Here’s some info that will help you get started on car setup – This is a good baseline, so recommend you start with this and tweak as needed.
Please note there are a number of club members using other tire choices, but the table above shows the most consistent tire for that condition. Talk to club members to see why they have chosen other brands. Some people are favoring Proline Pyramids for wet or dry conditions as well as Ballistic Buggy green compound in the wet.
Front shocks – you should start with 35wt (425CST)
Rear shock – you should start with 30wt (350CST)
This can vary significantly from car to car and ride height preference – but start with a firm front spring, and go for a medium/soft spring for the rear. The wetter the day the softer the spring.
Generally people will go for about 17mm for 2WD or 4WD buggies, but some go lower. In the wet it is worth considering raising the car by about 2 or 3mm.
For trucks this value seems to vary greatly, so as a simple guide – set the front wishbones level/horizontal, and the driveshafts at the rear level, then tweak from there. Aim for the same ride height front to back.
