We can re-pin the harness if you send it in, but you can trim the edges of the connector and insert it upside down. That will get you going right now.

I can send you a replacement connector and some pins if you want to replace the connector later on.

the best settings depend on a few things.

Are we talking about running at the track?

Do you have a trans brake, if not how much will your brakes hold?

What tires and suspension stuff do you have?
