I personally run a YZ-2 DTM that's had a few bits fitted to bring it more or less inline with a CA...

It also amazes me how so many people simply don't bother trimming their steering regularly - and then have to keep correcting their car down the straight :D

If you're running the stand up gearbox you probably can't go too far wrong with copying a yz-2 DT loose dirt setup and going from there. They are pretty similar cars.

You might need to do a bit...

GT12 started as a budget class, but went nuts fairly quickly. It's now a weird 'not quite but pretty much' version of LMP12.

As ever, it depends on your budget.

People will naturally end up running softer motors to compensate, and it would be possible to make tyres last a lot longer.

ISDT Q6 or similar

My existing charger (dynamite quad) is awesome but weights a ton.

I'm looking for an ISDT unit to take with me to meetings. With or without power supply.
