Default Another torque twist question

Its seems kind of wierd but im having this horrible torque twist on
my scx10. Ive had it before on my scorpion but never on my honcho.
Is there any suggestions to solve this problem. Im running 4 link truss in
the front and last night I found this mods to 4 link the front using the stoick servo tray seems like its no help at all. Its miserable because whenever I trail the front right side will lift and truck will tumble over. Need help guys thanks in advance. Ive searched but nothing seems to come up about scx10 its all about scorpions.

I had the same issue my rear susp was to soft allowing the rear to squat to much. It was really bad I could hold the front right tire 2" off the ground. I had moved the shocks and shortend up the rear links when it started doing that. Have you changed anything with the susp?

MIne is worse. It will lift about 4 to 5 inches when I throttle from a stand still. I did make the rear links longer a little. I will try to get another shock to see if itll do the trick but I have to make sure im doing the right thing before I start purchasing parts again.

a few quick remedies are mirror the tranny, thicker shock oil in the corner it is twisting to along with more preload on the same shock

I cant mirror the tranny im running summit trans. Ill maybe mess around with the shocks BUT do you guys have a suggestion on which new shocks to get any setup will do for me as long as it works and not limit my articulation too much and get rid of this twist.

It doesn't say in your post but if your battery is in the rear, try moving it to the front. It's not really a fix, more like a bandaid for a larger problem, but it will help some.

correct it doesnt say and my battery is in the rear because theres no room in the front for the battery. The summit trans is huge compared to the axil trans and the motor just gets in the way. Ill try to find a way to mount it up front.

Any links suggestions on what gears. I was thinking get those over/underdrive gears but I dont fully understand them yet so I gotta do more reading. If you can provide me links itll help alot.

heres some underdrive overdrive links, you might find them cheaper elsewhere just have to look around. those are the gears you will need.
