    wide trac kit?

    Will installing the wide trac kit make the truck not flip over as much? I dont bash really hard. Just mostly drive around neighborhood jumping of off curbs and jumping flowerbeds. I was out driving it today at the park next to m y house and it seems to roll over alot more than my redcat caldera truck. Just trying to figure out how to reduce rollovers. is the truck still bashable with widetrac kit installed?

    the biggest thing that help me was lowering the suspension. IMO if your gonna be bashing only i would suggest doing the jato mod over the protrac kit. thats what i did and its working great

    Yes would love a little more details on the Jato Mod, as I was very close to buying the Proline Pede 4x4 Protrac kit.

    there are 3 ways to do it that i know of. this is 2 of the ways but i did it like the pics at the bottom by putting tie bars in the arms to make a somewhat custom arm. its tricky though, you have to get the drill holes perfectly straight or the arm will come out kind of twisted.

    and maybe try the sway bars they will help out too, but you can not use them with the jato mod

    i forgot to put these in my previous post. they are the tie bars i used. they can be found in most LHS's
