-Rigid axle (or 500000 oil) in the center diff.
-10000-15000 oil in rear diff.
-Ground clearance: 0.8 to 1.5 cm
-3 Rear toe-in
-1 front toe-out
-2 rear camber
-1 front camber
...

Don't forget Sweeps makes very good tires too.

I hear you on the wheelbase. I wish they would standardize it. My long wheelbase conversion was 370 mm. I trimmed the rear ups forward 8 mm! Otherwise I would have had to cut the back end of body off.

I do have to say, straight line stability on the longer wheelbase is incredible. The front end doesnt want to come up like it used to. Turn in seems sharp when I test it, but racing on a track is a different story
