Well, first I make sure I have everything in the can that it is going to run with, battery, electronics, ect. Then I set the ride high, then the droop, then off to the tweak station we go!!!!!!!! Start with one end. make small adjustments to the shocks, all of them if you have to get the end you are working on to balance. Then do the other end the same way. Then check the other end to see what the other end went to and fix it. Recheck your ride height, make sure it is were you want it still and after that your ready to hit the track. Some cars are easy, JRXS, some are not so easy, TC3 rtr with shocks with shims. You get the picture. I hope this helps.
