Hi David, there is no problem, we could exchange set-ups. My english is quite bad, but some of my friends speak better.

I would start with the following shock setup, the rest of the car as normal.

front
silver spring, internal spring + 1mm limiter
maybe red piston and 35 or 30wt oil depending how hot it is.
black piston if there are no bumps only jumps
middle on tower, inner on wishbone

rear
pink spring, no limiters (using 1.2 body and 1.0 shaft)
blue piston and 30 or 35wt oil depending on how hot it is
orange piston if there are no bumps only jumps.
inside on tower (outside if you want the rear to side more on corner entry)
inside on wishbone.

Looking at the photos of the worlds track http://www.epoff-ifmarworlds.com/photo/alubum_top.htm i think playing with anti squat will be a important thing to test, as it looks like a large track with high speed bumps, i am guessing zero anti squat should work well.

Is that set-up for a S2 or S4 ?

I would agree with the Master

That is the setup I would start with, except I would go with a Green front spring as I like a little less steering than Chris. I typically run the rear of my car the same as Chris but have the front end slightly stiffer.

I would suggest starting with what CD says and if you want a slightly safer car try going up 5 weight oil in the front or a harder spring. As Chris says the black piston may be an option to tame the front end, but only if the track does not rut up.

Just to clarify something Chris said, if it's Really hot you may want to go up in oil as the heat can thin the oil.

I think I would stick to the 2 degree anti squat to help the car get traction and to help the car jump a little easier.

I'll be here waiting to help, just post up on here and I'll do my best.

DC you are more than welcome to come and use the laptop - we should have internet at the track so it should be all good! no idea what the time difference is tho.
