Front: 2 deg Camber, 2mm droop.
Rear: 3 deg Camber, 4mm droop.

Body: Original Stratus with the wing in the middle hole.

Thanks,
Try 2mm and 6-7mm droop. Worked for me.

Also try increasing camber even if it does not wear properly.

TRUE THE TIRES DOWN!

No! It will definatly cure the problem!

Ok heres a more technical answer...

AMG was correct. A stiff suspention setup will make the problem worse.

Traction roll is induced when the CG (centre of gravity) is high and the roll centre is low. The roll centre is the point that the car rolls around and dependant on the geometry of the suspention parts.

The bigger the gap between the two, the bigger the roll moment. Reducing the CG is the best way to combat traction roll but the most difficult. You can increase your roll centre by increasing the angle of the upper suspention link.

Modern RC cars have a low CG at the front and high at the back giving a stable car but this will give excess front grip on the outside wheel into a corner increasing traction roll problems.

Soft suspetion at the front with the stiffest roll bar and soft at the back with no roll bar will likely help

Default Traction Rolling

Guys;

I've got some stuff ordered and if it arrives by Thursday, I'm going out to practice and try some set-up changes.

Thanks,

I ask the same question as removing them really improves grip.

I dont think the kfactory box will fit the EVO without mods.

I think the Mugen MTX3 cover does fit however.

This is the Mugen part you require for the radio on the EVO.

"Mugen Seiki (#T0303) Radio Mount Parts For MTX3"

I got mine from Lam at Harmony Model Co. Drop him an email and let him know what country you want it sent to and he will give you the price including EMS shipping.

ziggy 12345, you can try the one from Team Magic that come in two colour choices, black or purple. The Trinity receiver box can also be used but both types need some cutting and drilling.
