Thanks

Its hard to give a answer as depending on the buggy and engine it can very. For Mugen most guys run 5-7-3 or 5-7-2. For a D8 like I run, popular setups are 4-4-2. 5-5-2,10-10-5, 5-7-2, 7-5-2. I run 5-4-1 right now.

For an Xray XT8 I'm running 10-10-5 on an open track, 7-10-5 on a tighter track. Stock diffs.
