what kind of tires are you using? It could just be your cars set up. If you are running take off cs-27s then i believe it will be loose until you change the cars set up some (i wish i could help with set up, but bone stock worked for me with foam tires)

Since it was a used car, I would start by going back to the stock setup suggested by Associated. It is usually the best place to start and isn't far off ideal setup. I have never had a loose condition on carpet, check through things like diffs, ride height, shocks (oil), ect. to make sure something isn't way off what it should be.

When i first started racing my TC3, i used to go around talking to the other TC drivers looking at there set ups and trying each one until i found a set up that worked. Then once i had it running well i started to play with the set up stightly. Also i chatted to pro's that ran TC's on carpet tracks around the world on places like here. from this i learned to change differnt thing like tires my new tire compounds have given me more grip than i used to cause thats what the pro's where running. So its always good to ask asmany people as you can

Let us know what kind of setup you got going there, since you got it used, shock oil in the shocks will be a variable. Post it up. Guys on here are more than happy to help you out.
