Depending on how rough (ruts, ridges, moguls, and large potholes) the track is, how do you decide on what measurement of antisquat to use/try?

For a smooth track, what antisquat setting are you most likely to use/try first?

Rough track = more antisquat
Smooth = less

the less antisquat you run the more the rear is going to "dig" for sidebite, less steering/slide entering and middle of the corner and can be unpredictable with the throttle.

the more you run the less it will "dig" and you'll get alittle better forward grip. More steering/slide entering and mid corner but it is predictable with the throttle.

For a comparison in indoor electric I run between 1 and 0 degrees antsquat to lock down the rear end...... but those tracks are typically very smooth.

In truggy I have run as much as 4 degrees to get steering

Cool. PitSTop has a cash Turggy race this Saturday so would be nice place for you to debut the truggy. Nice easy to start with track to work any bugs out on.

had a great night with the buggy! did some local club racing tonight and must say the buggy gets better and better every time out! i was on fire all night until the main..i started running out of fuel..well i finished the race in third! had a flame out that cost me the race but oh well! i was extremely happy with the new set up! i got very lucky as i crossed the finish line i went another lap any ways well..as i did so my front cvd fell apart! i lost the pin and set screw! but luckily it happened right after!
