60W oil / 3 hole piston
middle hole on shock tower
6MM under camber link
middle hole for camber link
yellow sway bar
A/A blocks
stock spacer under front A block
2MM droop
1 degree toe out
-1 camber
5MM ride height
SOREX 28R's / HPI red

Tamiya blue
50W oil / 3 hole piston
3rd hole in on shock tower
2MM under camber link
middle hole for camber link
no sway bar
A/D blocks
no spacers under front blocks
3MM droop
-1 camber
5MM ride height
SOREX 24R's / HPI red
The car is stable with the Stratus 2.0, and more agressive with the Alpha.

This is a good setup. The bite comes up fairly quickly as the day progresses so make sure you make appropriate changes if needed. By the way this setup was from E.j Evans/Paul Paras so the setup is money.
