What's the ideal settings for the droop for front and rear?

Thx.

I think that the Indoor Champs is definately on the calendar for this year... I'll see what I can do about hitting the halloween race... I'd like to get more running on carpet in so I don't look like such a tool out there.....

RC-Zombies-its rained a lot here too and rained HARD. I know this is not RC related but I just spent big bucks on my foundation-just to have it rain SO HARD that my basement still leaked due to a slow storm drain!! Its like I spent all that money for NOTHING!!! I could have bought 25 Car kits or 40 ESC's or a trailer with AC-built my own RC test track instead and my basement wouldn't be any drier or wetter!!! Man-sometimes life sucks....hahaha!!!

Steve, open your manual and turn to page 32
See the 5 digit numbers right under the teeth numbers... order one each of all of those. My special recommendation for you would be a 95 Spur with a 25 Pinion (don't try this at home kids).

This is the first I've heard of it... now that I have the PRP diff plate... I may not need the new gears...
but knowing me...I'll probably get one sooner or later...
