    Revo flipping when turning

    Hey guys,
    I have my revo broke in and tuned now. My problem is that it wants to flip over alot. I have the p2 rockers installed with silver springs in front and blue springs in back. 50wt oil, and the pushrods in inner setting. I did have some pre load on the springs (for ride height only) i have since back off the pre load ( havent ran it w/o pre load).

    Any other suggestions ? I dont race i just bash. Its a monster truck i thought it could be higher LOL. I love the speed but im willing to give up some speed if need to.

    Before (with pre load)

    With the center of gravity high above the centerline of the wheels you'll have to take that into account when turning. So:

    1. Lower the ride height. Or
    2. Slow down before cornering. Or
    3. Install Traxxas or Tekno sway bars.

    I love my Tekno anti-sway bars. I don't know how they compare to Traxxas ones but I'm sure there's info on this forum.

    IMO, the LT rockers aren't needed to have fun bashing with this truck. I have mine setup so when I land a jump the chassis just barely hits the ground. This avoids unnecessary stress on the suspension during hard landings.

    Get the Traxxas shock valves to better be able to adjust damping/rebound characteristics. To me it sounds like way too stiff of a chassis now especially considering the weight of the truck. Swaybars will not help if suspension is set up too stiff.

    Try cranking in some negative camber on both ends, or at least no positive camber.
    You also might lower it.

    They do pretty good on dirt n gravel, but i dont like them on pavement. The talons o had on it ripped a chunk open. They seemed to be good for pavement n dirt, but i think the gravel is what tore the tire
