Oh come on, stick to dirt oval. Dirt is for racing, Asphault is for getting there.

You can use the Losi or even the OFNA dirt oval and use it to turn right. You will probably have to even out both sides and work on the suspension but you can do it.

It has been said to balance the suspension but you may want to look into a 2-speed trans. A large smooth lot begs for a second gear!
