    Chassis extension for 3908 frame ? Can't stop wheeling

    Anyone know where I could find something that would extend the fame just a bit? UE had the alumium extension part but they no longer have it instock and I would like to keep the same traxxas frame just because I like how it deflects and keep all the dirt,snow,water alway from all the components.

    Lower it a little? See if you can get the suspension to work for you, kinda the reverse of anti-squat? No idea if it will work but maybe try.

    I think you are right.i need to soften up my suspennsion,sorta went overboard with the stiff springs,70 weight old and too many shock retainers.

    Center diffs are extremely reliable, much more so than a transmission imo. They are putting them in all the truggies available on the market and even the 1/5 stuff running the huge brushless systems. It's held up great to this 1520


    I agree though, your shocks could be a little too stiff and if that doesn't fix it a chassis extension would be an easier way to help correct the problem than going with a custom center diff option.
