hmm, i have a hitec digital mg, so i guess it isnt my servo that is doin it. i know people where there arm is like 3mm away from the upperdeck, and they did no sanding, but they said they didnt do anything special, so i dont know what is up with mine

/QUOTE]
1. Softer rear tires
2. Taller rear wing
3. More rear toe-in
4. Use a rear swaybar
5. Softer rear springs
6. Lighter rear diff oil.

I could probably go on and on. These are
Just a few ideas of things you can try. Maybe
if you give a more detailed scenario along
with your set up such springs,tires etc. we
may be able to spot the problem.

Good call. We need more info as to where the rear end is breaking loose and details on your setup.

Since I've seen a few STOCK set up r40's run so well(including mine)......and thats in 60 or 100 degree weather,I'd return that car to stock settings...including the black PROPER LENGTH springs....30,000 diff fluid in back,5.5 ride hgt on 60 mm foams..2 degrees camber front,3 in back....3 degrees toe in rear..0 in front........(I'm running 2...but I like the way it turns)...40 shore fronts....37 or 35 rears......

Truely I would do like Fastharry says and go back to stock settings. Your settings seem pretty far from standard. You really need to drive the car standard and adapt your driving to it a bit before messing around too much.
