The Vegas set-up was very close to what we always run. We went with a little heavier shock oil than normal, and the front tires were only glued about 3/4's of the sidewall.
The track was relatively low grip, so finding a nice balance in the car was very important. Note: you can see the yellow paint and #118 on the chassis. These are chassis tech marks left over from the Worlds in Italy.
As always, the car Mike uses (or any of our team guys) is the same car you get from your local hobby store or on-line. Nothing really special, just good preparation and some great driving.
