Rubber tire/ asphalt setup.
Shocks: #3 piston - 40wt ASC oil - red spring - middle hole on standard front tower, inner hole on arm.
Chassis: F-0 pin brace - 2* caster block - 3 droop - 5mm height.
Camber: Inside upper hole on tower - -1.5 camber.
Bumpsteer: Make steering turnbuckle angle match the front suspension arm at rideheight. Should be .090 in washers if you use a Losi steering block and Losi Ti ballstuds.
Toe: 1* out
Shocks: #2 piston - 40wt ASC oil - blue spring - middle hole on rear tower, outer hole on arm.
Chassis: F and 3+2 pin brace - Losi rear outer hubs - 2 droop - 5mm rideheight.
Camber: Inside upper hole on tower - outside hole on Losi rear hub - - 1.5 camber.
Tires: CS of whatever temperature range you are running, or works well at your track.
Make sure you tweak the car. If the car seems "lazy" in chicanes or switchback turns, raise the spring rate front and rear equally. If the spring rate increase is more than 15lbs, increase the oil weight as well. This setup will work well on a medium to smooth surface with sweeping turns, is neutral feeling, with plenty of rear bite for 19t. You may need to stiffen the rear spring for mod if you lose steering off the corner. For a "pebbly" surface (i am assuming you mean the asphalt is deteriorating, but not dusty or smooth) you can use this setup with a softer insert in whatever tire you use matching the temperature range of the track. There will be notable tire wear with the softer insert. Hope this helps.
...you better run like im booger flickin...
