Numerous set-up sheets + a blank one for you to use on the Tech page at www.4wdrc.com

We've been so busy with the X - 6 that I've not had time to ask them, but hopefully Dan and/or Chris will send us one or two for indoor and out on your tracks. If you ever do get to race on dirt, Greg's & Paul's set-ups are dialed.

Hmmm -- I mow the grass with a Wheel Horse 14 HP tractor. 42" cut. Wife would be angry if raced on the grass!!! I can hear her now: "You get that stupid little car off there before you have it in the flowers! And stop chasing the dog!"

For Tiverton I ran:

Same basic setup as above with these changes

rear
35wt Losi oil with orange piston, Pink spring

Front
30wt Losi oil with black piston, Silver spring

1 degree of camber front and rear

driveshafts level front and rear (slightly lower before it got bumpy)

One way apex diff when smooth, and composite diff tightened when bumpy - no setup changes made when swapped.

Oh, and Losi red studs on the front

Has anyone got some compressed/extended lengths for the shocks on an X5? I can find them for the X6 but not the X5. Just trying to see if i can make up some shocks out of Associated bits I have or wether its easier to get hold of some Losi ones, but i would rather try to get the some suitable Associated ones if possible.

Cheers once again!
