Default Set-up tips for Hot Bodies D8

Hi guys,

I'm using a HB D8 at my local track which is very bump, dusty and has very little grip. I keep struggling with understeer especially when I'm off throttle. What would you suggest?

Post the setup you are using. Shock Oil, Diffs, Camber and Shock Locations, etc.

You can get noticeable gain in performance if you do the LP2 conversion. Especially works good on bumpy tracks. There is a thread dedicated to that.

Go to 3K in the Rear Diff. Raise your Rear inner camber link (Start with middle hole since you didnt list). -2 Camber front, -2.5 rear, 32.5/1.3/HB Gray or AE Silver, 37.5/1.3/ HB Blue or AE Silver.
