Hi Big Rigg,

The lasers are in the mail

Tires are RD Logics transparent blue ... I think they are made from silicon so don't think they would work too well.

Hi there guys,

Ive come across a problem with my ta05. At my local track at the end of the straight is a sweeper and when i enter the sweeper the car seems to spin out. It also happens when the car gets up to speed and i enter a corner. I thought maybe i need a bigger wing on the rear? because the one on it at the moment is quite small. Do you think this would help? or is there something wrong with my current set-up. Also this is for modified racing

Cheers, Liam

Shift - you can certainly look at another body style or wing for handling issues, provided that your suspension setup is basically sound. Some years ago I was having the exact same problem coming into a sweeper. Switched body styles and presto the car was glued. (too bad my driving was and is still bleh )

I dont think its the body as most people at the track seem to use it. ill use a bigger wing and see how that goes.
Thanks for the help

I'd say double check your droop settings....you probably have too much in the rear or it's uneven side to side.

If you're wiping out on-speed in corners your rear tires aren't getting enough grip compared to the front.. you need to either soften or take out the rear sway bar (if you have any), or soften the rear springs. Your rear droop should be 2mm or so, not too much or else all that weight will transfer forward to the front tires, making you spin out as soon as you slow down to take the corner.

Lastly, if that doesn't fix it, stiffen the front springs. What spring combination are you using now?

I wouldn't be overly concerned about the wing size. I NEVER tune with the body. I would say go back to the box stock setup double checking droop, camber etc...and you should be golden. Are you running oneways??

Thanks guys. At the moment im running yellow springs front and rear. yellow swaybar up front and red on the rear. also i am running a front one way. Would maybe a spool be the way to go? ill check droop settings and set it to 2mm.

Liam, does it happen when you were slowing down? or when you were still full throttle?

Once again check your droop...especially with a oneway...they tend to amplify suspension problems... I would say add some front droop too.

If the car handles ok everywhere else. then it probably means too much weight transfer to the front when you are slowing down.

I know Stephen will tell you the opposite, but less droop (less down travel) at the back will help as it'll make the rear end not lift up as much when decelerating

Keeping everything else the same and try this alone first.

The front one-way certainly cause a spin-out when off-throttle.. rear tires lock while the front keep going.. try the spool or diff if the track is tight enough to need brakes that much.. beyond that, stiffen up the front springs (blue/whites), keep the yellows in the rear, and take off the rear swaybar, see how that goes.. and keep the droop at the rear to only a few mm's.
