Couple folded up setup sheets with remarks at the bottom in my tool box.

The car I run now dont seem to need much in the way of setup change no matter where I drive.

Diff oil change,small shock oil wt change,& small front/rear camber change is usually all, once in a great while springs but the stuff changed from the std setup I settled on is for that dirt on that day.

I am by no means a real fast guy just a mid-top sportsman,but I have come to the conclusion that big setup changes often are more detrimental than just zeroing in on a good all round setup & getting used to it with minor changes to suit that day if you need to compenste.

May be car dependent though as the last couple car saw big changes often & I never could get to a comfortable place with them.

I depend on my Losi manual. It's all in there. Camber effects, Toe effect , oil weight, droop, ect. I also printed a quick tuning guide that i found. I carry a black sharpie a pad and a pen. I write down parts that I need to order. try different setups and mark the final setups on a blank Losi Set-up sheet. I'm very new but am totally hooked. I did this with my full sized rock crawler and worked good for me, so I use the same system on this new toy.
Losi 8T 2.0, Werks B5 Pro, Savox 1267 / Hitec 7950
Losi Eight 2.0, Nova 4c, Hitec 7940 / Hitec 7955
Losi Eight E 2.0, RX8, Tekin 1900kv / Hitec 7955
