Racer, I don't know what to tell you. I don't think there has been an Ofna on the track before. I can tell you that if you are used to running on a big "smooth" track that has traction with a couple really fast corners and also some slower corners your set-up should be close. If you have other questions, I'll try to help.

Squishy, the car that finished in front of you at the 2011 race was a GTP2.

I had custom shock towers on my car to use Revo shocks but, try this:

Shock oil F/R 800-1000wt
Stock shocks - kit springs should work or get the next step stiffer from the DM1

Front diff - 50K-80K
Rear diff - 5K
Caster - all clips in front of the arm
Toe - 1' out front, 3' in rear

The Track is located in Northwood, Ohio, on Woodville Rd., Rt. 51, near I-280, which connects to the Ohio Turnpike, I-80/90.

It is behind the site of what was formerly the Woodville Mall, which is in the process of, or has been torn down. You can try the club website but it seems not to include directions....
