Add like 2 ounces right in front of the transmission & then add the rest of the weight to meet reg to the left & right of your battery trey.

I talked to pudge a few weeks ago right after the crcrc race about the light setup and he mentioned it being on the associated website. I havent found it yet but from what I recall it was the same setup as the 06 but with the lightest rear spring as well as 1.5 ounces of lead in the back. On the rear shock tower you add another hole at about the same distance as the rest to make a more inboard shock setup. Next time I hit the track I will hit him back up.

disregard, the setup is at this link

No they didn't. I think the setup is pretty different.

The set up posted on AE's web site for CRCRC 2009 is the 'light weight' set up.

Keep in mind, that the 1/2 degree rear hubs are not a must if your track has lots of rear end grip.

The truck set up is being worked on...

Its the 2009 crcrc set up. i ran it last weekend at the "big kahuna" and its really really good. the only thing i did was take the washers out under the rear ballstud. i also made sure the car weighed 1510g with my lipos just like the set up.

Racers Edge makes the hubs.

Is it true?

When they use the .5 they also use a different pivot block ?

also

Which hole on the rear .5 hub are they using for the camber link ?

For truck? As I posted above, the buggy setup is much different, but the question was what setup they used for truck.
