Or change the throttle response artificially by putting a curve on your throttle channel in your transmitter.

With best overall I mean it's the best performing set, clutch hits hard and the engine spools up quickly.

Spring tension is almost on the loosest part and tried every type of electronic help. Clutch is to good for our track to snappy. in need of a bit more slip.

So basically the yellow pad will just make it worse as it seems that the punch will be greater?

I will also try a softer spring to try and solve the issue, I also believe that the engine bottom end is quite powerful so it could be the cause of the issue.

I am running a .30 gap to try stall a bit the engine and still rips.

You need to find a softer spring so the clutch engages earlier
Try some of the old TM clutch springs .....

Try to find it in the setup. Put some more front drive in it.
More slack in the rear belt and put the front belts tighter without slack.
Remove the play in the front spurs.
Try the steel bell with the yellow shoe,
try the 19 tooth spur in stead of the 18tooth on the tranny axle. But it will wear the spurs faster, use harder front tires with this
with a 4mm split.
put more droop in the front from 1 to 0.
Hope you tell us what you tried and if you were helped. Have fun

Remove play in the front spurs? can you explain better plz

never thought you could use the belt tension for handling purposes very interesting.

19tooth instead of 18tooth the Kevlar one opposite the 1st and 2nd?

Thanks
