Default Need off-road suspension tuning guide

Hey all, I've been searching for some kind of guide for setting up the suspension of an off-road truck, and I just can't find what i'm looking for.

I took my Rustler to the track for the first time, and the car didn't handle very well.

It's a pretty normal rustler, stock setup, 17-turn speedgems motor, stock gearing (18/48)

The nose seemed to bottom out too much when hitting jumps...

The car was wiley under full throttle...


Can anyone recommend some kind of suspension setup guide that explains how to properly set up an off-road vehicle's suspension... and also explains "shock oil weight changes this..." "changing springs does this..." etc?

Thanks in advance,
