    I am very impressed on how quick and straight your car goes. Is a 4x4 better for speed runs than a 2wd? Do you do anything to slow down the steering? I am trying to build some drag cars, so far I have a couple RJ Speed cars and a 2wd Slash and I need some tips on getting them to go straight.

    Man! That was a great run! I'm happy that it didn't run onto anything when you lost signal

    I know there is limited room but do you think it would be possible to get a POV camera in that thing?

    How is it that the car can go in such a straight line?

    There is too much play (factory default) in my slash 4x4, and it always wonders off to the side when going full speed?

    Steering trim does not help.

    Its a non TSM version.


    Thanks

    I have plenty of slop in my steering also, I guess a proper body with good aerodynamics. and suspension tuning..

    I watched your video you just put out about what you’re running on you slash. I was curious if your drive shaft moves from side to side? I’m not nearly as geared up as you and when I hold my slash and give it throttle, I can see the drive shaft moving from side to side, where it’s even rubbed some of the plastic off my motor mount. Did you have to do any balancing of your drive shaft? Similes to balancing tires?

    Turn your steering dual rate from 100 down into the 30s.....should help tremendously when you need to make corrections while getting up to speed...
