    I was wondering if anyone had figured out a way to reduce the amount of pushing the buggy does in a turn at slow speeds I'm trying to reduce the turning radius without sliding rear end around. Also I'm looking to run 29 in tires and was wondering if any of you guys had a gearing setup figured out last question I would like to upgrade the clutch in busa to handle 29 in tires in a woods riding scenario I prefer low gears thanks for all the input.

    To get rid of the Push you need a diff in the rear

    I run 31" tires on mine and clutch mod is a 4.5mm alloy spacers ( 6 off) under the clutch springs = more clamp pressure , But will also end up cracking your cover the clutch slave is mounted in so Upgrade kit would ne advised

    Turning brakes on the front maybe?

    A diff is the only real way to stop the back from pushing in a low speed tight turn.

    You can check/fix the steering for correct ackerman, bump steer and enough turn angle. This will help but nothing will work as well as a differental.

    Correcting the ackerman on my barracuda helped the slow speed stuff considerably. There was little slip when I was idling around, unless the pavement was covered in sand. If your ackerman isnt correct, one of the front tires always slips, reducing your traction on the front end.

    Weight distribution plays a big role as well.
