None of the tracks I race at weigh in the car, so I really wont add weight unless I go to a race that I do need to make a weight limit.

Everything on that chassis has been done just by eyeball, I have an extremely steady hand, been working with the dremel for just a little while

Just be sure to get a bit that can cut surfaces like that. I tried a 2 face router bit as well but that thing sucked, the 4 sided mill bit works awesome.

Default HANDLING PROBLEMS

I have a losi xxx-s and run it on an asphalt track that has some tight turns in it. I have problems getting the car to turn into corners. It seems to want to go straight on. When I slow right down I loose too much to the other guys. I have tried all types of springs and setups. Can someone please help?

Give us a little of your setup info.

What are you running for castor? front swaybars? shock oil? springs?

Does it exit the corner well??

Heh. talking about turn in. I was surprised when I went to Losi's site and saw that most of the guys set up sheets for asphault outdoors were without the use of swaybars. I have my car set up that way and like it, but when do you think it would be a good time to run them, other than carpet?

I use a camber tool which is made by RPM (I think?). They run only a few bucks ($10?)

Part of the reason could be the surface. If it's really bumpy, you want the suspension to do it's work, and not be bound up by a swaybar. I know I ran just the thinner swaybars outdoors.

Johnmatrix - I use a schumacher camber guage.

Woozer - Have you tried lighter springs in the front? The hardest spring I even really run for rubber tire is the blue spring, occasionally green.
