Is there anywhere we can find Ronald & Martin's setup from the previous ETS?

Thank you in advance.
it's just right the way it is.

every car is wider up front than in the rear (tamiya, hotbodies, xray ...)

for modified always use the regular hard chassiplate (less cutouts) and ball diff. atleast as long as you race indoors. on tarmac tracks with NO! sugar water or similar the soft plate is better. gear or ball diff has to be tested outdoors but indoors ball all the way

Does anybody have a good setup for carpet mod? Do you guys recommend shoe glueing the servo instead of double sided tape? I run my car today and it needs some work...this is my fisrt time running yoks...if you guys have any advise...send them in...the setup I have now is base on the book...what spring should I get? thanks

I use HPI Springs (pink/silver or gold/silver on carpet) 99% of times. If i don't, then I use Tamiya white/blue or yokomo orange/pink. (all in front/rear)

But tbh between all these springs the difference is quite marginal and on most tracks does not really make a difference.

outdoor hpi silver/silver or yokomopink/blue

I broke the alu spool outdrives, what do you recommend for replacement? I'm gathering all the part# I need so I can order it overseas...it will be helpful if you have other recommendation as to which part I should stock base on your experience....both for tweaking and spares. what spur gear do you use, this one has 4 holes. also does Yok's sell the suspension holder in set?

thanks
