Hi there. I have just recked my stock senton tires and got new ones (Dboot multybite Comp A and B). My truck keeps flipping. Should I remove or add preload spacers?

Does lowering the body actually make any difference to roll? I mean, it barely weighs anything and you can only lower it a cm or so.

Oh yes. for short course, as far as RC cars goes - it's the biggest body you can get. It weigh almost 10% of the car weight, mounted on the highest part of the car so it has quite a leverage. lowering the body post will reduce this leverage.

Try driving the car without a body and see the difference.

And it it is too high, I find I am much likelier to have the parachute effect.

Withy crawlers I try to add as much weight (in functional parts) low on the chassis as possible, and strip weight from the top. Same concept.
