Of course tires are another story. Those you have to change with track cond.

Lazy and racing do not go together. If you go to just have fun, then do whatever you want.

Nothing beats a properly setup car. I have raced with allot of Pros, during practice and even the heats, they are constantly trying out setup options, especially during practice.

Last weekend, I made a camber link adjustments that planted the car and really helped the car to square-up, I went from 10 lap runs to and 11.

A BIG X2......those little holes are there for a reason....I feel sorry for you jeff_ellis if you cant grasp the concept of a simple change like a camber link can make a WORLD of difference on how the car handles out on the track.....Can you say V2 Tower on the Truggy.
