Well I finally drove it yesterday and it drove fantastic. I was blown away. I'm no expert at set ups.. so I basically used the same settings I had on my Kyosho IGT.
Shock oil / spring:
90W front kyosho IGT Silver
80W rear Kyosho IGT Black
(I ended up using the plastic shocks from an IGT since I have yet to find firm spring rates for stock TRF shocks. Going to look into Losi L8 Ovals soon)
Front Xray Active Diff
Rear Stock diff with mix of 3000 weight silicone and Mobil 1 synthetic axle grease
Centre: Filled with Mobil 1 synthetic axle grease.
Rear 2 degree
Rear - 2
Ride height and droop were eye balled, more droop in front then rear. Rear higher than front.
I had punch control off on the Tekin RX8 and when I pulled the trigger it would light up all four and correct itself and dart straight as a nail. Turn in a low and high speed was dead on.. night and day difference over the IGT I used to have.
As for tyres, I was running PMTs 20 front and 10 rear that are probably 3 years old and I forgot how good these tyres are. They warmed up after one pass and car was glued.
Batteries: I'm running 5 cell LiFePo4 and they're quite heavy, so if I decide to continue this route, I will have to re balance left and right.. or add weight to the right side
