Default Setup tips for XXX-NT

I am running on a hard packed rough and sometimes dusty track. I have holeshot rear tires and the stock front tires. The truck has large ammounts of under steer and could a little more rear traction. Please give me any set up tips you have. Thanks.

Wow,
that gave me a headache.
Anyway, have you gone to Losi's website and checked out the setup sheets there? The first thing you should do is check to see what everyone else is running as far as tires. That is the number one consideration as far as traction, secondly ask the local fast guys what setups they are using. They should be able to help you out better than most others as they have been running that particular track.

Essentially you should do as Kiiski recommended. Since every track is different you need a base set up which you can get from the Losi site. Tire choice will depend on the track, see what is used by the "fast" guys and get the same. Don't be afraid to ask for their set ups, most of the time they will share it with you.

Have fun racing!

Let's not flame each other here and I'm not one of the grammar police. However, your post is a most difficult post to read since you elect not to use punctuation to separate your run on sentance and using all caps is the equivalent of shouting. So don't have a tantrum, count to ten and learn how to use the caps lock button and throw in a few periods, commas, hyphens, etc.

Also your response above was very juvenile, so who is it that should have their mommy tuck them in?

Respectfully yours,
AreCee

the track is very dry but they use what looks like nitro fuel to wet it in some places. the track is very techinical and is hard to maintain a lot of speed. the key to the track is maintaining speed in the tight corners of which there are 5 that make 180 degrese and about 3 or 4 that are about 90 degreese. Anyone who can take these tight corners with speed and carry it can win.

in order to stay off the wall I need to take the turns very slow or hit the brakes hard and swing the back arround. both ways i end up coming out of the turns slower then many of the drivers.

thanks for the help i will check out team losi right away.

i looked at adam drake's rough slippery track setup and i think it will suit my needs very well. most of the setup uses stock parts so all i have to buy are some new springs and shock oil.

thanks for all the help everyone!
