    I run oval at a local track and on my slash i used a piece of field tubing in the shocks to lower it bout half a inch. Also since your only turning left you could set you camber on the front of the truck. there is also a mode some guys are running where they lock the rear diff(not sure how they do it) but they are real fast!!!!

    found a link for the locked rear diff for ya!!!! http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...0RUSTLER/SLASH

    thanks for the link what do you mean by the field tubing thing to lower it. are you saying to run it low with the shocks all the way out on the lower arm? as far as the camber whats your set up front rear left right

    Left turn oval setup: Get a LCG chassis, move the battery as far left as possible, and put stiffer springs on the right side shocks.

    set it up like a stock car stiff outside and soft inside tweak with the camber and toe to help corner

    i recommend a slight lean to the inside of the track let me know how it works i was going to build a n oval around a off road track
