I recently switch to a different radio becuse my old one was glitching. The new one has really good range, but I can't get the car to go straight when I accelerate. (the back end wants to come out, because it has too much power) The new radio is more sensitive than the old one, so it's hard to get it to go straight.

Can I do anything to the radio to stop it from being so sensitive, like adjust the tension on the wheel or something?

Thanks

Isn't dual rate for adjusting the sensitivity?

Anyway, what kind of range does a Futaba 2pl have? I need at least 300 feet.

Dual rate turns down the steering throw, i.e-lower %=less wheel movement.
If the car is unstable under full throttle it's probably a chassis problem. Add more front toe-in.
