No need to

I run droop of 6/5.5 and ride height 4.5/5. Using the droop gauge that's how the numbers are measured.

The colored springs vary slightly in spring rate compared to the milky blue springs.

Tamiya used to offer a screw kit that was all aluminum on the top, and the bottom screws were titanium. Unfortunatly, discontinued.

Square offers the same product though. If your interested in the blue aluminum Tamiya screws there also sold seperately in limited sizes. Check out Rc Mushroom, and see if they have anything you like.

Have a question,

Based on the 416x manual. When the front rear suspension 1C is flipped upside down and the 3mm spacer is under the block. Is that a "low" roll center and whatever else is the amount shimmed up? such as .5mm or 1mm? Also does it equal the front block as "low"?

I hope that is as clear as mud.

Use the split blocks they are less confusing

You're correct though, 3mm is the same as running the front flat on the deck, so when you see a setup sheet with a value that means in addition to the 3mm.

Thanks Craig for the info.

Why does know one run the diffs. high? It has very good results with other cars. I was going to try but the front stock spool rubs the top Al. camber mounts.

I believe that is why no one does.

How can you tell the difference in the split blocks? They don't have the same markings as the typical suspension mounts.

Thanks in advance.
