All the theories I read have stated that the opposite should happen. Confused.
The funny thing is, that I had the exact opposite experience with my Xray T2 '009. When I laid the rear shocks down, I couldn't get the car to spin out, but it also had problems with rotating. When I stood the shocks up, it would rotate more, but also had a lot less grip.

I've had it work both ways depending on the car and the track!

I think a lot depends on the specifics of each car, I mean from manufacturer to manufacturer with regard to flex and lateral grip etc.

On my Mi3 and 008 I used to stand the rears up to prevent spin out round the sweeper, with the T3 I lay them down to prevent the spinning
