Or try the ball diff.

Since I changed to the ball diff, I didnīt have any gear trouble. Iīm still on my first ball diff gear. Maybe itīs because the ball diff has some give in it when you slam a front wheel against the track boards. I keep my fingers crossed.

For those who wanted just upgrade instead of buying the new 2018 kit... here are the part numbers:

25867: Suspension holder: 450 JPY (New plastic suspension mount set to attach the CFRP Rear Bulk Plate)
25866: CFRP Rear Bulk Plate: 700 JPY
25865: Alum. Rear Bulk head: 1400 JPY (this attached to rear turnbuckle and to the chassis and sandwiched by the 2 rear plastic support beams)
25864: New CFRP Rear upper mount: 1900 JPY
25863: New CFRP Front upper mount: 1900 JPY
25862: Roll Bar: 980 JPY ( x 2 - you need 2 sets of these for front and rear)
25861: New Alum Knuckle for DCJ - 2600 JPY (you need these to be used for the new Double Cardin Joints as the previous Knuckle will not work)
25860: New Double Cardin Joints - 4900 JPY (Finally! DCJ!!)

Total MSRP: 15,810 JPY ~ 144 USD (OUCH!! OUCH!!! that's like $100 off for a new kit!)

Don't know if there are any places that might be cheaper? As I know that these parts are selling in Japan right now - but in Hong Kong, it is not available yet as of today (including RxMART)

have you tried a wider hex in the front?
the standard is 5mm.. you can try 6mm hex
or you can add those wheel offset spacers in 0.5 per piece to try so it might not roll over so much

(also what body shell you using? is it a tall shell?)

I have the 4 hex with 8mm and my body is blitz like touring car .

the track is indor asphalt whit high grip.
If force a bit on the curve at speed or step a little bit "Track dots" is roll over always.
Besides the hex and body the car is original from the box?

What color springs are you using?

My local asphalt track was just re-paved, and the tracktion has gone up quite a bit. My car rolls over all the time at corners. But when I changed to white springs in front, it doesn't roll over as much.


You can also try the optional roll bars too.

Also try with the hex of the front is wider than the rear like 6mm front and 5mm rear and vice versa

8mm hex in the front? that really WIDE! are the cvd long enough for you to screw in the wheels? also that wide hex turning would be rather difficult no?

As Ted Su said... try the new optional roll bars as well...

also what is your down stop and ride height?
sometimes adjusting these might solve your problem as well.
as too heavy downstop (which limit too much shock travel) would also contribute flipping over as well

You can try to superglue the side walls of the tires, this should reduce traction rolling.

By the way: does anyone have a good setup for medium grip carpet?
