SC is short course Its an abbreviation for SCT- short course truck

SC-R is just the name of that kyosho model. like a Ferrari 458, its a kyosho sc-r if that makes sense.

Sc-r is for short course "r" being a short course truck and the r means its better than the standard rtr. (ready to run)

Both methods worked absolutely amazingly. Thanks guys, no more flipping over on high speed turns!

We also picked up a 4x4 brushless and DOOOOOOOODE, this thing is super fun. Lol

The power speed and geometry of a SC can lend to traction rolling in general. As a rule the higher ground clearance on the Slash makes them more likely to traction roll then some of the competition.

Other than shock adjustment and driving style changes you may be looking at some good money to change this. They do have the Low CG kits, but they are priced so that I would personally just get another kit and leave the slash you have stock.

I think a center diff upgrade instead of the slipper on the 4wd Slashes can help you a bit in high traction surfaces, but that will be a marginal improvement.

The center diff is nice, but its rather expensive too, if you do look for one, look at the ebay chop shops that part out new slashes.
