@ MXR300,
Dont know about you but I'm 43 and have ben in this hobby nearly 30yrs, I prob forgot more about RC then you'll ever know.
I might have ben a bit of a smart azz in my post but was only stating I wished you mentioned the rims purchased were "Slash" rims rather than just rattling off the back spacing.
Whats done is done.

I would try the casey peck setup from the dirt nitro challenge as that is the closest track to what you are looking for. I can tell you I tried what has become are standard starting setup which is the aaron lane setup with the rear bottom shock in the middle and the battery back at revelation and it worked well.

The diffs come filled with grease. What you put in them is usually dependant on the type of track you run on. Smoother tracks I would use either 7/5/3 or 5/5/3. Looser tracks I would get into 5/5/3 or 5/3/3. Some have gone as low as 3/3/2 but a lot of power is lost so have really good batteries for this.

I just switched to 5-3-2, as our track doesnt have the best raction, its very bumpy though. I was using 5-5-3 and it wokred pretty good. Am I going to lose more power going to the 5-3-2? I have a 6500 60c battery.

Hi Ryan, can you please explain the difference between running the rear bottom shock in the middle vs the outside? From my understanding, it will be less responsive, but will have more steering in the middle of a turn? I'm just trying to understand what position to choose with regards to the track conditions.

Middle location I found to be a little better going through high speed sweeper type corners. Outside remember to unscrew the shock eyelets 2 turns to maintain droop but I found the outside to be a little more stable on power coming out of the corners under hard acceleration. Tighter tracks I like outside, flowing tracks carrying a lot of speed through the corners I like middle hole.

Backspacing, using wheel width, determines offset. If backspace is greater than 1/2 the wheel width, offset is positive. If less than 1/2, offset is negative.

That said - I've heard term backspacing used in RC as I have lugnuts.
