You are running a one-way, I take it?

One of the main reasons is having you brakes set too hard. You can set your TX unit to reduce the amount of servo travel when you hit the brakes. You'll have to read your TX manual to see how you set this up.

Make sure you have accurately setup the car - this is vital to good performance! Don't set something without measuring it very accurately - it simply doesn't work - this is a racing car.

Read the tweak section in the FAQ - it answers questions like "why does my car spin out" - everything is covered there.

Cheers, Mark.

You'll stiil need to setup you TX for your servos otherwise they won't be properly centred and will have too much travel. You have to set these items up for both the steering servo and throttle servo.
If you don't do this, at best you'll end up burning out your servo - at worst your car will take off at uncontrollable speed and you won't be able to brake. You can't do half a job with these cars - they require a lot of time to be setup up correctly - failure to do so will lead to frustration and a big heap of broken parts.

I would also recommend locking your one-way if you have never driven one before.

Cheers, Mark.

The TX is your controller (transmitter). You'll have to look at the manufacturer's website to see if anything is available or go to your local dealer.

Hi Sn4il,

The first 2 or 3 tanks your engine is runnig can be done on the starterbox.

The other 7 tanks there need to be more resistance.

Run in is best done by 10-12 tanks.

If you don't want to run in on track then use a run in bench.
