Here is my base setup for a medium to high bite indoor track and a link to a video with a couple practice laps http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCyh4k8s_g4

Rear motor
Shocks: 30 wt. losi front oil, 27.5 rear. Four hole non-tapered pistons front and rear with stock springs. 4.5mm of limiting in the front and 2mm rear.

Shock Location:
Front: second hole from inside on top, outer hole on bottom
Rear: Second hole from inside on top, middle hole on bottom.

Turn buckles:
Steering: Ball stud on forward hole on steering rack.
Front: Inside hole on the tower with no shims. Outside hole on the hub.
Rear: Inside hole on bulkhead, middle on the hub.
Camber: -.5 degree front and rear

Ride Height: 23.5mm measured from chassis, not t-plate
Battery Location: Stick pack down the middle spaced all the way forward.
Wing all the way forward.
Weight: 1530g with a venom 3800 35c lipo and 14g. on the left side of the chassis. I have the esc mounted on the shelf down the center of the car.
Motor:9.5t

Thoughts:
The car has a lot of forward traction, but it is still very responsive and turns into corners aggressively. I have started to do some testing with a shorty pack and it gives the car a more nimble feel, good for tight corners and high traction tracks. For a shorty pack, you will probably want to go to 27.5 wt. oil in the fron and 25 wt. rear.

Austin
I'd like to take a look at that buggy some time? I race in cbus here and there as well as The Factory. I'm off for at least two weeks getting a new radio ready to go but I will probably go to EN once I get it on a Sunday to set it up.

I don't really race at the factory due to the longer drive, but maybe we can meet up at en some time. I'm not racing as much as I would like to right now because of high school sports, but the car has been very good so far.

And thank you for making me feel so old. With a new radio coming there is no way I'm going to crcrc the first Sunday with it or the factory. I also work second shift so Saturday morning to EN is a bit of a stretch. Radio will hopefully be ready the weekend after next?

for those searching for a body, I test fit my JConcepts RB6 Finnisher...With a little creative trimming in the rear, I think we have a winner.

my airbrush is acting up and my patience was very low, so I grabbed a spray bomb (only color I had) to did a 1 color jobber...

There will be another one coming to Ohio soon to join the one Austin has. Looking forward to the build and racing it.

i decided to try one of these out, got one on it's way.
i'll admit to being an AE fanboy (i've been one for 25 years) but i wanted to try something new while i wait for a new AE buggy not just an updated buggy.

Its a really good buggy. Quite simple, & easy to drive. Outdoors is starting up, and I will be running mine in mod 2wd where it is offered.
