I once had a front tire undershimmed so bad that it would wobble in turns and cause the rear to slingshot constantly. Once shimmed properly, the problem went away....

If you read my post it incorporated checking titre glue specifically. Rebuilding a car is NEVER a bad thing, and trying to make people beleive it is, is misleading and illinformed.

Stop ! No more ill advice from the EU !!! I was right! End of discussion... Moving on forward! Car issues should be looked at from the outside in, and not the other way around: you start from your tires, and work your way in to save time... Time is money, at least in the Americas ! EU ? Who knows????

Yes you should, but you are as bad at listening as giving RC advice...

That is true. That's because it was a CV pin. If it was your tire coming unglued, you would have whipped on right turns. Duh! You coming to ther track tomorrow?

Not sure how you shim a tire, but on a car that you don't maintain, anything is possible...

Tires are held by Bearings that need shimming, for the rookie here.... If you're inexperienced, just read ! Several posters got it right .... Orcadigital, stay on topic, and stop closet bashing... We are trying to pass information here to the real rc enthousiasts...

Another important thing that is sometimes overlooked is body scrub, both on the tires and the track surface... Check your wheel Wells for black marks, and raise or cut your body accordingly... If the front tires catch the body while tuning, it can make your rear step out violently...

Tires are actually held on by glue...to the wheels. The wheels then connect (through various methods) to an axle, which usually rides in a pair of bearings mounted inside a c-hub (front) or upright (rear). While that will vary, most touring cars work that way, and none of them have tires held by bearings. As an rc enthusiast, I assumed you would know that.

The original poster solved his problem. Telling everyone that rebuilding your car is a waste of time = bad advice, for rc enthusiasts, or anyone in general. Shouldn't you be practicing instead of posting?

The gluing tire days are over rookie ! Everybody here race on preglued spec tires, and I don't have to explain every detail on how to shim them, so they won't wobble.... Maybe I'll have to in your case, but I doubt you'll understand... Your post count is very low I see, and I can guess your IQ....

Tires (and people) sometimes come unglued. It can lead to erratic behavior.
