Have you tried the set up in the manual? The stock race roller setup is pretty good for a starting set up. After you get there, find out what your car is doing on the track and then adjust it accordingly. One persons set up may not work for another. I run pretty close to the race roller set up with a few changes like rear sway bar, camber and rear link holes depending on track conditions. But the shocks, diffs, ride hieght, and others are the same. BUT the most important part of your set up is your tires You can be dialed on set up and have the wrong tires and your car will be a turd with wheels. Ask around at the track what the fast guys are running for set up and tires. BTW, if you dont have the manual, go to losi.com and they have a couple different setups as well as the race roller one. Hope this helps.

Come see me at the factory. I'll give you the setup I have on my car. It's nothing even close to the stock setup. You might like it or you might hate it. It lets me drive punched

If you are a naturally smooth driver and like to roll in and out of corners with decent throttle control I would start with the stock setup or even the Truhe setup from the worlds at the Farm. If you really like to push a car around, well..............like Shane said, SEE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check out this thread

http://www.rctech.net/forum/nitro-of...oid-phone.html

It probably won't help your immediate need, but it will make sharing setups a lot easier in the future.

Shane's setup might not work for you. Why not start with the stock setup and work it from there.

I think maybe start from stock and learn what makes what do what. Make small adjustments and drive to see how it effects that car.
