Default Post your favorite setup for Losi 8ight t 2.0

Feel free to skip the ones you don't know off the top of your head. I just want to get a feel for the basic best setups. I feel like i can drive better than my car currently handles. I'm lacking in knowing setup.

1. Post track type and conditions
2. Shock oil weight, pistons, springs front and back
3. Diff oils
4. Sway bars
5. Ride height
6. camber
7. toe
8. caster
9. bump steer
10. tires
11. shock position
12. Clutch and springs
13. The one thing that finally dialed your car in

Mine so far
1. Dirt, semi loose to hooked up
2. front-40wt/55 black spring back-35wt/56 gray
3. 7/10/3 - f/c/r
4. 2.3mm
5. 39mm front 42mm back
6. -1 degrees front -2 back
7. 2 out front - 3.5 degrees back
8. stock
9. Down
10. city beams!
11. front - 2/middle back 3/Middle
12. dynamite max life silver and gold springs. I need to change this!
13. Nothing yet thats why i started this thread LOL. Actually the city beam combo makes it turn great!

Check out the Mike Truhe Nitro Challenge setup. That is the one I ran most of the time on the 1.0 truggy.
