Looking good. try adding some stick on wheel weights around the rims, (inside) get some split cell battery packs and strap them to the front axle.
Mem. foams infront work good too. Try adding heavy weight oil in the shocks as well.

I have about 5oz of weight in each of the front tires and 2 in the rear. I moved the stick battery under the battery plate to help the cog....it works very well. I do need to lower the ride height next.

dont take the foams out thats not a good idea... i would however cut the foams and use stick on lead weight

Also get some softer springs and a stg2 link kit for it.... you will be AMAZED!

dumb idea taking foams out

yeah but when you do that it sticks better but also it could stick to much and really mess you up. At a comp last weekend a guy was running with out foams and 3 or 4 times he had to take a repair because he broke the drive shafts.

I have super soft foams in now...I will keep them for the simple fact that mounting the beadlocks is no picnic.

After my last outing, I realized that my rig was a little on the tall side and liked to flop over. I read countless posts on adding tubing and/or springs to the inside of the shocks.

I found a broken toy rockcrawler that I bought a couple years ago, ripped the shocks apart, and used the springs. They are pretty long, but soft. Compressed, they are just a little longer than the stock spacer in the shocks. Just goofing around in my garage, it seems to be much more stable, and the torque twist I had seems to be gone.

Here are a few pics...
