Default LD3...losing the backend.

I drive on concrete and asphalt. When I drive and turn corners the backend becomes loose and swings the backend around and makes the car spin out. I slow the car down before the turn but I don't want to have to slow down too much to make the turns. I don't have that much experience with changing diff fluid or know which way to go. Thanks in advance.

I don't know that car but you should be able to hold the back wheels and lift up on the chassis. THe chassis should come up about 2mm before the wheels want to come up also. The front end should be the reverse, holding down on the front wheels and lifting up on the chassis you should not get much movement. Go to the MUGEN MTX-4 tread and at the bottom of page 90 is a link to HUDY for their set up book. Download it to your computer so you can look up things on set ups whenever you want.

try adding toe-in on the rear. that is, make the rear tires point inwards.tis will help get some rear end traction and stop the rear from sliding!

On the MTX-4 not the MRX-4 thread. Page 90 and it is the last post on that page.

The post said here you go and then has the link. I tried to paste it here but it is not working when I do it. Just go to page 90 and at bottom of that page you will see it.
