run the stock setups that are in the manual, thats a great starting point. i run mine very aggressive and youll get a million suggestions, i wont even post mine because its hard to drive if your new to this but the setup in the manuals are good and easy to drive, start there and learn the car and once you get better youll want to play with setup then.

just my 2 cents.

hi mate
just a thought cause you are running a extremely powered engine (O.S Speed)
your might decide to change your center diff. to #7000...
cause i have a V-spec and i ran stock and the gears in my center diff were destroyed!!!the gears were in stuck in the plastic!!! so just recommending
My 2 cents

Ty has some updated ones on his website that are worth looking at. Just look his track descriptions and match it to yours and start there.
