    I was thinking 18/54 might be geared too low for that kv and 6s, perhaps 22/54 or higher might have kept the rpm of the motor in check.

    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...

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