Had the same problem with mine until I added wheel weights.

I put 3.5 oz. of lead stick-on weights in each front wheel and the problem ceased.

links are supposed to be on the outside according to the instructions. i moved mine to the inside temporarily with shocks on the outside. spring clips rub slightly but no more tire rub. I am installing the delrin skid plate from TCS. do I keep the links on the inside or move them back to the outside?

good call on the links I am new to crawling and am still having a hard time getting a grasp on some of it

Any good ways to lower the cg while maintaining stock batter location (its only temp but flipping over all the time is driving me nuts) I added almost a pund of lead on the front axle but its only hleped a bit

I was going to start a seperate post but hopefully someone here will answer what is the benefits, downfalls to having the stock chassis over say the tube chassis where the shocks are more vertical i know i could build one easily but the questions is should I or should i stick with stock

Mount the battery under the stock location. Use zip ties to hold it. Slide it back on top of the transmission, just be sure not to hit the spur gear with the battery. It will help until you can get the saddle pack. Also, switch the links and shock mounts. That is how mine is set up right now.
