The only set up you can hope to get anywhere Dan is to get the thing to go in a straight ('ish) line. :lol:
Superglue on the outside tread of the tyre is all you will be needing ;)
Also a steady hand to keep the momentum up without grip rolling and M Grip tyres are useful. Plus my theory of newer tyres the better - larger diameter helps in the speed department.

Anyway; so when's your car going to get it's maiden voyage? I have bought a pt specially so it free's up a transponder for you... not that I have trouble fumbling around with the handouts of course :roll:

oh and one things for sure; the Minis are a great leveller of abilitly.

No chance :D it would appear you need to get the ride height down, glue the tyres, keep the weight up (if using Lipo's)and I think you're about there so no need for set up sheets constable! ;)
I certainly made progress last time out as I am not rolling it anywhere near as often :oops:

a packet of spacers come in handy to fill some of the cavities in the suspension.

When my car fell off the table and landed on the setup gauges today I noticed; at worst there is a 3mm difference in the wheelbase side to side.
All sorted now though but you have to admit the kit standard 4 degree front camber in a bit special :)
