They set ride height, droop, camber and caster. The main thing to do is to assemble the car right the first time, pay attention to the instructions. Make sure shock length is the same for all four shocks.

If they hit something, they loosen the screws and retighten them and put it back on the track. I watched Bk race for years, telling me the tweak stations are bogus, its how your car drives on the track, Dont waste your money.

I enjoy my T2 and if you have any legitimate problems, voice them to RC America....They have great customer service and will take care of you.
Thanks maybe I did something right.

If you hit something, you broke it !!! Its not the cars' fault that you hit something. Take it like a man and get a new chassis, its all part of racing. I broke two chassis on my FK05, because I hit something. Its my fault, that I hit a pole.

corallys NEVER needs tweaking...the losi guys are all stuck in the mind set of Jr. the tweak stations that bolt all four corners are hurting ..the MIP is the real deal...9 times out of 10 the corally is the most consistant car that stays flat on the MIP station...if you guys are still setting your tweak with your droop start looking for some other type of work...Tweaking your car after heavie hits has got to suck..lol....

I run on rubber tires on asphalt, high grip , indoor at Socal Raceway,CA

I run the medium stiffness setup from the manual:
Sorex 36R tires with Zenon Blue inserts.
multi -diff in the one way setting
Rear diff is fairly tight.
-1 degree of camber all the way around
Stock rear toe with two shims in rear and one shim up front.
Shock postions, and roll centers are straight from the manual.
I run stock oil and springs
Ride height is set at 5mm
Droop is at 4 front and rear ( measured under arm) on standard droop guage, non Hudy.

Wow you must drive with some great drivers, cause up here corally's tweak when guys hit stuff.

Every car I have ever had tweaks from race to race. Thats why before each run I back every screw off, no matter what. If you look at any of the pro drivers they all do the same. Its about makeing the car as perfect as possible everytime you put it on the track. Than, just to double check i put the car on four scales, and only 3 times have I not had to adjust a car on the scales.

If you don't want to work on a car from race to race that is on you, but every car needs it.
