    Basic principles are a good place to start. Slow in, Fast out. Brake before the turn (which moves the weight over the front wheels for turning), turn in, then accelerate out (which moves the weight to the rear for traction. I find most times I roll over is because I have taken the turn too fast.

    Don't jerk and turn. That's the worst. Hait the gas when turning.

    actually, the slide in method can be very efffective if the traction conditions are right. Thats how I hit the turn at the then of the main straight at my local track since it is hard pack with a little loose dirt on top, there is very little traction, so sliding in doesnt result in a roll over.

    the other method works better on other turns where there is higher traction though

    I used to wish my truck would do wheelies, now I wish I could stop them.

    You could also

    A. just go really slow through the turn
    or
    B. Lower the suspension all the way and/or put some stiffer springs on the truck.

    never press the brakes hard when its going into a hard turn, it flips super easy.

    Add swaybars, then install softer springs and lighter shock oil to compensate for the coupling between the left and right sides from the sway bar.

    Make sure you have a thicker wieght in your front diffs that your rear if you have to thin of a diff you will just end of spinning the inside wheel when you gas on the throttle coming out of the corner.

    How are you putting thicker weight oil in the diffs? Doesn't all of the oil leak out of them?
    Thanks, DaveO

    apply the turn gradualy. This will make for a wider turn, but U won't flip it.


    (In the T-Maxx manual, go to the "driving your t-maxx section". This tells you how to turn properly)
    well... this is indeed a signature...

    *cough*

    basically what everyone is telling you in a nice way is learn how to drive!lol. no serious once you learn your truck.you will know how it corners ect. every one has different setups. so to say slow down for a turn to me would be like saying go ahead and lose this race. once you let off that throttle for a second.thats where you will be.second. go fast or go home!!

    It's not a bad thing tho! hehe

    On high bite surfaces I run slammed suspension and stiff spings. I also run knobbed tires, so that helps prevent rollovers *less traction*

    Did anyone install one of these?

    It's a "super" sway bar... does anyone know if this is still sold somewhere?
    What a terrible place to put a wall.

    Not a lot by the looks of it, it's just looks like an extra shock and spring like the cen genesis. I don't think it acts like a sway bar, but then again I haven't run one. And I don't see how a sway bar prevents flip-overs, preventing body roll yes, but not flip-overs.
