Setup? My car has whatever the heck was in/on it when it was dropped on a dusty shelf in my basement a few years ago. I have no earthly idea what weight oil is in the shocks. In fact I can't honestly tell you IF there's oil in the shocks...haven't opened 'em up to see.
Ran the first half of last year with eyeballed alignment before finally breaking down and dropping it on my Hudy set-up station.
The key is to have fun. Make engine noises, squealing tire sounds. The best set-up is one you don't have to fart around "finding", an ear-to-ear smile is the best "speed secret" available.
Oh, this "drop it on the track" system of mine netted a third overall in a VERY competitive club championship. First was a T2-008 that was driven by the best (overall) driver in our club. Second was a TC3 driven by the guy in our club who took things the most seriously. Then me. My TC3 could lap within about a tenth of a second of the T2, but I couldn't drive as consistently. Plus he likes to use the front bumper more than I do in lapped traffic...
