    Question An intro to my rc's and a question

    Ok I have 2 - 2 wd slashes.

    1st has lots of rpm stuff and a Castle 1406 5700kv + SW2, proline performance tranny, 2.8 Traxxas rims with trenchers, so nice and big tires, and runs great most of the time. I messed up the ESC programming, had to reset cause it didn't want to run. Also put the SW2 into a mamba case with a fan. So no questions here.

    2nd has lots of rpm stuff , stock tires, Inix Brushless motor 4370kv & ESC (same as HPI flux shot(use the same usb programmer and Hobbywing program)).

    Now my question, the 2nd with stock tires wont go straight on 1/2 or more throttle, is this normal??
    I have replaced most of the bearings, and the slash is not new, and the drive shafts are worn around the pins in the joints.

    Are you spinning the hexes in the rims?

    Do your tires have uneven wear?
    Also check your camber angles

    ^^ +1 camber and toe count your threads on the tie rods to make sure its even on either side 1 or 2 threads will screw the vehicle track up

    best way is to use a tooth pick or a exacto blade

    And then eventually look into an rpm camber gauge
