Anyone have a good asphalt set up for the x with exotek lipo chassis? It actually feels good but there is still quite a bit push. I've run Jille's basic out door set up with losi oil 40f/35r otherwise it's the same.

I haven't run the exotek but I found the germany worlds setup better than the base asphalt setup with the X. The only thing I changed was the height of the camber links which I used 5mm/4mm same as the base setup because lower was a bit hard to drive.

Here is what I ran on the GB parking lot, I thought it was very good. Only things to note, you can go up on camber if you want to, I was running less to try to avoid the "ring of death", I have the 0.5mm hex spacer all around. And finally, go up on oil a little (500-600) if its hotter, helps with consistency. Otherwise this is a good balance, can over or understeer if you drive to aggressively, you have to be smooth

You can usually tell on the setup sheet by the location of the bottom shock holes. You have to flip them to get the either/or location.

Looking at the front of the car head on, the front arms are positioned so that you have the three holes facing out and he is located on the outer hole. Looking at the back of the car as it faces you, the arms are positioned so that there are only 2 lower shock locater holes facing out and he is using the outer hole. Hope that helps.
