Default Pro4 "Spins out" only one direction.

Hey

I just installed my BL system in my Pro4. While just driving in the street i noticed that if i turn left and punch it, the car grips. If i turn right and punch it, it spins out? Does anyone know what this may be caused by or if something it wrong or this isnt a big deal? My guess would be something with the diff....

Tom

Balance or tweak. Or perhaps a broken CVD (3 wheel drive).

CHeck the left to right weight balance.

With a lipo installed that thing is wicked heavy to the right. I attached a fiberglass plate to my battery hold down and mounted my receiver on the left above the battery. I was able to get the car balanced that way.

Also check for bad bearings, shocks and springs. Your weight may be shifting funny when you turn and your suspension can't handle it.
