Default Need opinion please

I just put a set of the Multi Stud tire and wheel on all corners of my Stadium, it sure did make it alot lighter my problem now is that the front tires grip so good it causes me to flip everytime. I thought about grinding the studs all the way from the outside of the tire to the middle that should give me less traction, i am open to any other ideas.

I would crank down the allen key pins on the control arms to lower the truck, that way you will bring your center of gravity down. You could get another pair of less agressive tires for the frt and save the other tires for the rear. Cause later on you will wear the ones out that are on the back now. Also you could try adding a sway bar to the frt, provisions are there for one.


Can I see some pics with the body on????

Lower the car a bit that will help a lot, a few mm's can make a huge differance.
When it is still flipping over you can change the rollcentrum. Adding some 5mm bush between your upper wishbone and the hub/upright. Make sure to use a longer bolt so you won't pull the thread out of the hub.
This change highers your rollcentrum making the car to tilt less in corners, it will also make your car more direct and reactive.
Good luck.
