Any info you guys have will be appreciated. I am going to be running a B5M Stock Buggy and already have a full set of Dirt Webs glued up and ready to rock. What gearing do you guys suggest? Any starting points for a setup?

I used to live in Santa Clarita, CA and raced almost exclusively outdoor at Hot Rod Hobbies. I'm fairly certain that setup will be no good here.

Anyone I should look for to meet?

Thanks guys. I'm looking forward to laying down some laps with you guys.

I typically run 30/69 in stock buggy. The track at this point doesn't demand anything more so I keep it there to keep motor temps in check. As far as a starting point for setup, the factory lite kit setup seems to work pretty well as a base point.
This is what I have different from kit setup
Front shocks
3x1.4 pistons 32.5 weight oil. Stoke length at 21.5mm
Rear shocks
2x1.6 pistons 30 weight shock oil, forgot stroke length.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Friday is Pizza Feast practice. I don't think it is open practice due to the pits are almost full.
