The guys over at RCSetups.com dropped us a mail telling me about their setupsheet generating site and their latest addition to the cars available, the Team Losi 8ight. Its actually a pretty cool service, not only can you store and or share your setups you can easily input the data through a set web form and that in turn is then put into the original setupsheet and made available as a PDF to print, save, share and download. Pretty neat but they are only limited to 2 cars at the moment but im sure when the interest picks up they will begin to add other chassis’ too.
