What do you want to know. There's a little bit of info hidden in the new xray manuals as you assemble them.

Also depends on vehicle type, setup on a 10th 2wd is different to a 8th 4wd. I've been racing these things for far too long and I still learn(or change opinion) on things every time I run or read a post ...

This is a basic setup info, this is helpful as it tells you what effects changes make to handling.

I put together a Touring Car setup guide a while back using bits and pieces I found on the net. Got it linked on the CMR forum:

Don't know if its of any help to you but thought I'd mention it anyway (y)
