Default OFNA Ultra GTP Dirt Oval Set-up HELP!??

Hey guys...Im a newb but I love the 1/8th late model dirt racing. I purchased the OFNA Ultra GTP Dirt oval chassis, and need some help BIG time on the set-up. What do I need to do to make this thing run decent at the track? Remember...Ive done nothing to it. Hopefully someone can guide me through this and give me ideas. Thanks!

120,00 weight diff oil in the front
3,000 or just grease in the rear diff
60-80wt front shock oil
50-60wt rear shock oil
1 degree negative camber on the right side
1 degree positive on the left side
Stiffen the sway bars as much as you can

May possibly need stiffer springs to control the chassis roll depending on the grip level at your track

Which suspension springs do you use? does OFNA have different spring rates to choose?

Yes they do, they are the same ones from the DM1 kit. They only fit the front shocks.

If you get a set of front shocks for the rear then you can use them all the way around

I use only OFNA parts on my car.

60wt on all for corners and black springs. My set up has changed alot from that post. no sway bars. 120 in the front diff, Spool in the center and 7 in the rear.


Hope that helps.
