    Exclamation Rustler problem not going straight

    I am new here and I have a rustler 2WD VXL. It does not go in a straight line during speed runs, especially when using a 3s lipo. This has become a big problem for me since I usually do speed runs on a straight suburban street so I have hit the curb several times at 50-60 mph. I am using a 1 wheel wheelie bar from integy to stop the constant wheelies I used to have, and Iím wondering if this has anything to do with it. I am thinking about taking it off and putting fishing sinkers in the front wheels or getting a 2 wheel wheelie bar. Is that even the problem, and if so, will either of those work? If not, what can I do to stop it? I have tried using steering trim, but it hasnít worked so far. Thanks.

    Get a dif locker. Forum rules I cant leave a link, but I do believe your planet gears may be to blame.

    If your front tires are lifting off the ground and it drifts to one side or the other, having a one wheel wheelie bar doesn't help. Also don't put weight in the wheels, that's not a good idea. Putting weight on the chassis would be better.

    If you're accelerating really fast, it may be the diffs. You don't have to lock it up as stated above. You can just get thicker diff oil for it.

    It's all personal o pinion.(pun intended)
    Both work fine but a diff locker is my choice
