be more specific about the eaxct handling problem - is it trouble riding the bumps, is it nose down or nose up in jumps?

Anyway, if you've modified your car to have 2 inches ground clearance, it's probably not running right, because the suspension arms must be at an absurd angle, and the driveshafts won't like it.

Off-road, a 250mm wide buggy will always handle better than a rally car.

Try putting the HPI green rally springs in the front and keep the blacks in the back. That should help keep the nose up a little. What shock oil are you using? I use 50wt in mine, with the green springs up front and it seems to do the trick for me.

Yep, stiffer front springs will give the car a more "nose-up" attitude in the jumps.
