Not sure, may be trying to get to Alvin to get some practice. I might be able to come out Sunday to Katy. So you can take a look at it.

Default Setup

Ok guys this is what I have settled on for my setup and what I am happy with at this point.

Front Camber -1.5 Negative (2.4 Swaybar)
Shocks mounted on stock hole setting on frt (outer holes on arms)
Front Shocks 450 wt. (PTRC oils) Purple Springs (option springs)
1.3 Pistons Black
Front Diff:6000 wt.

Center Diff: 5000 wt.
Brakes set at 60/40 bias
13/46 gearing
Clutch: Buku

Rear Diff: 4000 wt.
Rear Shocks 450 wt. (PTRC oils) Purple Springs (option) Med. tension
1.3 pistons Black
Rear Camber: -2 Negative (2.6 Swaybar)
Rear Camber Links mounted last hole in hub carrier.
Rear roll center middle hole on shock tower.
Rear Shocks Mounted in stock holes. Inner holes on arms
Hub Carriers neutral or middle.
Rear toe 2.75

Tires: VP PRO Axeman MF Wing:VP PRO

I raced this setup at RCHQ in San Antonio,Texas, first race I had put this buggy in. I qualified 7th I believe in the A-main, and was taken out pretty early about 1:44 sec into the start of the race, due to being hit from behind and bending the rear shock shaft to where it would' ve hindered driving the car any further. So I did what was best and pulled off. But I was very pleased with the car's overall handling and the way it felt very comfortable and stable. So I am still trying other things I am curious about and will post more later.

Mine should be here in the next week, so it will be interesting to see how far the rear centre drive shaft still fits into the centre out-drive

So why do you have the flat pack zip tied in front of AMB...maybe weight balance.

Default New Plus 5mm Chassis

Well the testing went very well on the new chassis!.
Weight balance is 50/50 now with battery in the rear compartment.
Turn in very good, rotates faster and better in rough section.
Very pleased with it.
