Ft shocks ..
Blues springs,
30w with #2 piston,
mount the shock all the way out on shock tower & inside on the bottom of the arm,
short camber link & 2 degree`s of camber
30 degree caster blocks,
1 oz of lead in ft .
arms level

Try mounting the battery all the way back in the battery tray.

rear shocks..
sliver springs
30w & #1 piston
1.5 degree anti-sqat
short camber link( inside hole on hub) & 2 degree`s camber
mount the shock in the middle on the shock tower & outside on the bottom of the arm.
Rear dog bone level

with out knowing what kind of surface you are running on ...

try using losi silver (wide) with 3/4 rear foam insert( try out well worn fts .)
try using losi red taper pins in back bomb 1 foam insert

You sould try spraying your rear taper pins with motor wash & put in plastic bag for 5 minutes... Then grip - um & put back in bag for a while( 1/2 hr) than run -um. Sometimes you will need to break the tires in for a pack or two...
Just grip your fts...

Tell me how you like !!!
Hope this helps...
