not quite sure what it is to slow rear end action? We race mod 6.5t, i just dont find my car's rear as planted as other racers cars be it tamiya or not..

Im after rear grip as well as high speed sweeper turn on throttle steering
Gotcha... there is so much that goes into a loose condition. You can try narrowing the rear a touch to lock it down and this will give you more rotation (steering) at the same time. You can also try lowering the roll center in the rear, but that won't really give you steering. You may have to do both to get to your desired state. If your car is close, you'll be able to feel small, small changes... like going one block smaller, front (rf) and rear (rr), or removing .5mm spacers from the axles/hubs. Give it a try... it could also be your choice of body and how you cut the wing.
