Almost certainly will be one of:

- Swaybar in front needs to be stiffer. If too soft the car dumps over when turning in sharp and you spin.
- Too much or too little caster. Likely too much. Too much makes front bite too hard when turning in.
- It may be rear diff related.

Like manti suggested please list out your whole setup.

Nitro shoes offer a 2mm off set as well as the normal 0 off set

Look on www.kyosho.co.jp The manual is there and the exploded diagram.
Just as required - Thanks

Can you point me to a US distributor who will ship to the UK.

The RR and the EVO are not available here in the UK so no one keeps the bits.

I'll post it Sunday night after the race. I'm going to try a little heavier oil and a little more sway bar up front. I am running the Kawahara neg diff as I did in the RR.

does anyone know what are the parts needed to build the front gear diff? (gears, joints, etc..) and part #'s would definitely be helpful as well

Thanks a lot

Acts as regular differential during slow speed, i.e. cornering.
The Clutch-shoe in adjacent housing will lockup when accelerates and reaches certains speed; hence, acts as a solid axle. All the power is gained to the rear wheels; thus, it enable the car to go faster.
