I started with that setup but changed mine alot since then. I run on much more bite but even when I on a dry dusty track I eventually changed to what I run now. I found my setup to jump alot better and not slap down if I miss the landing area and my car overall turned alot better for me.
I use #1 pistons in the front with 35wt Losi oil, brown spring, 2b camber link with shock in middle hole on tower and outer hole on arm with 25 degree caster blocks. No spacers in the shocks.
I use #2 pistons in the rear with (outside I use green or silver springs, indoor high bite I use the gray) with 35wt oil. On tower 3rd hole from outside and outter hole on arm. I run shortest wheel base to start and 1B camber location.
Car has been really good for me and forgiving. I do run the slipper a little loose so it slips about 2ft or so. I need to do this at the track I'm at now to keep it from pulling wheelies. I run the Mamba Max 5700 in my car and it has plenty of power. Can't see ever needing anything faster in it.
