Does anyone have a good set up sheet for the X2? I was at the track for a race today, and my truck is extremely loose. I think I might need to work on the setup.

Thankfully, Amain had them in stock. But, bent it due to the broken chassis brace. Tried zip-tying the chassis brace back together, but it didn't hold up. As a result, the chassis bent far enough...
