I have asked Walt for his set up but it hasn't come in yet.
I ran my car in Vegas with the kit set up and until the gruip came up it was almost perfect. When the grip came up higher I tried a copper center spring and in-line steering blocks. I would think the kit set up is a really great place to start and them make little changes to suit your track conditions.

Thanks. Our track has plenty of grip and looks like the shake down runs will be done the day of our big race so grip should be way high. That being said I used the copper center spring as well.

I didnt see a part number for the inline steering blocks. I wish the manual would list all of the different parts used for set up kind of like it does with the springs. I was able to find the different ride height adjusters but that is about it. Could I get the part number?

While I am wishing having the manual give a brief description on what the different adjustments do would be nice as well.

Other than that the car went together easy and the fit was nice.I had to add 1.5mm shims to the lower A-arms to be able to add neg castor but this helped to bring the front end out to a full 200mm anyways.

AE doesn't actually have a 3, it has 3 dots on it and it is the centered position.

So what is the affect of using in line axles rather than the regular ones?

Just a tip here. If you place the electronics in the same place(s) as the picture indicates the car will pretty much balance out. Mine balance perfectly left to right. I thought that was cool.

Inline axles increase turn in at the beginning of the corner. They make the car a little more aggresive. The main effect, I believe, is from a slight change in caster. You can change your caster setting to get back where you were. I prefer the more rugged trailing axles.
