Improving front end turn in

I’ve just taken ownership of a Revolt - seems like an awesome machine. I was surprised how much the front end pushes though - anyone got any suggestions for improving front end grip?

Re: Improving front end turn in

You have to learn how to drive these Redlines. You will find that letting off the throttle will transfer weight back to the front tires and then it will turn. When it starts the turn then you can get on the throttle again to slide the back end or drift it through the turn. It does take awhile to master it. The rear tires are locked together and the car being so light wants to go in the direction that the rear tire are pointed.

Appreciate the info! I only took it out for a two minute drive last night but from the way it turned I was worried how it would handle some trails I want to take it on. As you say probably just a case of getting to grips with the way it handles.

It seems most people use them in the dunes so I wondered if they were setup for that, and if I could space the front wheels or do anything else to get more front end for trails & tracks

Re: Improving front end turn in

Welcome to the redline owners club......Yes, there are some adjustments you can make so it's a better "trail buggy". I've got marginal improvements but these buggies are really more at home in open spaces. you may want to look at the following....front tire should be same size as rear. measure the length of shaft "out " of the shock on front and rear.

Sent you a PM if you would like to talk directly.

How are people setting up the alignment to compensate for better turn in?
