I have the impression that Roborat is talking about rubber tires...

You need to ease (round) the corner of the wheel that's rubbing on the shock end. I use a deburring tool and here is a LINK . Even after doing this, the wheel will still leave a groove... just not as severe. Hope this helps.

Try running the medium set up from your manual..... That is what I run for indoor asphalt rubber tire racing.

Baker18 - Yes there are screws on the car you can remove to give the car more flex. This may help you car some, but if your car is very loose it maybe the tires you're using or the surface you're running on. Post on here what tires you are using and the kind of surface you're running on also very important is the surface preped with anything like sugar water,soda,VHT, etc.... or is it Carpet.

As far as the screws go if you bought the car new it comes with a fantastic tunning guide with a diagram on how to increase the flex by removing screws. If you got the car second hand check out Xrays website you can download the manuel and the set up book

I hope this helps

If you are running rubber tire/asphault, take out the inner 4 screws on the top plate, the four inside screws on the bottom in the center of the rear trans housing, and the two in the center on the front trans housing. Also, don't run the center brace or any of the posts for the top plate. Hope that helps.

Parmas(Pink Magenta) followed by Jaco (Dbl Pink and Pink/Orange). I myself have never run them, but lots of guys also run TRC foams. Paragon works just fine. Full rears and inside half of the fronts.
