Default Suspension Adjustment Help!

Can anyone give me a link that had Tips/Instructions for adjusting an off road buggy suspension, specifically Track Width, Camber, Toe, etc. I have an MBX5R and I don't believe I've ever adjusted correctly. Thanks for any suggestions.

Here's a great setup:
http://www.mugenseiki.com/mbx5p-setu...5_sh040206.pdf

This is for a really rough track though. I'm running this setup with a few changes:

Shock Pistons: Stock white
F Shock oil: Losi 35wt 6 or 8mm spacer - If it's cold go down to 30F/25R
R Shock oil: Losi 30wt 8 or 10mm spacer
Springs: Gray front, light blue rear

Steering Ackerman: Center hole

If you find you need more steering use .5-1.0 toe out in the front

And here's the link to Mugens setup sheet library

Agreed!

Start with the setup I gave you above, then using the Hudy guide start tweaking the setup to suit your track and driving style!
