Hi Jeff.... this is really helpful guide to all aspects of setup. More of the "why do it" whereas the Xray .pdf somebody posted above just tell you "what to do"... read together they are really helpful.

easy, center controls overall acceleration (and ratio front to rear) then go higher front or rear depending which one you want more on power. most go with thick front thin rear for on power out of corner control. if the on-power is good you can thicken the rear to loosen it up some or thin it out to leave it planted. you have to balance all that out with tire choice and traction.

Hey Jeff. Welcome to the RC world. Since competition is in your blood, you will find this hobby/sport as exciting (Scaled down of course! ) as your MX racing.

Since it sounds like you will be your own mechanic, in this one, you will also find out how complicated set-ups can be. It can be frustrating sometimes, but when you hit the magic set-up (for you!) you will be so stoked!

I find that X-ray (The Bible as I call it), has some of the best info for explaining all the different adjustments, and what effect they have on your car. Keep it handy. Rememeber try not to make too many changes at one time. Too many changes can get you chasing your tail, and throw you way off.

Here is another link to some VERY helpful info-

http://home.scarlet.be/~be067749/58/ (Click Quick Guide)

This is the "quick guide" but if you really want to boggle your mind, take a look at the other links within. It goes into the true dynamics of it all, and will give you a headache!

Oh yeah, and ALWAYS ask questions!!

Good Luck!

Hey jeff, If your looking for a good electric drill for assembling you rc stuff I recomend the Bosch lithion drill it is really small it also has a 10 speed clutch so you have a wide range of settings for tightening every part on your cars.I believe it costs about 120.00 but is well worth it. Hope this helps. Good luck in supercross this year! Hopefully supercross comes back to mini soon!!

+1 on the Bosch. It is a great tool. I got mine off of ebay at a good price. shop around and you might find it cheaper.

Jeff you have blisters on your hand from a screwdriver!?!?!? I figured a pro mx racer would have hands of leather, i did when i raced and i was just a weekend warrior. Must be the new gloves and grips every race day. Its great to see you on here as i always pulled for you and your brother when yall were coming through the AM ranks. I want to congradulate both of you for making it to the big leauges. Good luck in the upcoming season and practice hard cause both of you are championship material.
