Default Adjustments? Set-up?

Anyone have web site or some where I can get some guidance on what adjustments to make. I am new to this and not sure what to adjust. Need some kind of idea where to start and why.

1. First try your manual and then the manufacturer's site - a lot of times they will have set-up sheets for various users & conditions
2. Great site to go from there: R/C Car Handling

You can start by letting us know what your racing.

I have a few different vehicles. 2wd sc truck...Slash I race on carpet and outdoors. 4wd sc truck...SCRT10 I race outdoors. Just ordered a TLR22 that I plan on racing outdoors. I also have a AE t4.1 that I am trying to set-up to run on a carpet oval.

Is there anything in particular you are having issues with?

That site is by far the best site to understand RC Racing, at first I couldn't understand anything on that site but after the 100th time I read all of it...
It all makes sense now and really helps to see where/what the car needs adjustment for the track and your driving style.

This is the best site I have been shown so far that tells you what to change to correct problems with your rc handling.

if you dont like reading, like me, Squirrel has some good vids up online. Just type in RC setup guide. he has 21 video series addressing basic setup, but has well over 100 videos that range from camber setup to baking tires off the wheels! have fun! The local track is also great to gain knowledge
