I am currently using standard Kyosho " green " shock oil within my shocks .

Yesterday , I was kind of doing the real race cars " warming up tires " method - where they sway side to side .

I did that on my GP Spider MKII and after a little while , it flipped itself onto the roof !! : O This happened twice . Its amusing but embarrasing !

Whats happening ? Its a perfectly flat smooth surface . The springs are standard . Should I change my shock oil to Associated ' s ? Which WT should I use ?

Thanks ! : D

You ' re getting too much side bite , or traction . You can stiffen the suspension and keep the existing tires , or go to a slightly harder compound tire .

BTW - the standard shock oil is about 35 wt , so you may want to go to 40 or 50wt .
