Default Parking lot setup

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM lets see.
Stock set up is the ticket. All jokes aside the car is on rails right out of the box.

Prevent from one of the other tires from lifting up during cornering. So you have both tires in contact with the ground. [/QUOTE ] does that give it more traction or less

On the track, the two cars should be pretty close

Default Bones for front CVD's

Does anyone know where I can get spare bones for MTX-3 front universals? Lord knows I've busted enough but I've saved most of my parts and would sure love to build up a mess of spares, as it seems I'll need them. Any input is appreciated.

Default Lifting rear wheels?

Check the caster! If you have to much positive caster you will lift the rear tire in hard cornering

Hicheef - don't bother with dogbones. Just get the Mugen original Universals, really tough. Some hopup ones are not tough at all. Especially 3Racing ones!!! They snap!!!
