It's because we think Bruce has cooler hair than Hara!

Need a little setup advice. My car is pretty good, but the car is scrubbing too much speed in the corners. If I really push the car when the batteries are fresh it will over rotate otherwise it handles great. Here is my setup. My ride height was 4mm front and rear. I just put new tires on it and now it is at 4.5 rear and 5 front.

Front 20's
Purple tire
2 degree caster, Old skool lowered


Rear sides blue
Grey tire
Losi hydra med
black center spring
80 weight oil
2mm shim under center shock

Try dropping to a red center spring and 60 wt. oil.

That is correct, red AE spring, the SM black is a 17pound spring and then there are the stock springs that come with the VCS shock that are AE, but really too light to run on a spring car.
