Thanks in advance.

Hey Stephen, I dont know if my setup will be very useful to you as I'm only running mod with it, propably have way too much steering for stock. I think the kit setup is an excellent starting point for SoCal though, you could run that all day and not be slow.

Thanks,
I figuered as much, I thought maybe a little firmer springs, But if it was box stock and it hadled well I will be OK.
I also put my PT on top of the servo.
What servo is everyone using in there BD.
Mine is in my signature. I find it has great speed and never leaves me wanting more.
Has anyone had any problems with the KO servos taking too much power from the reciever and the PT's fail to send info?
I have heard the QC2 esc has this problem, any others experience this?
Thanks,
Stephen <><

as randy mentioned above start with the box stock setup. somethings you may want to try from there would be less rear toe, move the front shocks a hole, and try 1/2 degree of toe-out in the front.
stop by my pit if you have a question and i'll be happy to help out.
don't know what body i'll be running but ask for me and someone will find me for you...

On the shock hole move is it upper or lower and in or out?
I will be running a Mirror Crome E Stratus.
I had a good run with the E Stratus the only time I raced there.
I also have a green to blue Mazda 6 and a Ride MKII stratus.
Which bodies seem to handle the best there?
Oh yea I also have an Alfa 2, a Proto Startus 3 and a Rayspeed Accord.
Any help would be great.
Thanks,
Stephen <><

Yea but I figured traction would be real bad for the first couple quals this sunday cause of the early morning hours. I might just bring the spring just in case.
Thanks,

stock front position is layed all the way in (position one) you may want to go to position two. in the rear stock position which i believe is hole 2. 450 oil all around and could try 400 in rear?

body mazda 6 is a safe choice and rayspeed accord, and yokomo stratus work well depending on track layout.

more than likely sorex36 with 39F inserts
