Default 1/8 tuning guide?????

diehard electric guy crossing into the nitro arena.. picked up a 777sp2 and 777st-r. but with all the extra tuning features, where does one begin...

just wondering if there is something out there to explain a lil more clear about what does what on the car, besides me doing a ton of testing and learning selfhand.

X-Ray has an excellent manual that they include with their buggy kits. I believe you can down load it from....
www.mytsn.com

You could also try the search feature here for specific problems.

Vic I'll email ya the xray manual, it has a good tuning guide and what does what on it.

**edit** emailed it to ya

Oh ya, if ya ever get around Mini Joe pick his brain a little bit. He can tell ya all sorts of good stuff. I've never asked Al about 1/8 scales myself but imagine he's an encyclopedia as well.

Who makes the best setup tools such as ride height, droop and camber guages for 1/8th scale buggies?

Hudy and Team Magic have the nicest sets. Integy has a set that looks good too, thought I havnt heard any feedback on them. Search here or on Ebay for PMB. This company makes a set. They're molded plastic. I have heardn not so great things about the set, but it is very inexpensive.

Thanks for your help. Would you happen to know the Hudy 1/8 buggy droop and ride height guage part number? I found the set up system but it doesn't seem to be included.
