I'm still running mine as per kit settings except but with 1mm kick up on the front. It's absolutely planted.

May I suggest you start there.

The other guy who has one changes setups as much as the UK weather system but he always comes back to the base settings.
Meanwhile I just amble along waiting for him to find something better and copy him when he does so.... hee hee.

Oh and he always TQ's, which is good but my; is it annoying.

Congrats Ike. (I think) Yeah, RacerZ's setup looks pretty good on the track. Should only be a few seconds behind me. JK.

Hey guys..Racer Z setup looks really good. Felt even better for the 4-5 laps that I drove it. The car had a lot of corner speed but felt extremely stable. If I had better access to parts I would buy one ASAP. I would try his setup before trying anything else. He has put a lot of testing and tuning into that setup. Try it out.......

Orion 3200 is what I run as well. I can't seem to find a hardcase lipo that will fit so I went withthe advice of someone on the forum and bought a maxxamps 5000 pack. It is a great pack and is only 18mm tall. If you find something that else that fits, please post.

PS. Has anybody got a 3600 Orion to fit yet?

I heard that with some Dremel work you can get it to fit. I think the orion 3600 pack is black in color right? Does it look like carbon fiber?

I was looking for hardcase Lipo's... I did a little dremel work, and the 3600 went in like it was made for it.
