Default Micro T very hard to drive

sup guys...i have a stock micro t with bearings....i adjusted the gear mesh and loosened the gear case screws and put grease in the diff and my micro T handles very poorly......

It keeps spining out if i turn the steering fast.....its like the diff is still on the tight side....what should i do or is this how they handle since they are so tiny and hard to control???

let me know guys

Thanks

Check and see if there is any hair wrapped around the axle.

Set the steering throw or quickness on the Tx.

Did "goob" the grease in the diff? Is it a thick viscosity grease? I redid my diff with to "thick" of grease and had the same issues. I ended up using dry teflon lube instead and works great now. With a nice free and smooth diff the lil' car turns like a charm for me. The diff and tranny can be touchy, then again look at its size.

Anyone have pics of that late model body on it yet?

Micro-t handles exactly like the Mini-t. It has a tendancy to 'hook' at the apex of the corner. This is due to rather poor geometry of roll-center and lack of Ackerman. We cured it with the Mini-t by running absurd amounts of toe-out at front. You can also wrap tape around a portion of the front tires. Start with about a third of the tread covered (inside third). It's a quick and easy fix. A strip of electrical tape works fine.
