    Suggested reading for total NOOB to RC

    I couldn't find a section within the forums and I searched using numerous terms. Just looking for the RC for DUMMIES section? Seriously though, am I just missing it?

    Oil and springs are something that usually comes down to personal preference, driving style, and where you're driving. What sort of driving do you do, and where do you do it? Lots of jumps?

    One thing to note is that you generally want to adjust springs and oil together. Heavier oil, stiffer springs for example.

    I wouldn't worry much about oils until you get more experience. The subtle differences can be hard to determine until you're sure of what you like in a setup.

    As already said, what kind of driving do you prefer? What changes are you making already?
