Congrats to Mike Truhe for his winning at the 2008 Silver state Nitro Challenge race.
Buggy 8ight and GRP engine seems to be the hot setup for most contenders. Congrats once again. Sadly Adam Drake got problem. Sad.

Final result of 2008 Silver State Nitro Challenge

Thumbs up

Bumpsteer?? Ball up will be more agressive when the front end is loaded like when you are slowing to go into a turn. This is positive bump steer where your wheels will actually turn into the turn under load.
Ball down will be better to make the car smooth and easy to drive. This is zero bump steer under load.
Swap them around and look at the suspension and tire angle from the top.
Observe what it does at ride height, loaded and unloaded.
Losi has this dialed in pretty well.

I too run Xray replacement pins in my drive shafts. I use the Xray pin removal and insert tool to get it done. Money well spent if you ask me. I have bought one set of drive shafts since the car came out. I race and or drive at least two times a week and replacing pins seems to take a bite out of the cost of full shaft replacements. It cost about $5 to replace all of the pins after you get the tool paid for.

Even better! The link I posted is good if you sling the pin and lose the set screw and cylinder as well.
