    Truck wanders a bit on high speed runs

    I have noticed that my truck seems to wander on high speed runs either down my street or out at construction sites. Truck is stock. I checked the steering trim and the wheels are pointed forward. I am going to try the push rods on the outer holes tomorrow as well. Any other suggestions?

    Yeah, I mean its not a huge problem, I just didn't know what would be a fix. I just moved the push rods out which lowered it quite a bit so maybe that will help.

    You could try a little bit of toe-in. It will help stabilize the truck some.

    Toe in on the front or rear.

    If you dont have a wing mount i highly recommend that, it will help keeping the rear on track over 40mph.

    Hmm, I didn't think about that. I think a wing, lowered push rod location, some stiffer springs, and maybe some sway bars might help me out a bit.

    Last time i was trying to beat my record, i was spinning out at WOT at 60mph without the wing. And was going straight with it.

    Yeah, I might just be worrying about nothing. I am new to this and I guess I kinda figured you can gas it on the straights and just watch. LOL But, you have to drive it and hold it steady.

    Toeing in the front will make it a bit more twitchy, if you toe them out a degree or so it should calm it down some. Keep in mid that this isn't a "road racing car" and will not handle like one.

    I might just have to practice a bit more. Check out the following vid. I had trouble in the straightaway with the jumps quite a bit. It was hard to see which way the car was wandering so I would hit the edge often.

    does that track have obstacles along the straight.. looks like tree trucks with tires around it... that could be ugly..
    Is there life without a revo in this world........

    Yes! I thought that was crazy. I mean I couldn't go fast there because those things would have torn my truck up.

    Be sure to check your alignment. I was having that problem, but I knew I needed to do a full alignment. After that its straight as can be.

    I set mine for 1deg out front 1 deg in rear and 2 deg pos camber. Sticks to the ground pretty whell.

    I might sit down and do an alignment tonight. I had her up and running down the street with the new lowered stance and it runs good.
