the outer tire is having more stress in corners...
you can use harder tires on the outer side. ex: 42 rear outer side, rest is 40
or, you can make a sidewall on the tire with ca, it also reduces wear but having less grip

more camber. If you already have a high value (e.g. 5 deg) then increase the camber rise by adding shims under the linkage on the rear upright or going to a lower position on the inner linkage

also use the stickers that come with the tyres as they help to prevent chunking

no, check shock length, make sure your droop settings are correct. Last week one of my friends set up a car with the front droop settings on the left side of the car and rear on the right.. don't drink and assemble boys...

I am trying to install the futaba S9452 for steering.
When using the S9451 the manual says to use the H0362C and H0362F spacers.
Shall I use the same for the S9452 ?
How about the grommets and those brass tubes that come with the servo. Shall I use those also?

got a too loose sidebelt when runing the 24t pulley?

just flip the tensioner (mtx4 came like that) and switch from 3x8 flat head to button head,
the carbon part will now be in front of the engines backplate allowing to have enoug tension to use the 24t pulley

Is the 3-racing 4mm chassis any good?? I have heard that the quality of some 3-racing parts is poor. I don't know about the quality of the chassis??

don't get the 3 racing chassis it is not milled down to keep the bulkheads and mounts at the right height and the quality is also poor, the best 4mm chassis to get is the kawahara one it is milled and of the highest quality

I am trying to adjust rife height and I want to set the front at 4mm and the rear at 5mm.
However I can not lower the car that low. I can go as low as 7mm.
How do you guys set the ride height that low?
Do I have to trim the tires to a smaller diameter?

You need to check the lower spring retainers on the bottom of the rear shock. The flat looking retainers go on the rear of the car. check your manual. You can not reverse these. Hope this helps
