Default Traction Roll problem

Can anybody help me with this problem.

I'm running on Ozite carpet only about 2 to 3 months old. What I notice is that after 3 5min heats, my car would start to traction roll entering a corner.

Anybody has this problem and what setup should I have to fix this problem.

I'm using green springs on the front and orange on the rear; double pink orange front foams and double purple for the rears.

Thanks in advance.
Roy

Try shortening your front camber link. I had this problem and the front link fixed it.

By shortening the front camber link, will increase the negative camber right??? This car is new to me so I'll have to look at it and see if I'm wrong.

Thanks.

It wil affect camber considerably but just adjust it to how you had it. The change will still have full affect if your camber is the same as it was.

You should set the camber so the tyre wears evenly If you need anything more than 2 degrees to get even tyre wear, I would say your front springs are too soft.

Traction rolling is normally because you are too soft (i.e the car rolls too much as it transfers weight, and tips), sometimes if you are way too stiff it will happen too (ie too stiff to ride the bumps in the carpet, flipping the car over).

I can't think of an orange Yokomo spring off the top of my head - what are the part numbers?

If it is really high bite, then try supergluing the sidewalls of your tires. That was my problem when i was rolling.

shortening yr top camberlink will increase the rate of camber change as the suspension compresses.

try raising your roll centre. check out the team orion website for an excellent explanation of how roll centres work.
