    Racing set-up on tight outdoor track

    I just picked up an E-Revo to replace my Emaxx I have been racing at a local track. I have done pretty good with the old Emaxx but I am looking forward to the E-revo. The weak spot of the Emaxx has been the "woops" and the "moguls"

    Any recommendations on the set up for the E-revo? The track was designed as a short course track, very tight, lots of turns with no straight aways. I will need a very nimble e-revo more than all out speed. Any set up advice would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    Only thing I would say anti swaybars. Not sure about everyone else.
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    Use the basic racing setup. There are setup sheets for the nitro version.

    Basically its full castor up front, and anti roll in the rear, and adjusting the bump steer.

    Also install the full range steering stop, and adjust the servo horns.

    It certainly turns better, I run on a similar sort of track.

    I have a small, tight track in my backyard and I use the exact setup that comes on the Platinum Edition nitro REVO. Its a stiffer setup but works well for me.

    Center diff for sure. Will let you power out of all those corners with better control and more power to the ground.
