Default Performance Improvements

What should i tweak in my rustler to make it run better (speed, control, anything im new to this) on a dirt track? Slipper is the obvious one but how many turns from all the way in / out is good starting poisiton? Not really raceing yet, but getting close every week. Track i drive on if needed to get an idea of which way to tweak. Thanks for the ideas,
Mini

IMO tires are the most important tuning aid for off road. Find out what the other folks at your track are using.The slipper needs to be set up to slip for the first few feet under full throttle. And the most important thing is practice, practice, practice.
