I am going to try this first
Front = Go to stiffer shock spring, stiffer sway bar, heavier diff fluid. Change toe out towards zero. Raise the ride height of the front. Decrease Steering. Go to lower traction tire. Increase front droop. These things tone down "Steering" Traction

I'd like to get one from maxamps but the price seems alittle high.

and do I need a LVC? If so which one?

Losi8ight, Change 1 thing at a time so you don't get "lost" doing the set-up.

TEX1 nice write up on set-up.

Where do you guys measure the droop from?

Chassis on blocks then chassis to the lowest tip of the arm?
Chassis on blocks then chassis to the center of the axle?

Or is it tires on the car and lift to find the point the tire leaves the bench, doing it this way is the only way i can see that would account for the difference in diameter of tire and wheel combos.
ie size differance between a step up a losi wheel (large wheel and big tread) and inside job on a proline (small wheel and lp tread)
