What rockers are you running? What color springs are you running? What weight oil are you running? DO you have anti-swaybars?

ok i am running 45weight oil in the shocks, p2 rockers in the back. LT rockers in the front, and tekno swaybars

the biggest problem is while turning even at low speeds the inside wheels lift off the ground. So i end up almost stopping for corners.

Well, you need to switch to the same rockers (I recommend P1) front and rear, the middle-weight Tekno swaybar bars, 55wt oil in the front, 60wt oil in the rear, and Traxxas VDP piston set (off-road position) in all four shocks.

Yes, no mixing rockers. And as Chad said, thicker oil and the VDP kit will help too.

Cool, thanks! As I said before, there's no hurry. But glad to know it's coming along.

My Grandfather was a Paratrooper in the 11th Airborne, and served in the Philippines, New Guinea, Leyte Gulf, and was in Japan after the war had ended, helping with the clean-up. Along with many other medals, he received the Purple Heart, and both Bronze & Silver Stars.

My Dad was in the 6510th Air-Base Group, but was never deployed for action.

I tried to join the Marines as soon as I graduated, but I failed the physical due to breaking my neck during a football game my Senior year (broke 2 vertebrae, fractured my skull, and had a Grade-3 [major] concussion with retrograde amnesia [5 days]).

First off, I want to thank you for doing what you do, you have my deepest gratitude...and going back as many times as you have, that puts you way up there as one of the best people I know.

Well, I was a running back, so because of my speed and power, I also sometimes played special-teams (kick-off & punt team and kick-off & punt return team). Anyway, during a kick-off where we kicked off, I ran down to try to make the tackle, and when I hit the guy, with both of us running full-speed (I ran a 4.6 forty), he lowered his head (I was shorter than him) and we hit in such a way (the top portion my face mask & the top of his helmet hit) where all of the pressure & force was focused on my forehead (fracturing my skull), as well as bending my neck backward (breaking my neck), and the rebound of my brain hitting the inside of my brain-case (I forget what that's called) caused the concussion and amnesia. I was paralyzed for a short time due to the swelling, but there was no permanent spinal cord damage.
