Default Handling Prob

Hi It is ok going into the corners but it is when i exit them, as soon as i hit the throttle is spins like a donut, any help,

my setting are :

Toe in: Rear 2* Front 0*

Camber: 2* All round

Caster: 90*

Shocks: Quite stiff


Also my car wheel spins off the mark so how could i cut down the wheel spin to gain more acceleration.

Need help?

Run atleast 3 degrees rear toe, and 3 camber up front at 4+ in the back. Also try running reds all the way around with no rear droop (remove the screws) and 4 up front.

Try the diff settings, run the front diff tight to 1/8th turn out, loosen the rear diff to about 1/4 to 1/2 out. Put less droop in the car try maybe -3 to -4 droop, front and rear , 0 droop will give you less traction to the rear of the car.

bbntc3 is spot on with the diff it sounds like your diff settings
is off. adding a rear sway bar will also help
