Matt try stiffer springs. That should allow for less roll or you can use a sway bar. Try harder compound tires also. Its all trial and error.

Xray are going very well in the UK at the moment with Andy Moore been the only person to win 2 rounds of the BRCA nationals this year. At Ashby last weekend him and Ben cosgrove finished 1st and 2nd with Andy Childs finishing in the top 10 as well. From what i can gather they are using the new shorter C hub wishbones. Rick

Kraig I know has great support. But personally I go to ashford hobbies cause Robbert always has the parts in stock and ship the same day and gets to me the next day. Would I place an order with Kraig? Who knows....depends if I can't find it anywhere else. But probably yes, as I tend to order from a lot of different people.

Hey guys, thanks for the input. Stephen kind of let the cat out of the bag a little bit but that is ok I won't put him the wall to many times. I really appreciate all the feedback and input that everyone has given us.

It sounds like you might be running the car to soft and scrubbing off speed thru the sweepers.
Have you tried using a one-way yet?
You might also want to try a front swaybar maybe even a rear swaybar.
Definetly sounds like you do need to stiffen up the car a little though.

Later,
i just bought a new pair of shimizu 24's and i scrubbed them in on the first night of racing,

i run on brushed concreate

would a one-way fix this problem?

A oneway might help, but since you are running on concrete you might need a little firmer tire, maybe a 28 or 32. Stiffening up the car may also fix the problem.

It just sounds like the car is to stuck and needs to be loosened up. The things mentioned above should help free it up. I would try one thing at a time and take note as to what happens. I would probably start out by stiffening up the car, then try the oneway and last try firmer tires.

Later,
