Yeah, that was me when I was starting out.... now I have TOO much stuff !

Where are you thinking of racing it? I'm sure some of the people at the track or at the hobby shop would help you.

Get yourself a vernier and make sure that both sides of the car are symmetrical i.e. the front left pillow ball is screwed out as much as the front right etc....

Get yourself some Associated shock oil.... maybe 60 front 50 rear or 50 front 40 rear.... just make sure the rear's a bit softer than the front.

The kit oil is way too thin!

We run a combined Stock/Sport/Novice class, you'll be against mostly V-One Ss or a few younger guys (like myself) that are getting the hang of their Pro Tourers before they head into Pro.

What you're running is basically what I was running.
