Default Need a bit more speed... sliding.

Hello all... just had a quick question. I am running a 27t losi street weapon with rubber tire on carpet and the car is having a hard time maintaining speed in the corners. It develops a bit of a push and slides a bit on exit. I have the front diff pretty tight and the rear loosened slightly. What can I do to get a bit more grip? I dope the tires and am running about 1 degree toe out in the front and about the same for camber. Believe it or not, I'm about even on treads. Can anyone help me a bit on ideas?

Josh

Increase camber to about -1.5 or -2 front and rear. If that doesn't work then go one spring softer in the front.

Awesome.. thanks. I was thinking I might need a bit more camber as well but wasn't sure. I put some hella soft springs in the front and it helped a ton but still a bit for sliding and not hooking up. Could the diffs have something to do with that?

Most guys run a solid axle in the front racing rubber on carpet, but the back diff usually gets ran pretty free.
