HK - The only upgrades I had on my X-S was the front swaybars, front one-way diff, and blue springs.

Had you posted this about 2 hours ago when I was home, I could have given you my old X-S Trackside setup. I just spent today prepping the car to sell.

I can PM you what I remember on the setup if you wish.

Heres my setup i used for a carpet race with CS-27's. I just had to go to a little stiffer sway bar in the front and a little stiffer spring. This should get you in a ball park. Hope this helps you. Heres the link and ill include the actuall file. http://www.teamlosi.com/pictures/jpe...rackside03.jpg

Check out Losi's site for Hodge's Trackside rubber setup (from 2003 I believe). It's a great starting point.

What is your car not doing? Echoing the other guys, Todds set-up is a great starting point.
