I run the "Thrue" (spelling?) set up. Except I use 2 degrees antisquat instead of the three degrees he runs. I tried the three, but it likes to snap out, or loose out of a turn. So I put the two in.

I run the Drake Neo '08 set-up.

Everytime I try something different, then I don't go as fast.

Does anyone have a link or PDF of the Thrue (spell?) set up? I've heard this is a popular set up.
Thanks!
