Going from the upper hole to the lower hole raises your roll center....

I would guess that it also affects droop as well after after you re-adjust the ride height.

The down travel measured at the shocks wouldn't change but the ride height would.

Idk a guy here said he had to Dremel down your Ackerman to get it to the stock position. To get the car to settle down. I have not tried the Ackerman myself

After changing to the lower hole the ride height would be lower. So when you raise the ride height back up the shock will be further extended, thus having less droop. There are a lot of adjustments that effect other things, and if you don't reset the other things it can throw your car way out of whack, or even negate the change that you just made.

for the center diff which would work better 60k or 100k for a loose track

60k for sure. Rule of thumb: Higher traction=Thicker center diff

We're supposed to have indoor carpet racing starting up soon locally. I haven't seen the track layout but I know we'll be running carpet pin tires so I'm guessing it will be high traction.

I know about the Tessman and Ronnefalk carpet setup sheets and both are running the Avid chassis. Is there any point to using one of those setups as my baseline with the stock chassis?

Also, would anyone happen to know what Kyosho sway bars David Ronnefalk used and what he did to modify them?

Thanks,
Chris

Im going to test the saddle config soon.
We use the serpent 1/8 roll bars, both 1.8 and 2.0, they are easy enough to bendwith pliers

I've been running my low with 2 lines cut. I didn't notice a major difference from running it high. I think it jumped a little lower though. Does anyone know what the middle setting is for the wing? I know the low is the mount upside down and I assume the high is the stock setting.

I was wondering the same thing after looking at setup sheets. Didn't know there was a medium wing mounting height.

Ronnefalks setup is for slicks. Tessman and Lowe have setups for pins. I Think the setups is a good starting point with stock chassis as well but The car is nervous and harder to drive with it on carpet.
