Hard to say. As it was pointed out, you could be contacting the track. The rears could actually be too soft, if they are folding over onto the sidewall. What tires did you have before? Is the track high bite (even for CRC)? What fronts? How much glue?

Sorry, I should have replied last night. I had some local help at the track who showed me the wonders of grinding the middle seam off the tires and the heat cycling / saucing techniques for new tires. I am running glue all the way of the front sidewall and no sidewall glue in the rear (outside of the rim/tire bead). Once I ground the mold release and the seam, I was able to lay down some proper lap times with the car.

Default Motor/Speed Control Recommendtion

Hi, all. Looking to get back into racing as rookie again.

Can someone recommend a good brushless motor/speed control combination to start with?

I will be using a CRC WTF & F104.

Just getting back into and just want to get my feet wet.

Good: Hobbywing XR10 Justock
Better: Hobbywing XR10 G3
Best: Hobbywing XR10 Pro Stock Spec

Motor: Lots of good options from R1, Trinity, Motiv, and Hobbywing

I am personally running a XR10 Pro stock spec ESC in all my F1 cars and my main F1 car uses a Hobbywing G3R 25.5 motor

I have an R1 and Motiv 25.5 for sale also.

Looks like the 'Extreme Spec' based on quick search.

Thanks for the feed back. Looking like I'm stuck with it for now as it looks like no one has the steel one in stock.

I have the Schumacher carbon shaft and so far its has held up pretty well. I had a flip or 2 with the car and nothing snapped yet. Metal shaft wont snap, but they bend. Rolled over once with the metal shaft and bent it ever so slightly but enough make the car feel unbalanced as one wheel was vibrating pretty bad due to the bend shaft.

Mines didn't snap but I had a fracture from a minor crash. The fracture was enough to cause a slight movement/off true axle.

Default Schumacher Icon 1.0

Still work in progress. This is a pretty trick looking chassis (Schumacher Icon). I got the widest body available but the rear side dampers hit the body so had to trim more than I would like to. The stock Servo saver runs the inside of body so not sure what Iím gonna do there but all we need to do is detail the cockpit, paint and finish a drivers helmet and will be ready to motor.
