    Is the preload backed off of the shock springs?
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    If you are running pavement only you could do a 200mm conversion...

    Are you running the stock spring preload setup? i also had this issue i found out the taking the preload off your springs lowers the ride height a lot. springs i am currently running 3.2 1/16 summit springs what a improvement(stock ones are just to soft)
    that being said i will be trying 3.2 rated springs up front and 4.3 in the rear. after all since i tried racing my 1/16 Mustang boss 302 i found a improvement now also take into account the surface you running on, what type of tires you need.
    since high speed iis what you said go for grippy tires like 1/10 sedans use. add some weight if you feel it will help.

    this is what i would do. it may not work for you Trail'N'Error till you get what you like. it may cost some cash.

    Heres a video i found to inspire getting my setup. Where i found my set up: http://www.rctech.net/forum/micro-mi...ly-car-36.html

    in my opinion this is how Traxxas should have set up the Mustang boss/fiesta. it be easy to get a drift and and high speed set up without traction rolling every corner when stock.
