front. No sway bars, Tyers 28s with medium inserts.

Usually if one end of the car is lifting a tire the other end is too soft.
28's may be a bit soft as well. Try using a rear sway bar and or stiffer springs/oil in the rear. Check track temperature as well. 32's or even 36 durometer tires might be more suited for your application. If you have to run so soft due to the condition of the surface you are on then dialing it in may be a bit more tricky. Smooth and less coarse surfaces will result in better longevity as well. I remember a race in Modesto CA that you absolutely needed a new set of tires ... EVERY RUN! So don't feel too badly. And good luck.

Please tell me thats the plastic one.
I highly recommend the aluminum ones.
That are tons stiffer, more trustworthy and only 3 grams heavier.
