only thing I couldn't nail down was the back end would slide out from time to time mainly when I would hit WOT going into the straight.
What is your rating on the rear tires. What kind of tire is it also. Is your front and rear already biased for rear traction?

Like I was saying in another thread if your car is loosing rear traction , just try a softer foam....unless your already at that point.

You can go with the softer rear. Spring or Sway. What kind of spring are you running. I have the proceed red and for the little amount of time on the track my car handling pretty nicely , the front would turn well and the rear never came out.

Probably my only downfall was running the Skyline body VS a bunch of stratus's and tourezas. Ill have to get one of those soon, but I really plan on trying to make my car handle as best it can with these type of bodies versus the flat and rounded race ones.

That and have lets see, zero track time or anytime for that matter. Off-center steering and I actually beat someone in the qualifying rounds and my car didnt start until half way into it....

NSX- Sry, but my camera can only film for 15 seconds. It sucks. BTW, I reinstalled everything in the starter box. I'm no longer running that setup. Take a look at this picture here. The only difference is now I leave the battery in the box and use the pegs on top.

You definately want to pick up the HPI Aero2. The handling compared to, say, Protoform, is more precise (but also twitchier). This is because of the shortened front and rear portions of the body. It's definately recommended.

OK found some pics. New chassis, tank and top deck. Looks like it moves the radio equipment around a bit.
