Default poor handling

hey, i have a V one RR. pretty much stock.

My problem is that i had a bent chassis, but the steering/handling was fine.

Last nite, i tried to fix the chassis by bending it the other way

Now it handles like a piece of shit. Also, i rebuilt my front diff.


Could a messed up front diff cause the car to handle poorly/go crooked? Or is it most likely my chassis

have you reset your steering trims, setup, tweak?

Hmmm...Buy a new chassis plate...? Even if you just bent it slightly the balance will be way off, right? Just get another one!!

hey, ya, i bought a whole bunch of hop ups for my V one RR a few days ago from rcmart. It's being delivered as we speak =), was a very fast processing(overnight). now i wait for it to arrive.


O and about the front differential, there was alot of play wish the dogbones so i placed a piece of fule tubing instead of the orings in the cups. If i used the o-rings, there was too much play and the differential wasnt even moving. IS this wrong? or is the differential supposed to be like this.

A bent chassis will definitely do it. There almost impossible to get straight again.

sounds like the dogbones are too short, usually when you swap one-way for diff or viceversa you have to change dogbones/cvds too.

It is very hard to drive with a front one way, no front braking whatsoever so the car is very unstable under braking. I don't like them... But then again that's me, some people rave about them. Makes your car very very hard to drive though...
