Thanks for the reply Mike. Wish I would have known about this a little sooner. I leave for CA this Friday and there isn't time to get it and install it. Unless Nor-Cal hobbies stocks them then its something I could pick up and install Sunday... Ether way I will pick one up at some point.

Thanks again

This is what I run. You can go 1.5/2 on camber if your wheel/tire will let you (ie no ring of death). I also changed to white/blue for springs, I like the feel better (more aggressive, I want to try the HPI springs soon). You can also go to 4mm on the front camber link if you want more steering

Droop is 2mm over ride height in the front, 2.5mm over in the rear.

On that note, I cant seem to remember, do we need any different shock ends or spring retainers to run the HPI springs?

No, the stock retainers are a little small but they work fine. FYI you haven't marked the droop on your setup sheet

Try the HPI springs, silver front blue rear for low grip

OK thanks. I'm going to try HPI springs too.
