Perhaps it's not spinning out because the tires are too grippy. S compound is a pretty soft compound. Does it feel/look like an electrical problem? I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "stutter".

thanks for the reply . i`ll try to explain , in a high speed sweeping turn you can hear the rear of the car shake or bounce . i can hear the body jigle and bounce on the posts . when the car exits the turn the noise goes away and the car sounds nice and quiet . it is not an electrical issue . it seems to be a traction issue maybe too much ????

Yeah, since you're using s compound tires, it's probably grabbing at the pavement due to high traction. Putting small pieces of foam on the body posts between the body and lower pin helps with body rattle.

Just finish M05 Pro build, with 17.5 for TCS Mini Pro racing.
I run S Grips or A hard and softs.
TRF shocks 50wt/50wt 3 hole
Blue/Yellow springs
camber front -1 rear -1
ball diff
cvd
1.5 rear tow
o front tow
pinion 20t

ive heard of red dot silver cans but opted for brushless for less hassle.
