Brandon - Although not recommended..ROAR has a few rules regarding a few engine dimensions, and that is it. You can get the whole rulebook at www.roarracing.com

Team Associated - I'd get the Orion motor in the first link.

Default Help with xxx-nt

Hey Aaron. I need some setup help with my gas truck.
A good setup for hard packed clay track that gets rough. We water it down so it's not so dusty. It has good traction when wet. Thanks.

The setup I have now is along the same as Drakes rough track setup. I just can't seem to get it dialed. Wish I could get it like my MF xxx-t cause it rocks. Thanks for your time.

Doug - This may not be the answer you were hoping for..but we never change our setup from "Adam Drake's Standard setup". Years of racing this truck at every type of track you can imagine has shown that this one setup works great everywhere, with just a simple change of tires.

When putting that setup on your car, take extra time setting ride height and camber. The rear ride height should always be at ARMS level, never bones level. Also, +1/2 degree camber in the rear can help you find a little more sidebite when the track gets slick.

Hope that helps!
