Has anyone else had trouble with the rear chassis rubbing the track? I can't get mine to climb our overpass or make it around our banked curve. We have a Carrera Checkered flag challenge set. Does anyone have any suggestions for what to do to fix this? Here's a pic of what I'm refering to.

Yes, my Fly Saleen also catches the track sometimes (either on uneven sections or overpasses) due to the chassis "spoiler" on the rear. Depending on the amount of trouble it's giving you, either:

1) sand it down slightly

2) trim the fins down a little

3) get the dremel out and lop the whole lot off

I also cut a lot off the back shortening and angling it, and then filed some off the bottom of the back too.

Thanks guys! I'll have to get to work sanding. I just received 3
Saleens. One for me and one each for each of my two boys.
