Hey Mertz, you mind sharing your B4 setup with me? I'm going to run mine next weekend after the trophy race.

Thanks

Thanks again for the help
I run sp box setup with rear shocks on inner hole of tower, 35wt. front and 32.5wt rear, no sway bars, shaft one way (try it without shaft oneway first). I also suggest playing with the ride height often cause i noticed it has a pretty big effect, if the chassis is slapping the car will drive bad and if the nose is too low it will jump funny. I am more a driver then a set-up guru but my lazer is a pretty good car with a couple changes from the box set-up and i love it.
