What was the weight differences between the two?

A page or two back the question of traction roll, how to prevent it was asked. When all the "normal" things have been used and sudden flippage still rears it's foul head try these things.
1. Slow down that servo that makes the front wheels a blur.
2. Increase drag brake and reduce steering travel.
3. Soften servo saver. (ntc3s with stock servo saver will never traction roll)
4. Reduce front camber so the tyres cone out slightly.
5. SLOW DOWN IN A STRAIGHT LINE!

That does look nice. I only saw the Five Stars chassis on his store. I'm gonna have to hit him up at the track and take a peek.

Cone out the tyres?
that would make the most contact point even further from the centre of the car... Wouldn't it be better to cone in the tyres so the main contact spot gets more on the inside?

You want the front to think it's as wide as it can be. It helps a little as you set it to cone very very slightly.

Hmmmm . . I'm gonna guess.
Wider "effective" front track will give the suspension less leverage to flip the thing over. I guess it would help contribute some understeer, also.
Do I win the prize?

Not the "levers of operation" theory again.

Yeah, just a little amateur trigonometry.
