Here's the setup Donny and I usually run outdoors. It should be a very good place to start.

Also, make sure you do everything on the sheet. Doing half the setup and not the rest can really throw off the balance of the car. We worked for quite a while to come up with this and are still refining it.

The further rear ward the batteries are the lighter the front end gets thus the steering get quicker! But the down side once the rear starts to come around its rotates quicker causing the car to over rotate!
The further forward the batteries the slower the reaction which would cause a push!
