check the placement of your antenna wire on you rx. it might be too close to something else causing an connectivity issue.

Did you see the compition? There was no way I could catch up with them, so I wanted to start off small. I'm probably gonna go racing this Saturday to try out the 4wd compition. I'm having some major handling problems. It turns just like a stock blitz. I might just get another 4wd truck. Lol. But it depends how it handles when I race the 4wd.

Default Layout update

Pics of day 3. Got track mostly level, raked, 1st pack and drag, and watered. Will be repeating these steps while building some jumps. Should be ready for Saturday.

if it's a 4wd truck, you might as well run in the 4wd class. it will handle a lot better since it will have quite a bit more traction...especially with the motor you have on it. i did notice you don't have a very tight turning radius. i'll take a look at it this weekend and see if we can make it turn better.

track is lookin good ER. thanks for all your hard work on it. it seems easy to move a little dirt around and put the pipe back...but getting the track smooth and packed is tough!!

There is no way to make it turn better, the truck doesn't use turnbuckles, it uses pillowballs, and the holes for the pillowballs are extremely small so the pillowballs have barely any room to move, no way modifying it ether, then every time I jump on the track those pillowballs pop out, I'm gonna try to sell the helion dominus for cheap at the track and hopefully I can get sold, last race the guy that's on the left of your work stand that was selling a bunch of vehicles and he had a losi ten SCTE, so maybe I'll try to get that.
