Default Spinning out!

Hi,
We run XXX-s's on our indoor slick (painted concret) track. We have one car that spins out all the time power off entering a corner. Power on stearing and rotating though the corner are great. We have checked it against the other losi's and can see nothing different. Any ideas where to look or what settings to change.
P.S. It has new rubber and ran well for 10 laps in practice and then just went off, (no hits no walls).
Thanks Eddie

This sounds like the brake is kicking in when you go off throttle. If you guys are running stock motors then check to see if the neutral setting is right. Just yesterday at our track there were two guys having the same problem and both had some brake kicking in and not a true neutral. Hope this helps.

Where were you at last Thursday and Friday? I thought for sure that we would see you at Gilroy. That is a very nice track. You NORCAL racers are so fortunate to have so many nice places to run. Stockton, Ripon, SW, Gilroy, etc.

Hey Todd, are you going to try to challenge Dirt's stranglehold on the Hitec Parking Lot Challenge this year?

Todd,

Yes, a little birdie (named Badboy) told me you would be at Gilroy for two days...being Wednesday and Thursday. Was ready to come down on Wed; but, when I heard you weren't there, I thought you had cancelled.

Was at Gilroy on Saturday for the NorCal TC Series and was told what days you had practiced on...duh for me...

Yup, we are blessed with these tracks...and Modesto, RCCAR, Santa Cruz, Fremont and RC Tech...

I might be able to fit in a small road trip to come check it out.
