FOR A BASELINE SET UP, TRY TO SET UP NEATRUAL RIGHT TO LEFT, 54% FRONT AND PLAY WITH SEAT POSTION AS A METHOD FOR FINE TUNING.

What kind of chassis are you talking about? If you get the serial number off the chassis and call the manufacturer they will send you a setup sheet to get you started. I would not start at 54% front, I would start that at about 42-43%, then left at about 54-56%, and cross at 53-55%. These are very general numbers but are a real good starting point, also you need the right tires or you still won't go anywhere.
