It's at smooth acceleration too. I have to steer the opposite direction to keep it straight.

just set your trim for straight at full speed, there is some play in the steering and when you get up to speed it forces it one way or the other and stays there, I would reccomend getting the aluminum steering arms, less play.

trying out this body!

fit's nice! hope it doesn't lift.

Like I stated above, It's just losing it's play in the steering as the speed gets higher the wheels don't wiggle around anymore they stay rigid.
So the trim that works while moving slow will not work while moving fast, my trim is bias to the left so when I am driving slow my car always pulls just a bit to the left but when it gets up to speed it's straight as an arrow.

no biggie, run your car full throttle and see which way it wants to go then set the trim to counter that.

You can look in the HPI website for the instructions. I've never burned a clutch out.

I used HPI brake off of the 18ss

I did some drag racing in April in the 132 foot track and did 2.4sec at 54 mph with 43/47 spur gears.
This past weekend I raced again and used 37/41 gearing and ran 2.4 at 56mph.

What is causing me to run the same time? I understand the speed due to the gearing.

My sons Sprint 2 flux was faster than mine. He ran a 2.4 at 58mph.

Depends what you're doing and what MPH you are trying to stop from.

The stock plastic brake will melt quick if you're stopping from 70+ mph.
I personally use steel plates with a steel disk, stops me from 90+ real easy without locking up.
Fiber will work too, but I toasted that as well it just glazed over and got shiny and lost stopping power.

Again depends on the speed you're trying to stop from.
