Default Any good setup tuning guides out there?

I'm looking for some good guides on tuning an electric stadium truck.

i.e. suspension, gearing, toe, camber, etc...

Maybe some common problems and what direction to go to resolve? too lose > try this, too much push > try this, etc...

Thanks

The Team Losi cars all come with a good tuning guide in the back of the instructions. This can be downloaded from teamlosi.com. Also download the Xray tuning guide for the Xb8 buggy. It is for a 1/8 buggy but much of it applied to all offroad vehilces.

I'll take a peek at the book, but the XB8 setup guide was almost exactly the type of information I was looking for...thank you Davidka

It has a good range of "If you change this, you can expect this"

Now I have a good idea of some things to change when I can get some practice in. I think I'll leave gearing alone until I get handling under control.

Their site is all flash driven, so I don't have a direct link that is viewable.

If you choose the XB8R and below the pictures of the car, choose Download and then choose Instruction Manual.

The setup starts at page 36.

However the link above gives just as good info.
