Look into setups attached to kit (or from this link for 009 but they are basically the same http://www.teamxray.com/gallery/xt2-...eet_T2-009.pdf). It's good starting point. I also allways starts with it.

The 008EU's box setup (the one recommended in the manual and setup sheet that come with it) is very good. Have you tried it?

The Box setup is a really good starting place.

Here is my set-up form the Northeast Grand Slam event a couple weeks back on highbite carpet. Worked very well.

Look up Elliot Harpers setups for Maritime or Carpetwars (same venue) on the Xray site.

the book setup should really give u the base to start with and all that literature they give u really makes it easy in telling you what to do and when to do it. take some hints from those at ur tracks. on here its mostly all principles and conjecture.
