I'd have to agree. The M03M is the best if you're starting from scratch for sure. The differences between it and the others are shown on our website. (its really only front suspension) But given that some bearings are included as well its easily the best value. And you can pull the chassis spacer out and you've got an instant SWB kit too.
Apart from the suspension and chassis spacers, all the M03 kits are the same.

M- Grip radials (50684) are our choice for carpet... We dont get to run on carpet very much but they seem to work quite well.

I prefer S grips up front, m grips in the rear. Sauce the rears, never sauce the fronts.

I'm sticking my neck out here, so here it goes. I have a M01 and a M02 and had heard that they were great for carpet tracks. My question is, what's the best set-up for Cinnci?

Putting loads of shims in will work, but will get you disqualified over here... Our rules state 'assembled as per kit'

Wes I maybe completley wrong but this is what mine is. 6mm spacer front with 90wt oil & a 2 hole piston. 5mm spacer rear with 70wt oil & a 1 hole piston. My springs I can't remember what they are exactly. I am pretty sure that is my exact setup. It might differ alot from what you usually run. Hope it helps in some way if not sorry.

Peace Aaron(W-W)
