Did you replace your thrust bearings? Your rear end bearings could be seizing up when hot, thus tossing your rear around. Check your other bearings as well. What are your settings? Are they posted on Xray's set-p page?

my stock front axles are done with only one weekend of rubber tires racing on them. What off-set are you guys running ? 1+ or 1- .. The spring steel ones still rub the dog-bone ?

Thanks

Mostly when I let off the throttle on a turn the car does a complete 360 into the rail.

In Oz, they are called Easy Outs. The die has a left hand tapered thread so it locks into the driled hole. Simply drill out the centre of the screw, insert the die and then extract the screw. No need to strip down the car or damage the chassis.

I run standard kit offset of 0 deg, as are most guys I think, as the -1, +1 hubs aren't available yet...

The spring steel ones will rub the dog bone as well, they will just not mushroom like the aluminum ones. I have been running my car 3x a week now for 8-9 weeks, and the bearings are slightly tight coming off the axle hubs.

The -1 and +1 should be here in the states in about a week or so!

This only started in the last race and before that it was fine. I just rebuilt the shocks so maybe I'll see a difference. Thanks

You might think that this is a silly answer to the 360 problem, but here is what happened in my case.
I run my 3pk both in my buggy and in my Xray. One day I was facing the same problem with you and have been wrenching around all day to find out eventually that my 3pk's mode was set to the buggy program and my EPA where all over the place. What happened was that the servo was steering excessively and the front wheel was binding, causing the car to spin out just like yours.
Although it might sound stupid, check it out and let us know.

Under load at full lock I seem to get loads of chatter at the front wheel and can't find the problem??
I have turned the steering down so that it doesn't touch the c-hub at full lock but problem persists ... any ideas??
