RC Suspension Tuning Guide – Set Up Order

When setting up your car, there is a proper order with which to do so as certain adjustments can affect other adjustments. Because of this, we recommend setting up your car using the tables below. This order has been determined to be the most logical for proper and easy car setup.

The first table instructs which items need to be attached or detached for proper setup while the second table instructs which tools to use for each adjustment.

Note: Tweak should be done once with the Anti-Roll Bars detached, then again with the attached.
