Unless you put some in the rear, I'm betting you still have flex. With the ADK stiffeners all the flex in the front goes away (which is important because that's where the motor and gears are) but the rear will still flex a little.

If you skip me I can't play!

Heres an older post which explains how I reduced the frame flex:

60% of the time, it works every time!
