Ok, out of the box the thing is HORRIBLE at Mike's.

Tires - don't work
Suspension - like a rock

It's like trying to drive a bouncing basket ball.

I changed to my Pro-Line BowTies. These are mounted on stock wheels which may cause some goofy offset issue, but they worked. Noticeable difference.

I moved my shocks, both front and rear to the outter most holes on the lower arms to counter act the severe body rolling and subsequent attitude change that it was doing. This seemed to help but made the front end very stiff. Bounce city!

So at the suggestion of Thomas Wells I went to a 30 wt oil in the front, and eventually moved back in 1 hole on the lower to soften the front up. This made it a bit better still.

It still seems very rough and bouncy and just overall unpredictable.

The platinum edition includes a center diff and sway bars. I'm wondering if these may be needed items.

Also the truck comes with a 13t pinion gear, but includes an optional 18t. The 13 is just way too slow at Mike's. I put the 18 on and I'm thinking that another tooth or two may still be needed.

Good info Guff. I've played with mine a little, hasn't been on the track yet. I was curious about the suspension as it does seem stiff.

i dont have a slash but you may want to check the diffs, if they only have grease fill them with silicone diff oil! i would try like 30,000 or 50,000 in the front and like 20,000 or 15,000 in the rear, also i think losi 1/10th springs will fit the shocks! They made it to just play with so you are going to have to just try stuff until more people post race setups! But the diff oils will help with settling done the car and power transfer!

You need sway bars to get the shocks soft enough for the truck to work without rolling in the corners. The truck i was driving had them and i could carry much more speed than anyone thru the corners. I am not sure about the center diff but if i had a choice i would run one

I'm open for suggestions! I do agree with Thomas though, I think the sway bars will be a necessity.
