Obviously it depends on the handling characteristics of the car, but it's best to start with the kit settings if you are new.

I recall someone doing green a few years ago, but it did have a very matt finish to it.

The HoBao looks pretty gross in green, that's definitely an acquired taste!

I really like the Kyosho red... but not enough to go through the pain of owning one, or reanodizing my Xray. The orange grows on you

If you using the standard insert in the front block, then this setting will give you 3.5deg of rear toe, which is quite a lot.

Personally, I've been liking having a 0.5 out on the RF and 0 on the RR block, for 2.5 of rear toe.

Thanks

How is the kit carpet setup behaving for you? You should definitely start there.

Have a '16 on the way, but figured my question was the same for both cars, and since this thread has a little more traffic, figured I would ask here.

I'll be running an Orion speedo on my T4, so will have two sensor wire mounting locations, but what length sensor wire are most people using in this car? Need to order a few last items and figured I'd throw a sensor wire on that order.

Thanks!
Seth
