Don't care about TRCR locals. Their track lends a lot of setup advice here too......
Enjoying the coverage.

Already tried to kick me out many times..

Clayton, don't worry ..
Been holding out set up details until after the race for everyone's benefit..

Thought this way we get the refined versions and all the variations from the top cars..

Plenty of people run them in stock locally, I would just say go for it if you want to run mid motor. This might just be in my head, but It really seemed like the buggy came to life when I upgraded to the aluminum topshaft, and got some of the other lightened parts. Honestly mid motor is much more fun for me to drive personally, though I was late to the party as far as mid motor goes lol.

Looks sharp. Where did you end up hiding your servo and speedo wires?

You pretty much just need to get the car close and drive accordingly. Mixed traction sucks and from my experience, even more so in MM.
