I really don't know what some of the things are called, I know a few like the T plate and droop. Anyway do you think if I take some detailed pics of the car some people could help me with a general set-up? We have a race this weekend and I would like to be in the "ball park"
The problem with Hobbytalk is that you ask 10 different guys and you get ten different answers.
I will help you with a setup guide.
from here: http://rcsoftware.web.officelive.com/tech.aspx
Now, this is how you use the guide.
Think of what your car is doing as it drives through a turn (corner speed)
when your practicing on the track.
Think of a turn as Entry
Is the car tight, free or loose on the three points of the turn.
Adjust accordling to the condition from the setup guide and its easy.
Also, don't forget to have fun
