    Shaking in reverse

    Hello, when I go in reverse at more than a very low speed my tires shake and move a lot! Why is this?

    My Slash does the exact same thing. It's just in the design of the steering. It doesn't harm anything.

    If it's your rear tire's ,make sure your drive shafts aren't dirty and binding.

    Another thing to help wobbling or the "bent axle effect" is balance your tires

    Ok, I thought it was just the design, but I'll try that stuff too

    Front tires shake in reverse because of the toe. Well, the toe and the play in the steering assembly. If you get bored sometime, try to toe the front tires out a couple degrees and try it again. Most likely, the shaking will stop, or it will at least be very minimal.

    It's always a good idea to balance your tires. My Traxxas trucks have wobbly front tires with reverse... I'm not sure why but they all do it. When the bearings are worn it wobbles a little more.

    the front tires wobble on reverse due to the effects of the ackerman type of steering used on the slash and the Rustler. You can go slower but it will never really go away. I tried and gave up eventually. trying to rid the wobble in reverse will have an effect on forward steering so you have to weigh the benefits/loses with it. In reality, how much driving in reverese do you do.
