Default 1/8th NITRO...HELP!!

hey guys... i just recently got into 1/8th scale racing and I have couple quick questions for you experienced folks..I have a Mugen mrx-4

1. I was wondering why my rear foam tires wear out in a cone looking shape.. I was wondering if my ride height is too low or if its suppose to be like that iono.

2. My friend's 8th scale's differential is a bit different from mine. You can rotate his rear wheels freely the opposite way and mine are locked.. i was wondering if i can chnage mine like his and what is the difference with his and mine.. the free spool and all that

3. I dont have spektrum yet but i have a helios radio and digital servos and i dont know why it is glitching...let me know what you guys think

thanks alot!!

sounds like you jumped into the deep end without knowing how to swim.

the tires cone because of the degree of camber.. causing them to wear more on the inside..

you have a solid axle in the rear, meaning that if one tires moves then so does the other.. I'm sure you can get a rear diff for a mrx4..

a locked diff will make the back end want to kick around under power where as a diff will make it understeer more

There is no diff for the MRX-4 solid axle would be better anyway due to the tyre size
