What works for me is TIRES.... go with a Super Soft Holeshot or DD. use the Suburbs in the front. Maybe even try a harder compound front tire.
I cant use a holeshot or double D. My track is indoor and its all clay. The actual tire of choice is a slick but they seem to not work so well on my 22T. The suburbes feel good everywhere else on the track except for coming out of the turn, Im not really looking for a tire change, but mainly a setup change and Im not sure how to get some better traction coming outta the turns.

Those tires suck in the rear... don't listen then.. use casper set up.. and be done with it! Holeshots work great everywhere ! don't be hard headed....

What is the rest of your setup? Shock locations, springs, camber link positions with ball stud washers.

If everyone else is on slicks I don't think M4 would be the ticket for rubber. Tires are very important for any good setup. And yes 3.3 deg of rear toe in might help but may not be the right answer as well. Too much toe can lock in a car mid corner and make it push.

Like dvsstrike had mentioned have you raised he tranny yet? This helps with on power stability.

Haven't raised the tranny yet. How much is the raise... 1mm? As for hole shots, I can't see how they would work on my track. My track is kept very wet with little to no dust cover.
Casper - can I send me your set up sheet?

I'm using this setup but with a 10.5

All my setups can be found at www.casper-rc.com Details on raised tranny are linked on the setup sheet, and you can use AE big bore pistons for the 2 hole pistons if you don't want to make your own.

I am quite suprised to see how light of oil Michael is using on that setup. Front and rear pink springs is quite odd as well.

Sounds like slicks or maybe a small pin tire like a Panther switch 2.0, JC wishbone, PL Ion or scrub may be better for you. If the track is wet clay look at the clay compounds (panther clay, JC Gold, Pro-line MC). Also panther makes a slick ST tire. You will still want to hit it with a dremel sanding drum to rough up the surface a little but much easier then grinding down something with pins already.

That is too general a question. Indoor clay will typically require a different tire then outdoor dirt. The moisture content of the dirt/clay and the amount of loose stuff as well has how hard the base is will all effect tire selection so to ask what front tire works best on most tracks, does not have a good answer.

+1 To what Casper said - but have you been to your track yet and checked out what the fast guys are using - go with that! If you simply want something to put on your T to get it going, get a set of ribs, or for bashing, road(hogs) tires.

What is the best approach for softening the front end? What should I change first or together....Springs, oil, or pistons?

what do you need out of the front end? green is a good spring for this truck in my experience. try 2 hole pistons, I have 2 x1.6mm front and rear with 25wt associated oil in the rear and 30 in the front. works really well!

Yeah do you need less damping, Less pack or just less support?

I'm getting no weight transfer on breaking and landing on the front is stiff causing the back to kind of slam down. Have 56 piston, orange spring, and 27.5 weight oil.

For most setups I see on this truck you are kind of soft already. Most are on green or blue front springs.

What is the rear end?
