Unless you drive like him, on the same track as him, with the same tires as him, you are chasing a unicorn. He is fast, his setup reflects his style and speed at a certain track. I believe that the best starting point is the box stock setup. Make changes from there to suit your track and skill level.LoctiteFollow directions and locktite all metal to metal screws.
