First thing ya should do is google search for the xray 1/8 scale manual and download it. It's got a really good chassis/suspension tuning section in it. Other than that run your car and see how you like the way it drives and what you don't like about it. Then you can ask for changes that may make it better. A good engine and good tuning make the nitro world much more pleasant.

5000 front diff oil, 7000 center, and 3000 rear would be a good starter setup for your diffs. Shock oil maybe try 60 front and 35 rear. Have to experiment with the front toe to see where you like it and try 3* toe-in for the back. I've never run a hyper but my buddy had one and it was alot like my K3 so maybe those settings will work for yours as well.

Have either of you guys any experiance with nitro? How long you been running rc's?

this car needs a lot of tweeking with the LSN and HSN - initially it will just gobble up fuel because its set too rich. run it in and it will run like a speed devil (speaking from personal experience)
