Default FIRST IMPRESSION 6s 2200kv

Here's the set-up.

Ofna GTP2E
2200kv castle creations combo
6S 5300mah 60c
23/51

First time out with this car, previous car was a 1/16 Mini Revo 3S at 62mph, what a huge difference. so after about 5min getting use to the car came the first speed run attempt at about 60% throttle i punch it and this thing just breaks loose and starts to go side ways, drifting ending on a couple 360 turns but it did not flip, so i look at the gps thinking it was going to read maybe 50mph but no a stunning 72 with no traction at all. Did some drifting motor temp was at 128 degrees. on my second attempt the rear tire blow up and flip the car over, nothing happend but f!!! i just spend 2-3hours prepping and painting body. So i need to get those GRP tires and some stiffer springs, where do you guys buy those? Overall i think its a great car and handles well with the right tire on a good pavement. Any ideas for improvement?

that 2200kv motor might be a tad too much...that ofna is too light...i have that motor on my revo-e...and it just rips the diffs apart...i'm surprised that that ofna diff is holding up...

i have a dm1...and in that thing i'm gonna run a t8 2650kv for normal runs...and gear it up with a x812 for high speed runs...my only hope is that i don't tear the diffs apart...i can't imagine the diffs being any stronger than the revo...

Car just looses traction, thats with the stock tires. just ordered these:
RED SPRINGS http://www.ofnawarehouse.com/product...oducts_id=1333
GRP TIRES http://www.brucknerhobbies.com/GRP%20Products.htm

Havent really gotten any help with suspension set-up so i guess its going to be a trial and error type of thing.

ur gonna run foam?...there's this thing called steel belted tires...as a matter of fact..i'd get these... http://www.sweepracingusa.com/18-GT-...et_p_265.html#

and if it's traction u want...try the slick belted soft compound...

and those medium springs looks like they'll work just fine...it's a light car and ur not doing any hard bashing...
