When I hear about all of these alternate set up types I honestly question how much faster, if it all, the changes make most guys. The best example was our dear friend Wild Cherry. He had a a host of changes that the "Team guys" were making every week and it was worth 0 tenths for him but his car felt better every week. I really think the best way to keep getting better is to practice and keep your car well maintained. I'm not a big believer in constantly changing things around. Once you have a decent set up I think you should just try to run some laps.

As some have mentioned, the factory manual does a pretty decent job of explaining what certain things do...I recommend if your asking a lot of questions that you look at the manual. Going on AEs website and copying Cav's latest set up is only going to work for you if you drive like he does....or as fast.
I went back to stock and have slowly been making changes. So far I've really just been messing with the shocks, ride height, and camber.

I use a Racers Edge that came with one of the servos I got, works pretty good I think.

Can you please publish these statics, all of the pertinent information about your testing process and the sample size haha. I hate hate hate hate hate the AE plastic horns. When I use plastic, I use the tlr horn. When I use aluminum, I use the tlr horn Also, none of my servos have ever failed do to the alum servo horn. So that mean they never ever break servos. I like my statisics better.
