    Problem with tipping over in turns.

    Hello.

    I have a kit without body and a tactical.
    When I get to take a turn both on the higher speed.
    then rolls it in said.
    I had a video to replace the shock oli 10 or 15 wt and then this problem would have been fixed.
    This help not for me and this still falls to.
    Know that this is not a bascher is but on video I see there are people with it drifting.
    Someone info here about.
    To the schock beyond the oli nothing is adjusted.

    That's because it's not a drifter.
    It's a trail truck/rock crawler.
    If they're drifting, it's probably on loose dirt or sand.

    WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!!

    Like puzzleluvr100 said, this truck is not made for high-speed agility, but there are a couple of things you can do to make it better.

    1. You are going the wrong way with the shock oil. You want to slow your shocks down to control chassis roll, stock 30wt is what the shocks come with, going to 10 or 15wt will make it roll-overs worse. You want to go to 45-50wt to start, this will slow down the suspension, then adjust the weight from there.

    2. Do your best to limit the weight high. Those fancy-schmancy accessories look cool, but they add weight were you don't want it. A high-capacity battery is great for long trail rides, but horrible for high-speed maneuvers and side-hilling. Consider using a smaller capacity pack. Look at adding weight low, there are bolt-on brass portal covers, hexes, and other accessories for getting your center of gravity (COG) lower.

    I have a revo 3.3 nitro and I noticed mines flipping over when I make turns also, but what fixed my problem was a sway bar kit, I would see if they make a sway bar kit for yours, it may help you out....

    I don't believe anyone makes a sway bar for the TRX4, but it really would not be that hard to rig one up. The problem with putting a sway bar on is that it would not allow the truck to crawl very well.

    Make the axles heavy and lower as much of the weight on the chassis as possible. However drifting and bashing is not what this truck was built for...

    Are you running a 5700kV motor on 3s by any chance?

    I use everything to default.
    If I were in high gear from a stop directly take a turn.
    are not really donuts.
    Is this normal.

    You really have to break the wheels loose to do doughnuts, it is just not made for it. If you run 3S you can get better instant wheel speed, which helps you to break the wheels free. But, the front axle being powered is really working against you.

    Like we all have said, this truck was made for crawling. If you put some time and money into the platform you can get it to perform at higher speeds, but that REALLY is not what it was meant for.
