Thanks!
Hi Alan,
I run 3 degrees rear camber in the rear to promote a more progressive rear slide. I found when running 2 degree's the car would have more grip in the rear but when it did let go it let go more aggresively.
I run Anti Squat down because I tend to coast or even brake over the real bumpy parts as they are usually braking bumps.
Saying all this, we have been testing and playing around a lot. I'll post Theo's and mine new Setup shortly. It's funny because it's like the old tried and tested setup and we wandered away from it, trying different things and now when we've gone back. the car is an absolute pleasure to drive.

On another note, we just won a four hour enduro with the buggies and we had our friends driving the Truggy for the 3 hour and they came 2nd. The best part was the one OCM Truggy went for 2 hours and 56 minutes non stop. 4 minutes left and the clutch bearings gave up. A tremendious effort by all the guys and I'd like to thank Theo Assa, Cary Davies, Craig Hawk in Buggy and Ruben, Jim and Anfo in Truggy.

guys I found OCM KAOS on ebay....

I would not recommend purchase of this buggy. It is a original kit and
will have faulty plastics(bulkheads) and more than likely missing
parts. I care not to go into much more detail but I'm sure of the kit
and the company who is selling it. I see no mention of these issues
and I am positive it will have these problems. This kit should not be
on the market. If you are looking for good deals on current OCM
product please let me know and I can save you a lot of trouble.

Okay guys after heaps of testing and trying different setups. we've found the perfect, fast, easy to drive setup. Trust us this really works and I will probably not stray away from it too much on any track/surface.

Front End

Shocks 450 weight with Blue OCM or Mugen Grey.
Standard Pistons.
Shock position Top Middle on tower, Shock position Lower inside on arm
Using short Standard shock shafts with EVO shock bodies. 2mm of thread showing on shock shaft to get required droop. (Be mindfull if too much thread is showing, this can catch o-rings)
Front Anti dive insert 1.5 DOWN
Front Toe insert 0.5 IN
Front Ackerman Middle position
Front steering link on inside position of knuckle
Front Top arm Insert 0.25 UP
Caster Clips in front of arms (Max Caster)
Front width 27.4 CM measured at the bottom of steering knuckles
Camber 1.5 Degrees at ride height.
Actual toe out at ride height 1 degree
Sway bar 2.7mm

Rear End

Shocks 450 weight with Blue OCM or Mugen Grey.
Pistons drilled to 2 x 1.5mm.
Shock position Top Outer on Tower, Shock position Lower inside on arm
Using short Standard shock shafts with EVO shock bodies. 0.5mm of thread showing on shock shaft to get required droop. (Be mindfull if too much thread is showing, this can catch o-rings)
Rear Toe insert 0
Rear Anti Squat Insert 0.5 Down
Rear upper Linkage inside middle on shock tower and middle position on upright.
Upright position, use bottom hole
Wheel base, all spacers behind uprights (full short)
Rear Camber 3 degrees at ride height
Sway bar 2.8mm (Standard)

For ride height I remove wheels and then press down on car, then I adjust so chassis comes back up and is just off the ground, front and back.

Diffs

Front 5000, Centre 7000 Rear 2000 using GS or Mugen oils

If you wish to try this setup, use all of it as it ties everything in nicely.
