I wish people would stop posting that dam petit link... Yes we know there are setups there, THANK YOU. But has anybody found some good shock, camber, wieght placement settings that really feel good with a mm4 setup on various dirt conditions, other than whats on petit?

P.S. this was not ment to offend anyone, petit is a very useful tool. But anymore when anybody asks about setup, up pops that darn link instead of somebody saying yeah I did this and this and it really worked for me on such and such surface...

Happy to say that my buggy was pretty close to dialed and I only lost to first due to my over-conservative driving.
Congrats... I still have mine and the 4wd... are they running the 17.5 blinky?

Nope. It's open class, but with how small the track is a 17.5T blinky is more them fast enough.

Nope runs around 125. I have the high torque rotor in it as well. My FDR is 5.44 and with your numbers your at 6.02 not to far off from mine. I have a long straight and a lot of high speed corners so I must carry speed.

I don't have the high torque rotor. I've never even tried it. I wonder how it would affect the temps at that gearing?

Just wondering if anyone else has seen the new proline body for the Rango?I saw a picture of it in the ifmar championship thread.I really liked the body and went to try and order it from proline but I notice it was not their.do you think the body is just a concept and when will they release it to the public?
Thanks John.
