Default please help with setup.

I just got back into RC as some of you may know. When i got back into it a must was for me to be able to build it. Of course that only leaves the expensive ones. So i settled on the mbx 6. It's built. I have a ofna .26 engine. I must say, it is one BAD lookin buggy! to get to the point here. I basically need some setup ideas. Not so much as shock and diff oil. I will be running probably the heavyest shock oil i can find. And have the standard 2,7,5 setup in the diffs.

My real concern is ride height, and squat??? what is that anyway??? i know camber, caster and toe in. I know there is some others i am missing. Please help me. I know i sound a little ignorant here, but when i raced i was alot simpler. Not to mention 2 wheel drive.

thanx in advance!
