Traction Roll

What are the causes of traction rolling? Is it that the set up is too stiff or too soft? What to do to fix it?

Several things can cause that. The first thing is usually ride height too high. Run it as low as you can. Next, stiffen the suspension as much as possible until you start losing traction. Third the tires could be to big, not the ride height but the sidewalls. The taller the sidewall the more side bite you'll get causing traction rolling. That is the first things to check for. R.W.
