is this what set-up you are using? if so, is it track specific or a general set-up?

I see holes for droop screws but no plate for them to bite into, so how do you adjust the droop?

Adjust the droop (down stops) at the swat bar mounts. The adjustment is similar to the front adjustment of a 1/8 open car.
