Handling Setups

I'm starting a new thread to share handling setups for the Mini-T/Baja for various surfaces. I run 7cells with an Orion Big Block, so your settings may vary some.

Here's my personal preference for asphalt/concrete onroad:
Slipper: Slight initial slip with hard acceleration.
Front shocks: 30wt oil, medium (red) springs, no preload, inner top mount, outer bottom mount.
Rear shocks: 30wt oil, hard (orange) front springs, 3 large preload spacers, inner top mount, middle bottom mount.
Tires: Pro-Line Roadrage (front and rear)
Camber/Toe: None (F&R)/ 2 degrees toe in.

This works well for me on the street. The turning pushes slightly on power, and neutral off power. I am experimenting with the Losi rear spring set, but I haven't found a setup that works as well. Besides, buying only the front set will save a few bucks. The difference in spring length can be compensated with preload spacers.
If it don't fit, force it...If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
