Josh prior to your posting, consider searching through the threads, use the search feature here to locate the thread and filter it out again once you find the right thread.

For example first search keywords would be your Losi Truggy model "Losi Truggy 1.0"

Then refine down to setup etc etc you would be surprised to how quick you can find the info that way instead of waiting for someone to post back to you something already posted on the official thread.

What you are overlooking is their is no one perfect setup. Just like their is no "Best Motor" or "Best Servo"

All tracks are different and you setup a car to handle best on the specific track.
Good rule is, start with a stock setup and go from there.

You have many ways to find the answers
  1. Ask this same question at your local track. Even then you will get different opinions
  2. Learn what each setting does and slowly dial it in.
  3. Download setup sheets and playaround.
