first off, afm, i with a lot of others, will think tires are most important, if you dont have the right tires you might as well go home. second, 1 way or diff in the front, if you run a diff fill it with 30k and you will be fine. all the tracks i have been to have been this way.

my setup as of now. tires may change but this setup works awesome on most tracks.

front
ride 4mm
camber -2.5
caster 2
toe 1 out
ack: b
droop: 2
roll bar level

rear
ride 5mm
camber -2
toe -2
droop:6
block b-b

shocks stock: ver 0201
front tires 42 shore power tyres 26mm
rear tires: 40 shore power tyres 30mm

works awesome for me at most tracks, if there is more traction, i go to a 45, 42 if there is less i go to a 40, 37.

if it is a big track i run a 1 way and a negitive diff.

ybakoff:

anything you do to lessen rotating mass will be an advantage. how much, who knows. it depends on your driving. but I would say, tou cant go wrong. you just have to make sure you are semetrical in the mods so you dont make anything unbalanced.

I run an Omega picco xt .12 and sometimes(depends on the track and how buzzed I am) beat guys with x 12's ns-3's and even jp motors. 1.3 hp is all what you make of it

stefan would strongly support you for using it, since he has not experienced any problems using it. If for my humble opinion, I'd rather not spend my money on this kinda hopups.

What servos do you guys recommened for futuba? I run a 9451 Digital in my steering and was thinking of the same for my throttle, but since i only have a 850 receiver pack was worried about the battery drain of digi servos
