Been running my X1-CR (brushless conversion) on tarmac recently, it's been ok, but i'm finding the badlands i've got are far too grabby on a bone dry surface and rather than the back end drifting out in a fast corner (which it does when it's slightly damp) it just sticks in and flips the buggy.
has anyone got any suggestions for set-up or tyre choice to keep it planted and help resist side flips.
Here's a bit of 'on-board' footage i shot - showing the problem: YouTube Clicky
Grip roll, also those badlands wont' last long on tarmac...save them for dirt/grass running or they'll be shredded before you know it.
Try something like some worn in crimefighters or holeshots for tarmac, should be a bit more predictable.

Nice vid and quality - I'd say it was just grip roll, have you tried road tyres?
Lowering the ride height, tyres, shocks etc etc will all help - also steer gently and don't yank full lock otherwise it will flip (grip roll).
I'd whack some road tyres on, lower the car and lay shocks down.
old tyres start your car put some sand paper up to them and turn them to slicks great use for old tyres
