Default XRAY M18T Pro VS. Tek18x RC18T

I have the Tek18x....just curious as to how the two compare side by side.

Default Set up, Corner speed, Driving like a pro.

Can someone point me in the direction of a thread on setup tips and how they affect control. I had alot of understeer on power, made some changes and now the arse end wants to get out there to easy when powering on out of the corner. EG rear camber links, front roll bar and front droop stop. These are three things I did change to go from one bad senario to another here. How do they affect the rear side bite, I think thats what it's called, and what should I pay more attention to to get it round the corner quick and be able to get the power on without being worried it's going to skip out. I realise it's alot to do with throtle control, but a better setup should alow me to get on it eairlier yeah

when you do changes, its a good idea to try one change at a time
a little droop change makes a big change in handling
