I've used both. From my experience, I always seem that that the best thing to do with my Super Nitro is to lock the front diff as tight as you can, either by springs or by oil.

Default Its starting to behave well

After Parking lot racing sat nite I'm happier with my Racer2 than I have been in a long time. I have a good basic set up for
Parking lots now. The understeer at speed is all but gone. I can induce throttle off oversteer, though it comes on rather quick and at a very low speed. Thanx Troy on the laying the front shocks out tip, That got me on the way. 24mm foams in the front & 28mm/rear, that helped. Ride height is a little hi, 7mm/front, 9mm rear. But it behaves well. So I can work from there.

LOL. One of the guys in my store, Wilson has toooo many nitros. Z-10/Hyper 10/ OB4/Colt 10/ T-Maxx, then he got his Daughter a Rs4 & his wife a Hyper 10. One person cannot maintain that many nitros!

Tuning question on an RS4 Drift.
Car is new, currently on run-in, has had 5 tanks put through. However will not run properly unless pressure line is disconnected from fuel tank. Removed, it will idle and run just fine. When fitted to tank, rpm's slowly increase until engine stalls around 30 seconds later. Remove line, starts and runs fine again.
Needles are at factory settings, plug is LRP medium, fuel in Nitro X 20%.
Suggestions?

Sounds like either a leaking or clogged tank. I know back in the day, the RS4 tank with the primer was notorious for air leaks around the primer pump. We were switching them out to the Racer2 style tanks which had no primer. But there's still the mystery as to why your car runs with out any pressure to the tank. It shouldnt run at all since theres nothing pushing fuel to the motor.
