Chech the Slayer thread for more setup info. Or the traxxas forum for Slayden's setup is a good place to start.

To answer your question shortly is a swaybar kit(a must), heavier springs, lower it, and thicker shock oil to start.

Slow down too, they are geared way to fast. its rediculous that a truck with narrow arms and a high center of gravity does 50. I would recommend changing to a 15/40 gearing.

Brake in a straight line. You cant throw this thing into a corner like you would with other vehicles.
