For carpet stock and 19T, a good starting point seems to be;

Front:
5 degree caster blocks (10 for more aggressive steering)
Upper arm shims both to the back
.20 springs


Rear:
Center shock: blue spring, 20W oil
blue side springs
30,000W for side dampener tubes

When you are attaching the rear pod to the main chassis, you will want to be sure that the rear pod moves very freely from side to side. No "locking" feeling.
You will most likely need the washer under the center pivot ball stud (indicated in the manual I think)
The next, probably most important part is the washer behind the ball cup for the center pivot. You may need one, you may need two, or you may need none. Make sure you are pushing the ball cup firmly into the pivot block while you are tightening the screw into ball cup. It really just takes putting it together to see what it needs. You can usually tell by how the side links are lining up, which way the center point needs to go to get every thing to line up perfect.

Also on the side links, there is a way to bevel the end of the ball cup to get more movement out of the rear pod. Some pictures of this will be useful.
I'll try to get Damon to post some up.

I'm sure there are some more things that someone could add, but that will get you started.

Oh, and pink rear tire, magenta fronts

team diggity designs wins in cleveland!!! 1/12th concourse entered by ben vanboom.

this is the winning concourse body i used to own, painted by damon converse.

ben says he will gladly give you the trophy, after i gave him a talkin to. lol

i guess he won alot of stuff for youre awsome paint diggs, like a shirt, hat?, and an airbrush kit. but at least the trophy will go to you.

congrats diigs, youve allways painted me awsome bodies.
