I finally got mine all wired up. Still need to finish up my body though. Just curious if anyone has some setup tips, I swapped out the stock shocks for some tamiya aluminum ones and filled them with 25wt. I've just been driving it around my basement but it seems to push real bad. Is there a general rule of thumb to increase turn in, like stiffer rear suspension or stiffer front? I have the sway bar set, and the tamiya spring set (red, yellow, blue, white) to play around with. Any tips or insight?
I'm running a 17.5 with no boost, and I run on a carpet track usually, but for now it's not being raced, just bashed.

Nice parts SNRSCION, I wouldn't mind getting a chassis and upper deck!

Spent some time finishing up the body over the holiday, looks pretty decent, had some issues with the paint but it looks good enough. It's going to get beat up anyways. This is definitely one of my favorite HPI bodies, it looks great and they did a great job on all the details. I might have to buy a few more for a rainy day.

Got the handleing somewhat sorted, I found that the Tamiya springs were really soft compared to the ABC hobby option springs. (Forgot I bought the ABC spring set) Tried some purples up front and reds in the rear, that helped tremendously! Time for a little track time this weekend with it.

Enjoy the pictures, this is probably the last time the body will look this good

@ Mr. Pink

Nice work! Glad to know that it fits. Might have to get the chassis to fit it to this body.
