Anyone have a good setup for OCRC (med/large clay)? Neuman's or Lutz's clay setups on petit.rc may be good, but thought I'd ask to see if anyone has setup specifically for OCRC.

Also, I'm about to put my bulldog body on and wondered if and where people are drilling air flow holes in it.

Anyone have too much steering too much power.. LOL I put a base setup on last night and did a few laps and wow it steers on a dime, in fact way too much steering iMO. The rear end likes to break loose because it can't keep up w/ the front w/the tight turns. Using the chassis weight but not the side weights. Going to tweak a few things.. tossed on the big bore shocks (found a parted car on ebay so got a great price) and a aluminum servo horn (plastic one stripped in minutes).

Any thoughts or recommends? I'm running on a fairly tight indoor clay track w/ a med bite surface.

Yeah too little steerings not a problem with this car. Use the side weights if you can, I also added 5 gms to each of the rear hubs. Drilled a hole and screwed them in place.
I also widened the rear hexes. Form the little I got to test it seemed to help a fair bit, but I then broke a rear alu diff loop. Ill test it with plastic one more tomorrow

What setup did you use?

Gearing down to a 22t (keep the 24t for large tracks) on my blinky 8.5, slapped the big bores on and plan on testing with my Rx and see if I can't slow it up enough there w/o too many setup edits. If I don’t feel it getting close I'll grab those side weights and see how I like. I've seen a few setups out there and none of them used the side weights so I'm a little hesitant to bother.

Take 1-1.5mm out the rear droop using the droop screws, helps keep the rear end where it belongs. I also have my front end internally limited 2mm.

So excited..., this will be my first 4wd buggy. Going to be using the car for carpet. I'm assembling the car as per instructions. What shock weight oil should I be using? Any other changes I should change to the setup for carpet? Basically just looking for a good starting point for carpet.
