I have a friend that runs a OS TZ. very quick and good top end. The car is quick and has the ability to handle like on rails once set-up. General good set-up doesn't vary much from stock. Personal trial and error from there w/ minor changes. Try to run w/o the sway bars at least once to get a feel for the full range of how the car handels. I still haven't varied the spings, just played w/ shock wghts, diff grease and camber. Toe front usually 0, rear 2. Camber may vary from 1.5-2, rear 2.0-3.5. Droop? What's that....naw don't remember, think stock. Hope this helps.

Its the 3 Racing one. I have 39 tooth rings in it but my 37's just came in. The 39's had so much bottom end that with any thing but glue for a track surface it would just spin all 4 tires!!!

I never ran the car with the 40's (yes, thats what it comes with) so I am not sure of the differnce between them. If ever find a track with gobs of traction and short....the 39's would be just a freak show. Of course my Colllari might have something to do with it too
