Obvious question of the day;
Which motor configuration is best for given conditions???
MM3, MM4, RM3, RM4, indoor vs outdoor, etc., etc., etc...
My apologies if this has already been addressed a thousand times

I may or may not have just dropped 5 bills on the buggy + parts lol. Yeiks.

Is the set up out of the manual a good base set up for clay? I am very picky with how my car is set, but want to know a good place to start.

I drive my cars aggressive but smooth. If that's understandable lol.

I have a full Losi buggy spring kit, but also ordered the FT Dingo dkgrns and R Dingo dkblu springs.

Cush's driving style is aggressive, so his setups may work well for you. He has an indoor clay and outdoor dirt setup listed in petitrc's setup database.

Default Battery

I need some advise, I will be running a 8.5 motor on indoor medium length tracks. And wanting to know which shorty battery seems to work well. The qualifiers and mains are 5-6 minutes. Thanks for the feedback.
