is there any equipment or accessory in the market which functions as a traction control system....like an ESC with an inbuilt traction control or an external module....please dont mention the slipper clutch as a substitute as ive spent a lot of time trying to make it work.
Thanks.

The slipper is the ideal component to function as traction control. If you're getting lots of wheelspin, add some negative expo into the radio if possible. The ideal thing to do would be to 'train' your throttle finger....

Slipper,and specially in your case,better tires.

Mugen Seiki Rules



What surface is it being driven on to require traction control? High end radios have the feature, I think. I say don't bother. Get better tires.

for good grip right set of tires is the key
and for tc, the only real traction control is the throttle finger .. some prefer using it and some don't  i think some escs can be programmed to hv tc but all high end radios have tc .. in 10th scale there is slipper unit which works great when set correctly .

You can use expo if you're getting the power on too soon.

I suppose you have the stock ESC so I won't go into Punch control, start power et cetera.

IMO, the TC is a gimmick, just like ABS. ABS is possibly useful only on nitros and even then, it's used very rarely.

Do note that a soft compound will wear out earlier. I would suggest a medium. Do you have the EZrun ESC as well? If so, turn the punch down a bit.

Deep treads with soft compound works best,trust me,first hand experience on this with almost exact same car man, i'v been running the same setup for quite a long time now.
BTW suraj,i'd suggest you DIY and build one strap of your own,its easy,and buying a new one would an expensive waste of cash.

It should have a button near the power switch that you can program with.

Check your manual. That should help. I admit, it's a pain programming with that tiny button.
