    will street tires help

    all my mini revo does is flip all day long.can't count how many times i changed the oil & springs.My mini quake, mini lst and rc18 never flipped this much.I know the motor is on top but the mini lst has the battery and 2 motors on top and it does not flip this much.Can it be the tires are to grippy right now i want back with stock springs and 50 wt oil have to try this set up.

    Umm...maybe go a tad easier with throttle control. Mine does the same if I am to hard on the throttle but if I ease into it it seems to help and I slow down a bit before turning hard otherwise mine will flip over. It is even worse with 3s Lipo then with Nimh in series. I have to baby the throttle with the Lipos.

    Have you tried lowering it or taking the pre load down some?

    taking out preload on my slash was a massive help to control roll overs!

    Lower it, thicker shock oil with heavier rate springs and tires with a lower profile that have been taped inside to help stop "ballooning".

    You seriously need to learn throttle control. Yeah there are some thing you can change to help, but you will never be able to turn on a dime at high speed with this thing.

    Mine only flips when I do something stupid like try to turn too sharp at speed or mash the throttle too hard coming out of a sharp turn

    the problem is even when you go slow the rear tire lifts.

    Are all of your shocks ok?
    Do any droop more then the others?
    And what about battery pack placement, are you using just one, and on what side? Maybe throw the pack in the other side and see if it still lifts.
    But otherwise, it shouldnt lift when you go slow, atleast i dont think it should.
