    spinning out on punch of throttle

    My rustler vxl spins out right when i punch throttle from dead stop and I spin out left on a hard brake. I
    believe this is caused from uneven power distribution to the wheels. How do I fix this?

    better tires! correct me if im wrong but you're still running the stock tires right? if so, that is the problem the stock tires dont hold up so well after about 1 week of hard running.

    i prescribe J-Concepts G-Locs for this illness...check the link and your problems will be solved

    When was the last time you packed the diff with fresh grease? Does not take too long for the diff to get loose and the grease in it to break down or leak out of the diff.

    Virtually any grease will work but for the best results you want the thickest heaviest grease you can find. Thicker heavier grease will last longer and give you more of a posi feel to the diff when it is freshly packed in the diff.

    Bad Horsie grease!!! It provides great traction and doesn't leak out as easily as grease.

    My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...
