Me, what I say? That was last week set up lol!. I'm running 6x1.3 rcshox pistons with light blue kyosho springs, 37.5 32.5 . It seems soft for new track layout. I'm going up to 42.5 37.5. Diffs 774 seem just right for all around driving. I run my car heavy m2c 30g rear and front steel balls and nuts one each side on botton Car works great for me.

I spent 8 hours at revelation yesterday ,10 packs, 3 sets of tires, and never broke a thing. This car is great and wants me to push harder. I'm cleaning her up right now and don't see any damage. And I crash hard at times too. I can't think of anything I would change and that's rare for me. Lol. Good luck everyone

Sorry I did not answer your question. Less droop with make car faster in lap times if you don't crash. Less droop = less car forgiveness but handles better for your experience driver's. More droop= less flip overs for me , the car will be more forgiving for our novice mistakes. To much droop can cause drive train damage, so be aware how things are moving with each other and no binding, not even close to it. I run 105.5 front and 122 rear.

I can't wait. I shortened rear camber links to inner hole on hub, laid my shocks down to 2nd hole from inside, hub and rear arms forward, droop to 103 and 118, and I'll drop this thing like a lowrider. I run 2.2 and 2.5 sway bars already smallest they make and have plenty of steering . Anything else I should do?

Nope, just find the tire that works and then adjust setup. Go to town and have fun.

I was just looking at your sheet, I see 111 front droop. Is that a mistake or, you measure different, or really able to get all that without things hitting. Max I can get 107.

I'll measure it again to double check. It may be off give or take a mm because the batteries died in my calipers. It could also be a possibility my arms are warped again.

Thanks. For others to get 107 you would need to shave upper arms to clear steering rack and unscrew shock ends a little.

Also to help others new to this car, 107 to me the front end looks stressed, 106 is good and I go 105.5 to be safe. I've played around with this a lot for several days.

Maiden voyage. Tight indoor clay track. Car is lazy on 180 degree turns. Rear was hooked too much and pushed front when throttle picked up. I shortened wheelbase and moved rear camber link from outside on hub to middle. Also switched to bottom holes on rear hubs. Car was a little better. Next run I moved rear camber link to inside on hub and raised one hole on tower. Rear finally starting to rotate a little. Still need more off power turn in on the 180 degree turns. Car is 775 in diffs and stock springs and Pistons with 37.5/35 . Any suggestions ? Was planning on going to 5 in front diff. Possibly 3 in rear.
