Thanks in advance,

I do some struggle on 1 track in AZ with acceleration. That is The Nitro Pit. The same track for The Dirt 2010 Nitro Challenge. It is nothing that gets in the way of my driving. I have to use less brake and can more just ease off the throttle. This is where I have gotten t he most gain from the center smart diff. It allows me great off power sterring coming into a corner. Sometimes a tad too much. I need to adjust my springs again, as I am only running two of the four spring inside the smartdiff. I drive a 1.0, and threw in the 1.0 anyways. This really helped my driving though. That is an opinion statement, so some folks may say they don't like it. A couple folks I will talk to here and there don't like the smart diff.

Most of the tracks I run this on in AZ are hard packed.

OK I hope someone can help me some. I know not many people run the 1.0's anymore but I have some questions.

Right now I have my kido's buggy's shocks set up like stock settings. Both upper shocks are on the middle holes. What would it do if I changed her rear and or front shock holes on top to outer most or inner most holes? Like how would it respond?
I only ask cause we have been racing when we can but I still don't know what everything does so I figure I would ask for some teaching so I could learn...

Thanks for any help I can get..

You will have a lot of answers but if you dont try it your self you are never gonna know how really works for you, why? 1.driving style 2.Track conditions 3. set up skills, etc. This is what I did http://www.losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/8...ning_Guide.pdf it helps a lot and is the best tool that you can have in your tool box, you will learn a lot with this guide, also this one http://users.telenet.be/elvo/ and (pick the very first item in the page) http://www.hudy.net/xhudy/products/p...2&kategoria=64 (you can save it to your computer or print it out). If you dont find any answer to your questions here you don't know how to read lol . Good Luck.
BTW. The fact that the Losi 8 1.0 is old not means that can't win races...
