    I’m convinced it’s the higher torque motor plus center diff allowing one set of wheels to spin faster than the other and the tires catching traction while under throttle is worse than the slipper...

    Me too. This is big, nay, huge at least for “more power” crowd. Lol.

    A wing causes drag but also creates downforce to keep the rear planted, something a rear weight bias 2wd car will need.

    That’s just the weight so you just have to find a place to put it. Just different options

    I would spend the extra 22 dollars and get the mamba monster x over the mamba monster 2 if you are using 2.8 tires and running on grass, it can handle higher BEC current if you use more powerful...

    Yeah I would increase the travel bit and allow some “give” in the suspension. Heavier oil is better to slow the rebound stroke.

    One thing people do is they add weight to the front bumper to keep...

    I suspect when self righting, the combination of the 2400kv motor and the center diff is causing one end of the car to have its drive shafts spin much faster and in turn catch traction and reverse...

    I’m curious to hear how those tires work. I tried extended arms on a bandit before and it understeered a lot, perhaps the tires will make a difference.

    Good call. It’s easier to buy a bandit and get rustler parts if you ever want to convert, than buying a rustler and piece together the bandit parts.
