Default First race this weekend! have a couple quetions??

my first race is this weekend! cant wait. but i have some questions.

what shock oil should i run in my revo for the track? the track im going to be racing on is a smooth track.
the setup i have now is:
regular rockers
stiff springs on all 4 shocks (the stiff springs that come with the revo to use with the LT rockers)
the front ride height it set as low as it will go (on the outer holes)
the rear ride height is set in the middle because it squatted down a lot when accelerating.
so what shock oil do you think i should use?

Not all tracks are the same; smooth or otherwise. Your best bet will be to ask the guys at the track that you're running at.

Go with what you know. The biggest mistake people make is changing stuff right before a race. Just leave it alone, if you feel you're losing time due to a wrong setting fix it before the next qualifier, if you don't know what to change then just leave it.

Have a look on the traxxas forums for misbehavin's review of the 3.3 revo. There's a link to the setup he used. It will give you a good startin point.
