assuming rrr evo wc.. I had good luck at a hobby town race at night after a rain storm with extremely low traction with whats below but this is a great setup for everything, just move the roll centers and springs around a bit.
light blue springs, 35wt oil (unless its over 90 degrees, then try 40)
sway bar flat
#3 (up) upper roll center insert (lower to lose steering)
35 shore Twister tires on the kyosho style wheel, 58mm
light blue springs, 35wt oil (again unless its over 90 out)
blade bar flat, or 1.4mm bar
#1 (down) lower roll center insert
inside, lowest hole on the camber link (raise up for more rear bite)
2mm shim under the outer camber link
3 to 3.5 degrees of toe-in depending how little bite, more will square your car up on corner exit on power.
37 shore Twister tires on the 2mm offset wheel at 60mm
standard side pulleys, no overdrive
16 and 59 first gears, 61 if you can get enough traction for more acceleration
22 and 56 2nd gears, not really needed if the track is super short but if your motor can pull it loosen your two speed and use it. This is for an IDM engine that can pull a heavy gear, you may have to go with a smaller pinion for 2nd.
I use the sirio clutch which doesn't really have a setting for this because the spring is too hard, but loosen the nut as much as you can for grip, tighten the gap for more grip but always keep endplay around 0.1mm.
