I have the body to the lowest possible point, once I run until half an more. I'm getting lift. And once flipped. The body itself is hitting the front shock tower.. but still need to go lower. Thinking that's why I'm getting lift. You can also hear the tires ballooning and separated. "Bought foams tires "
Looking for some input.
Test 1. Flipped
Test 2.

Looks pretty stable to me. Something as simple as a pebble on a fast run can send a road car into the air. Or a crack in the pavement. What shocks are you running? Please say it isn't those pogo sticks that come in the box. The stock shocks aren't even as good as the ones on most New Bright toys.

I had to create vents in my Rustler body to keep the body from acting like a parachute. I also trimmed the lip off of the tail to help the air just pass straight through and not create an additional drag. Food for thought

Ok, good lol. So how is your shock preload set? Can you lower the front and raise the back a tad? Some of the rear wings are adjustable I think. Is yours? If not, I know you can get ones that are.

You can also try filling in any gaps between the chassis and body in the front. Get a bigger piece of foam for the front bumper and trim it to fit the body as best you can.

The 4tec ones are cheap non adjustable.. waiting on the adjustable ones to arrive. rear wing can move forward about 3 drill spots. But I can try the rest of the options.

have you ca glued the tire sidewalls? . vent holes can help in body.. make sure rear is 2.5x as large as fronts..and get yourself behind some type of barrier. Foams will be tough to stop ballooning. I only use a steel belted tires and then have had some self destruct at 150's

Tires ballooning and hitting the body will upset a car. Also racers will cut away the rear bumper and taillights to allow the air under the body to exit. You will see a lot of road racers cut the rear away as allowed by the rules is whatever class they run. I believe they call the effect of air trapped under the car "parachuting"

Yes sir. And they were definitely ballooning enough to rub the front of the body and foam bumper.

Got a 66mph. But also at the cost of a rock ate the shaft. I'm assuming...
