Your sig states you run touring car. I am new to RC all together but I use a friends hudy touring car setup guide (it comes with the setup station). The same priciples carry over from touring to off road.

He means a book that comes with the setup station its a guide for setup changes.
Does the car lack turn in? push under power? In the fast sweepers or tight sections?
Post some of you setup in the car. Mainly diff oils, toe & camber settings. Shock locations. And a big one is do you have the right tires?

Diff oils start with 5k-5k-2k. Shock oils 35wt front 40wt rear. Make sure you have a decent servo and the servo saver is set correctly this can cause a major lack of steering. Camber start with -1.5 front -2.5 rear. Toe out 1degree in the front. Front caster shims middle. Rear toe 2.5degree.
