We're making our first trip to the Akron indoor rally this weekend.  I'm looking for baseline setup suggestions for a stock car.  Any help would be much appreciated!

It is a ramp race; therefore, max tail.
Most ramps are not perfectly flat and the plywood is soft; therefore, loose in front and snug in back.
The most important item beyond set up is making sure the car comes off the ramp as straight as possible so to reduce steering to virtually none. Turns on indoor tracks will kill ya.
Good luck

Thanks a bunch! 50 front and 125 rear torque sound about right?

Sounds OK. I'd typically run tighter in the rear though.

Syrum:

..may want to hit Derek up for the setup - according to Akron Area's posting, Dawson ran out of the box with 1st place on Feb 16 in the Doubles - much better than us! BTW, hope to see you in Roanoke again, weather permitting (March 1&2).
