ok, i checked the tweak. my left side is fine but the right side is way off. the front right tire (looking from the back) comes off the ground right away. there is absolutly no pressure on that shock... im guessing this is a problem... what should i do?

If your chassis "flexed" enough to bend a drive staft you may have a permanent bend and it may be at an angle. Your chassis could be slightly bent at an angle ... tweaked. Remove your wheels, place the chassis on a flat surface and check the flatness. Also check the chassis tweak on a tweak board.

Cheapest best upgrade for running on rubber? Change to shock oil to a much softer one.
