Hi first the radio. GoGoLap makes a RX module compatible with the ASF transmitters. Install that and you've got all the dedicated mini-z controllers available to you instead.

Have you tried the standard options to stop traction rolling?

I don't own an AMZ but assuming you can use the Mini-z AWD wheels (or there are AMZ equivalents) - get a body with wider offsets and/or a lower CoG (lexan windows may help here). Lowering the chassis too.

Gluing your tires, or trueing them may help. Some people also put a little CA glue on the sidewalls when there is too much traction (which is going to be part of your issue).

Depending on the setup options the AMZ gives you you may also be able to adjust the roll centre (theres other threads on here that explain that better than I can).

Dwight. Is it rolling on corner entry or exit. Before you get off the throttle or when you pick it back up?

Do you know a resource I can order GoGoLap RX module board?
I been looking all over the place & came up only TRP Spain which is too costly in shipping.

Ok I have the car running well now. Would like to find another radio. The stock radio has limited adjustments.

That's where I'd go for it. I'm in Australia. Sadly for me shipping from there is 'normal' as opposed to 'expensive'.

So I was in my local hobby shop and saw a radio that might work for the AMZ awd.

I am a GoGoLap dealer and will be placing an order shortly as I'm out of the amazing lightweight Nissan JGTC body that they make. I know that Philip from PN is also a dealer, so he may order too, who knows? Maybe. Anyway, Canadian dollar is sucking still, so all Americans when they buy from me are getting a 10% discount minimum just by being able to buy in USD and converting to CDN.
