lf-550(5/3)rf-450(6/6)
lr-275(5/5)rr-175(3/5)
liftbar-350@36"(3/8 preload with 400 6th)
90/10 third hole down approx 5 degrees up towards chassis.
1"stagger in front
31/2"staggerin rear
front-settings lf 2+caster 2+camber
4+caster 4-camder
1/4 tow out
percentages left 53.0
rear 55.0 to 56.0
180 to 200 lbs of lr bite
4linc bars left upper-top
lower-bottom
right upper-top
lower-2 holes up
"j" bar bottom of pinion 8" split mesure from ground.

*car should be good in slick-tacky. but if track gets fast-tacky raise pinion(jbar)1hole up. Now when track gets dry-slick lower rightside upper bar to botom hole. Make sure yuo have pinion(jbar)in bottom, also you want to move right lower to bottom. if you need more foward drive take fifth down to a 325 or 300. this car will want to transfer to right rear fast. Do not follow cars in on there bumpers, come in deep-hard on inside or outside car will stick. you must be able to drive hard. Also, you must be able to manipulate your set-up and car to make it through traffic but once you get out front see you laterbaby!

Here's what I'd do:
500 lf 400 rf (350 slick)
225 lr 225 rr (250 slick)
350 on 5th arm all the way back
5in stagger tacky 3.5in slick
lr top bar 4th hole up from bottom (slick)
lr bottom bar bottom hole (slick)
rr top bar down 1 hole from top (slick)
rr bottom bar bottom hole (slick)
go down 1 hole on pinion which will be about 8in of rake in the j bar.

*I'd start with 130lbs of bite in this chassis and go up to 180lbs or so when it's slick which is alittle different then what I have to do with mine because of some updates etc...
good luck!!!

On shocks tacky:
74 on the lf
75 on the rf
9400 rr
dummy shock on lr w/the spring and a 9400 in front of the lr.

When it gets slick we go:
7400 lf
4/5 or even a 3/5 on the rf
8/2 to 8/4 on the lr with the spring (no dummy shock)
94 on the rr.

*this is what we run on most of the tracks we go to, although we may mess around with the rr alittle on big sweeping tracks.
