hey robbie thanks for all the info on the best car around

do u have a low traction set up, i just got my car set up and i tried the dark blue springs all the way around and both front and rear shocks laid down all the way.

if i am having trouble in the turns do i need to put the stock springs back on or what. i have never had a rea; setup with the stock springs before.

im running the front sway flat
rear bar 2.5 all the way at the ends
stock gearing and belts
dark blues all the way around
stock one way and diff oil in rear

i am running very close to the stock set up as far as camber, caster, and toe. but i will try what ever is recommended.

by the way all the info i got on here last week made my car handle the best it had yet!!!

when u adjust the sway bar does it matter if u go to the front or to the rear of the car with the rotation? and what about that cam thing???? thats a real mystery to me.

i use the b ackerman now
and the rear c block i think, i'll change that asap

so it is A block for high traction tracks
B for medium and C for very low

so will changing to the B still help me?

and is the rear bar set right, all the way at the ends?

Are you allow to cut the width of the Front tire. go to 24 to 22 mm.
I found this is the quickest way to reduce traction roll but you need to stay on the driver line otherwise u have loose front.

Yep. I was very tempted to cut them this weekend but then we noticed the traction roll was coming from the rear end. plus with a bumpy track it makes set up really awkward.

When you add more traction to the rear of the car this should help with the traction roll problem because it will cause your car to push instead of having supper aggressive steering.

I would hold off for a few months. The current Li-Po sets use 3.7v cells and a regulator to cut the voltage down to 6v. The regulator are known to fail every so often and when it happens a 8.4v surge goes through the receiver and blows up those lovely digital servos.
There are 3v Li-Ion cells being released now but there are no chargers made yet to allow them to be charged in packs. I believe the Triton doesnt yet have the capability either to charge them.
