    I wouldn't sweat it. Go as you are and see how it does. Take notice to your gearing as to how well it fits the track layout. See if your suspension is too hard or soft, and try to drop your body if you can. I'd make it as much of a learning experience as you can and go back next time with some adjustments.

    In my opinion Trenchers are not a good tire if your looking to handle corners. They roll onto the sidewalls way to much for my liking. So if for some reason you have them dismounted pack some stiffer foam into them. Or if you have a different set of tires use them. But if your stuck with the Trenchers drive the truck like you stole it.

    Rules allowing something you can do that will really help the truck is to strap a old 6 cell pack to the bottom of the chassis. The change in the center of gravity makes a big difference. You will also want to lower the truck as much as possible. If you find that your springs are to stiff or you need to use spacers, zip ties can be used to limit the suspension travel.

    Also you may find almost no one runs brushed setups at the track. So if you decide to go there on a regular basis I would suggest getting a quality brushless system.
