From what I have learned it could be many things. I had the same problem awhile ago with my old clodzilla 3.

It was cause my center was to high so I relocated my shocks and switched the tires and I did alot better. The tires I used where shaved stock tires of a jugg in front with foams and shaved clods in back w/ no foams.

Try relocating your shocks to see if that helps. Move em down the 4 link farther if there link mounted.

Hope it helps!

slow down first and drive the RC into the turns instead of WOT into the corners with no control. buying a race chassis dosn't make a racer....the driver does. the right setup to fit your driving style, once you have one, is very important but it all comes down to the driver. many many have raced for years so search there setups and see what your doin wrong with your setup and then learn to drive with it adjusting things as needed till you have a balance between setup and driver. :D this applys to crawling too. :wink:

Shag you hit it on the head there -
I had a bud that was big into buggy racing. When I had my TMaxxes years and years ago he and I would go to the track during the week to practice. I wasn't really into racing, just bashing, but we'd go and have some fun. He says to me - let me show you how to drive that thing (referring to the TMaxx I was running) and OMG - with my own machine he B-slapped me big time.
He let me run his RC10 (nitro) and I couldn't even get the thing around a corner - everytime I'd just spin it out from the way he had it set up.
I watched him do this with other peoples RCs too -
It's not the machine that makes the driver, it's the driver that makes the machine.

a little mod i made to my ripper to lower the cg and improve handling was to flip the upper shock mounts so the truck sits like 3/4 inch lower. it nevr seems to want to flip on high speed turns like that.
