Could that be the problem with my Surikarn when it traction rolls?
The surikarn isn't Serpent, that is why it is happening... if you have a serpent that does it... you either have tyres that 'suck' or you have radio gear that is ugly... or you have non-serpent aftermarket parts in your serpent.... This is if you have gone through all the other setups... only joking

On a serious note, though I acutally cured my traction roll quite easily with a anti-roll bar in the front. But I suppose I could have also raised the roll centre - how much in "mm" is enough to raise the roll centre to make some difference normally?
I need to put some spacers under the front suspension mounts of the EVO 3, as there is no other way of changing the roll centre


Julius, we need an electric version of the 710!!!!

D, I've been doing that quite a bit here because the kerbs all have a gentle slope. Either I take off or the car slowly goes over two wheels. Hey! If I try hard enough I'm sure I can do those trick driving that stunt drivers do on two wheels!

Sorry, I think they are the 5x3 or something, one needs to put them into the shock with the o ring to compress the o ring to cause it to seal better and prevent it from leaking, it was mentioned about 100 pages back, but it has become too time consuming looking that far back. Do you know what I am talkingh about with regard to the shim?

4X6mm.. most likely you need the 0.2mm but sometimes 0.3mm. I believe Tamiya and Take Off made that precision shims at that size. Other brand might be Yokomo.

They both carries the same part number. Just measure the thickness, if more than 3mm, then it is the new one.

Hey Julius... this ones for you...

An african pilot flying for SAA is on final aproach at some airport he cant pronounce, while approaching the runway he suddenly remembers the landing gear and reallises that that may be the reason for the screaching from somewhere in the cockpit, but he doesn't know where... lands the plane and slams on the brakes and full flaps and the works, the plane just about sitting on the nose comes to a stop... he says to the copilot... "Sipho, you know, this is the shortest runway I have ever seen, but sheesh she's WIDE!!!"
