Default jumpy rear

Hi guys, hope you could help me out here. My car is very jumpy on the rear when exiting corners(on power).

Please advise, what is the likely cause of this...

Thanks alot..

Just wondering.

Gavin,

Yes I am part of Father/Son team. Bobby and I started about 8 years ago when he was 10 years old. Actually I have three boys but Bobby is the only one still racing. The oldest went back to sailing that we all did together for a few years, more Father/Son stuff, and the youngest is into swimming/snow boarding and water sports. I have a daughter too but she like boys way more than cars.

I work full time on Motorsports for Dodge so I am pretty busy most of the year with my own stuff as well as work related racing, Bobby works at a hobby shop and goes to school.

This hobby is still one of the best ways to keep in touch with your kids!!!!!!!!!

Ted

Well, you could try lots of things: more droop, softer springs , more rear toe-in, more rear anti-squat, less throttle, lower roll center.

Dennis,

I really screwed up last summer. I had so much fun with my gas cars that I am having a tough time getting excited about this electric stuff, and for sure I hate the snow!

How is your new motor(engine)doing? Gotta get ready for the Nationals, it's only nine months away!!!!

Ted

Or maybe something mechanical like worn/notched outdrives.
