Have you tried the kit setup? The oils are all very soft and it uses the 2nd lowest RCs front and rear so it's ideal for low-med traction

the setup on this car is almost irrelevant except for corner speed because the car is so well engineered that every setup gets you around. if your car constantly spins out, you have something else going on.

when does it spin? if its exiting the corner, back off the clutch. either less gap or less spring pressure. if it spins when you let off the throttle and you have a one way, don't let off the throttle as quickly or expect to be able to brake.

Where are you located? What track do you run on? Maybe with that information someone on here can lend you some help in person. If you are in the Michigan/Ohio/Indiana area I might be able to help you with your car or let you take mine for a spin to see if you like it. With the winter creeping up on those of us in the north I'm guessing you are from a warmer area.

I agree he should take the car for a spin. Just make sure you bring back in 5 different pieces.


Good job Andy


Pass you soon...

In general, the wider the front the more stable the car will be. if it's loose with that setup, entering off power and exiting a corner on power.. you have a larger problem. is the track dusty? what shore tires are you running?

How are you measuring that rear droop? Is that 2mm to the hub?? If you measure to the bottom of the hub you need more like 4mm.
Can you tell us what track you race at?

you have really done about all you can do assuming standard maintenance has been done (bearings roll free, tweak is reasonably straight).. try to take shims out of the clutch gap and back off the spring so it will not engage so hard.. other than that you just have to drive it loose because your track just doesn't have enough bite.

you may want to look at rubber tires, they have some treaded designs that work well with dust.

What are your sway bar settings and do you have any of the softer Kyosho shock springs ( gold, silver or black)? You may want to soften up the suspension to try and get better traction.
