Losi red front / Yellow rear on a fairly loose track. I also had silver rear when the traction was not there. Its all about the balance of your car and the track conditions.

The stock fronts are too stiff and the rear is a little too soft........I personally have been doing very well with the stock springs ON MY PARTICULAR TRACK, FOR MY DRIVING STYLE. I feel I could maybe use a softer front spring but for now its working great and I've been able to tune the car to the springs and its competitive. Once I get the car to where I think it cant get any better, THATS when I start messing with different springs.......

I thought the kit came witl light and dark blue springs, so how did you build it by the book with red and green?
red and green are option springs, not the stockers
The guy eho built it used those springs.. I will glue some holes in the pistons and see

concerning springs .... most AE drivers run rear 1.90 or 2.10 spring sets and front 2.80 or 3.20 ....so some of you say the spring rates are off on the 210 are not really true... the back is really close at 1.85 (light blue) or go to the 2.05( light red)............ The front is a little stiff at 3.50 (dark blue) so a 2.85 (black) or the 2.65 ( light red ) will get you close to the spring rate of a B4.1

I blocked off the piston holes on my car at the beginning, and used a toothpick. I dipped it in CA, and then cut it off flush, then glued the end to seal it. I ended up using less glue, and sped up the process a little bit..

I am running 75/26 with a 13.5 and a little boost, using and Orion speedo, but it should be close, as I am running very low temps on mine, even after 15min. I would start at 75/24 and check temps a few minutes in.

I dont have the spring kit but I can glue some holes and change oil, any help to get that rear end from bottoming out would be awesome. without buying a bunch of springs

rear motor right now

Ok so the issue is bottoming out in the rear, the above info is what I had and the oils used were 35r and 30f.. What would you do to just minimize the bottom out? Maybe just plug 2 holes in the pistons? I like how it drives now and I just went to MM4 on the motor..

Also using a 87t spur what pinion should I be running with a boosted 17.5 on most tracks?

4mm on the bumpsteer? Is that correct on your setup sheet?

Ditch the stock spur and get the RW 69 or 75 spur.

4mm is std, or what the manual calls for, I am at 6mm on mine, as I noticed the car was a little sketchy when the shocks were compressed.
