I was out at my local short course raceway, good size track 1/8 scale nitro buggy and smaller. Question is I had a heck of a time turning my rustler. What are some good tips on tires, and shock set up. Is weighing down the front end a good idea or does it just nose dive the car after every jump. Racing at a track is really fun, although alot tougher than just out bashin around.
Tires all depend on the track surface you run on, and without knowing what kind of surface you run on it would be hard to say. Same with shock setup. The best advice I could give is to go there on a race day and ask around though most will not tell you what they are running but you can look and see what their tires look like.
Edit: I just found this and it seems to be informative:rc tuning guide

R/C is expensive...
The track is a hard pack watered down sticky but not muddy. Very clean not alot of dust or marbles. Pretty nice track
