when it says to set the droop screws 1.5mm through the lower arm once the shocks are on the are to short to connect to the lower mounting point making the droop setting useless.
You may say to lengthen the shocks... i did but to keep ride height at the stock height by setting shock collars to 1.5mm and 2mm respectively and lengthening the shocks to fit the slop between the spring and shock cover is now way to much as the perfect amount of play was when shocks were at previous length..
so basically when you all built your car what did you do? am i missing something? as there is no set shock length or droop measurement in the manual and what the manual says wont physically work im a bit stuck. i guess i need to know what you guys did and the measurements you used to set up your car in STOCK mode.
droop is 5mm at front 4 mm at rear
this is also the best starting point for tarmac racing
run with out the roll bars to make sure your droop is set up correctly though.
If the tyres are over heating due to the track temperature go to hard springs hpi blues or xray light blues which are 20lbs. As this will Reduce mechanical grip.
Also this setup work well with a spool on a tight track.
the LWT dosen't ork on carpet the best rubber setup is spassetts rubber setup which is on tryhards website.
If you use the old supension rhinehards lrp carpet setup is the best to use but don't run a spool in it as there is no front toe out.
