Default New Blitz ESE Questions!

I recently purchased a Blitz ESE with the following upgrades:

STRC:

Steering rack
Steering Knuckle Blocks
Aluminum Caster Block
Aluminum Front and Rear Chassis Brace
Aluminum Rear Hub Carriers
Aluminum Rear Camber Link Plate

MIP Blitz Ball Diff

Electronics:
Spektrum DX3.0 SR3001
Novak 13.5 Motor
LRP SPX Stock Spec ESC
Hitec HS-5645MG Steering Servo
Turnigy 2s 5200mah 30c Hardcase

Here's the track where I will be running Super Stock: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jjf-TCfdHPM

So here's my questions:

I am completely new to 1/10 racing, but not electric, brushless or racing! I really don't know too much about these cars. Any help is appreciated!

1: Any other important upgrades or mods I should do for best performance?

2: What would be a good Gearing Base for this track?

4: How should i set the slipper, servo saver, and ball diff?

5: What's a good base setup (camber, ride height, shock oil, etc)

6: Just Curious. Are the JCONCEPTS overtrays or outwears covers worth it? What do they do?

7: Anything else I should know?

8: What's the best body to get (handling/downforce)?


THANKS!

5:Box stock ESE or the Matt S set up from RCshortcourse.com
6: tthe overtray is cool but really not needed you are racing on a super nice clay.
7:the stock ball diff is a pos! haha.
8: Sc10 09' CHamp body.

Perfecto! The surface is pretty nice. Have a link to Matt's current setup?

Also, is 168 oz/0.18 seconds at 6.0V enough for the steering servo?

The AE body looks great but they are thin. The JC RAPTOR lid has all the same features and will last much longer. Plus they look great
