Are you using the stock shocker or oil fill shock?
You can post and ask at the thread Tamiya Mini Cooper.

If you used the stock shocker,change it!
If you use oil fill shock,try this;

Front and rear
2 hole piston(1.5mm) with 60wt oil 4mm rebound with inner limited of 4mm for mini shock
Spring front and rear
Yellow front and red rear.

I had using this set up with great fun to drive.

Hope this help

Cheers
James

Check out rc-mini.net's rundown on m05 race setup. I've got most of what they recommend on my mini now and the handling difference is huge!

Here's a link: http://rc-mini.net/joomla/index.php?...=23&Itemid=148

S-grips and m-grips are good for tamiya rules, or m and m.
