My car is handling pretty good, but it hooks in the middle of the corners. (Rotates fast). How can I fix this without changing the handling in other areas?

Maybe your diff is too loose? I really dont understand the question too much.

I hear it's Pro4 territory now and a lot of my old friends there are all HPI. No Xray parts on hand. Although my buddy & I might race RSJ tomorrow.

Hope to see ya around!

AJ has oval fri and sat - sunday is regular racing. I went to RSJ to practice on Sat, and there were 2 Xray guys there - Brian Jucha and Alex. I will be at AJs Sunday for sure. There is an AJs thread on this site.

I had this setup last week, but I'm actally liking it. I can go into the corners hot and not loose either end of the car, then point and shoot. That was with foams, front diff, 6*Chubs, front shocks straight up (stock FK tower).

If your shocks are straight up in the front, try bringing them in one hole. OR you may want to go with 3* caster blocks so you don't get to much caster gain mid corner. If you are using 6* Chubs, don't put more than 1* camber in front. Not sure what your settings are at. I'm going by results of my own testing.

Cool. My buddy is set for going to RSJs. I personally would like to go to AJs. Jucha is fast, met him a couple years ago, when we were all in our Losi faze as Venture.

A couple of pages ago a bunch of guys were talking about diff lube..........I never could find out what the general concensus was.

So?

I'm telling you, I saw the P-Dub bumper this weekend. That thing is stout. One of those things will be on my car soon!

The Rubberneck is something different, I believe.
