It seemed like it did. Although that was on asphalt, and everywhere I went after that me and the car did not get along well.

I should have my rubber tire on concrete setup done this weekend. Done at least that I feel like it could help somebody else. The track its based on is kinda weird. Its high bite at times but can go to low bite pretty fast (the joys of concrete). But I'll have it posted on Billy's "LawtonLosi" site by monday.

i'd suggest that instead of a faq site you use some wiki software, so people like myself can contribute directly.

This is what I know also. So far I'm not getting enough steering doing this.I'll try Angry Asians setup but I think that will make the rear end very twitchy.
Thanks miniracer. It'll be easier to measure the length of the grub screw per arm though but i'll try that.

If you are going to be using stick packs for awhile, go with the Deans connectors. They can handle the heat that is caused by the amp draw from the speed controller to feed the motor.
