Default Yokomo MR-4TC SD CGM Drift ?!HELP!?

Hey guys, im new to RC drifting and need some help on deciding what to get for a motor. i had a 19t brushed motor and thinking of upgrading to the Novak GTB or havoc pro and the 10.5T Brushless (either the SS or Ballistic unless anyone has better recommendations). this will be going in to my Yokomo MR-4TC SD CGM. I also need Help with the set up of my car, with the whole camber and what not. so if some one can send me a link for that that would be great. i've been looking and haven't found any set up, i might just be looking in the wrong spot. Thanks in advance! any and all help is greatly appreciated!

For a motor combo, i would go with a Speedpassion GT 2.0 esc, with either SP's 7.5r or you can get a novak ballistic 7.5 or 8.5

when i ran an 8.5, i geared it to about 7.0 fdr, and it ran well in my HB cyclone.

as for setup, try

front:
-2 camber
0 toe
0* toe block
ball diff
soft/medium springs
25 wt oil
shock positions will vary on your preference, try stock first.

rear:
-1 camber
3* toe block
spool/locked diff
super soft/soft springs
25wt oil
shock positions will vary on your preference, try stock first.

if you're looking for parts, i would check out www.driftspeed.com to order online or you can also contact Katsumi via email: [email protected]

if you have trouble reaching katsumi, PM me, and ill help you out. if you have anymore questions, just let me know.

atm i might be getting my hands on GTB with either a 10.5 SS or Ballistics. is it better to use a 8.5 or 7.5 turn motor? and as for the Speedpassion, is it more suited for what im doing?

thx
