Love my Zero S. Have one for VTA and TC. Same thing that everyone else says. Great car for the money. I have had a little bit of trouble setting up the car. But last year was my first year racing. I learned a lot and I am hopeful that the car is even better this season. By the end of the year I was beating people running TC5s and TC6s.

I got the xray front hard foam bumper. Haven't broken a front C hub since, before I was breaking 3 a night from my bad driving.

Going to try AE springs with the 4mm shock tower. Not sure what 3racing springs to use, but know what everyone runs with AE springs. This will help get a baseline to help me setup.

3) Moved rear arms forward 1mm (all shims behind rear arms)
4) Added more rear camber (running 1.5 deg)
5) Switched to narrow chassis (gave the car more overall traction)
Thank you.

When using the narrow blocks do I have to shorten my swing shafts or I can do with the 46mm's?

When using the narrow suspension blocks at the rear,yes you have to use the shorter swingshafts.
This is, if you don't use them you get binding at the dif side from the blades.
Even if you use a gear dif.
This also is the case if u use the shorter suspension arms front and rear.
Front you can use the 46mm but it will be a close call.
Rear you should use the 44mm or the 42mm.

You're definitely right because I came back to RC after years away from it to "try" drifting and now I got a second chassis to "try" touring.
