I also run 3.5 front front and 3.0 front rear block for inboard toe out sometimes if I want more steering and that works too.

I recently bought a slightly used 411 and was wondering where I can find a basic setup. I am pretty new to onroad and I have no clue where to start. Thanks in advance!

Great choice! The best place to start is the Serpent website product page which you can find here: http://www.serpent.com/product/400018/ or here if you have an older 3.0 http://www.serpent.com/product/400016/

http://www.petitrc.com is also a good resource for setups and other hints and tips. This forum is also very useful for the cars.

Just getting back into the hobby and ordered mine today.

I was looking for some Jaco Blue tires to put on it but I don't see many vendors that carry Jaco anymore. Were they bought out?

In the middle of a fast chicane, my car loses rear grip. The rear end comes sliding. I have tried less rear droop but it still happens. Any setup tips?

Im using the standard 4.0 setup.

Maybe a softer anti-roll bar? And/or thinner rear shock oil. I only have about a year under my belt for on-road, but these make sense to me.

At the point the car starts to slide are you on power or off power?
