I believe Keven posted what his droop was but for the life of me I can't remember it either.

As for the Integy pieces, I would stay away from everything except for the servo saver piece. The tolerance is to much and to align the car takes some effort. A friend of mine tried them and he took them off of the car. The plastic pieces will work good. Aluminum bends and then it is worthless.

I've run 1.5mm droop front and rear with Keven's setup and it works quite well. Start there and tune to your preference.

Not knowing the motor or speed control or track size I am going to guess around a 5.0 to be safe for tracks the size of Trackside. Check your temp as you run especially if you don't know how big Trackside is.

Sorry for the late answer. In Cleveland I ran 1.5mm front uptravel and 1mm rear. I would say 1.5 all around is a good starting point and than you can adjust from there.

So i want to get the Manutech lipo tray but if I place the tray in and the battery on top with the battery strap I should be ok? I see on stormerhobbies that Corally makes this tray mount, do I need to get that also?
