As promised here is my base setup for the short chassis. There are quite a few parts that are custom and if there is enough interest i can produce them. The car is incredible with this setup on unprepped outdorr permanent tracks or parking lot tracks, this coming weekend the track will have high grip so some changes will be need but i think just adjusting the sway bars should do it, at least thats what i am going to try first.

FRONT:
+1mm spindle extensions
3* camber
2* toe out
10* aluminum caster blocks
Serpent white springs (31.5lb)
Custom sway bar .088"
Roll center in the middle
inside on hub
1200CST with RCShox 2 stage pistons 10x1.3 compression 10x 1.4 rebound
inside on tower outside on arm
Ride height is 8mm
30k Kyosho dif grease

REAR:
+2mm spindle extensions
2* camber
2.5* toe in ( you cannot get this without a custom part, stock settings in the middle are 8*!!!)
Stock antisquat
Stock springs (18lb)
Custom sway bar .078"
Roll center is set inside in the middle/inside on hub
800 CST RCShox 2 stage
outside on tower/ inside on arms
Ride height is 7.5mm
15k kyosho gear dif grease

Ported and polished Novarossi Kangaroo SYDWC 8.5 venturi
nova 9886 pipe with long header
BUKU clutch
45/42 gears
Serpent 2 speed springs turned out 4.5 turns

here is video of the car with these settings

They extend the width of the car by 1mm on each side, 2mm on the rear.

Yes Alpha R3 and sweep 45's

The tires in that last video are the same tires i used in homestead!! I have been running them every weekend since that race and they still are good!! I have over a gallon them now and will run them this weekend at least one qualifier and then i will switch to the new ones just for giggles! Alphas are good for about an hour of runtime and thats being generous!! Luna's car had Alpha's and they around a second slower than the Sweeps at our track, obviously this is not always the case.

I am working on stocking them but in the meantime try
sweepracingusa.com

Not sure if they ship overseas but I am sure that they will. If they dont contact me, I have a few other contacts.
