Heng Long Leopard A5 throws track

Hi Forum,

is there some secret sauce to this- I tensioned the tracks today and then took the unit out for a run and it seems to be throwing tracks. any pointers to the correct way to tension tracks and experience pointers

HL's don't come stock with tensioners, how did you tension them? Remove track links? Are you running plastic or metal tracks? There should be a little slop. Did they throw tracks before?

I'm no expert, if you haven't already tried you may want to ask at rcuniverse tank forum and rctankwarfare forum as well:
