Default Traction rolling. Asphalt Slash.

First post. Hoping to dial this truck in.

Truck: 2wd slash. Lcg, rpm arms and towers, TRX big bore shocks (60wt two hole front with 1/8" internal limiting, 1/4" external limiting. 50wt two hole rear, with 3/8" internal and 1/4" external limiting. Losi blue springs rear, losi greens up front.) Jconcepts Smoothies with no traction compound.Grey inserts front, red inserts rear. Castle 4600 geared 16/86 for local track.

Camber is -2.5 front and -3 rear. Front toe is +3 combined. Rear toe is stock (-3 iirc.)

Track: sealed black top with owners special concoction of sticky. Biggest problem comes on when track gets to about 115 degrees and traction goes through the roof.

I'm traction rolling at turn in to mid corner.

Any ideas as to what might reduce traction roll? Yes, I know...slowing down, but I'm coasting about 30-40% of the track as it is.

TC's and 4wd rally's are turning sub 20 second laps, but I could muster is about 8 seconds slower yesterday when I'm normally only about 4-5 seconds behind their best lap times.

You could try lowering ride height , stiffer springs, or sway bars.
I found these but only on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hot-Racing-T...3D182004852362

It's low...

I've got the stiffest springs available on the back, and second from stiff on the front.

The HR sways are a last resort. A buddy (who has my twin truck) tried the sways yesterday and it really didn't keep the truck on the ground anymore than mine was without them. My truck stays extremely flat.

I'm hoping it's a leverage type roll centre problem to be honest.

I'll be lengthening my camber links front and rear and I'll report back.

Stiffen the front up. Take some dual rate out of the radio. Harder tires, etc.

Is it possible to swap out wider hexes or use wider wheels for a wider track?

Also, lower your roll centers front and rear.

What's your ride height?
