A couple things to note*

Tamiya shocks with 3 hole piston. Solaris tires using Fx2 and 15 minute dry time. Cleaned with Simple Green before application of Fx2. LRP SXX V2 Throttle profile #3, Drag brake #5. Radio settings: Throttle EXP -17%, Brake EPA -82%. Regular weight LTC with wing mounted in back position. No alloy parts on car. Yokomo gear diff using Kyosho 1000 oil. Titamuim screws everywhere except for top deck.48 pitch gears.
How are you setting droop? Noticed 6 front and 5 rear, are you using drop blocks, if so where are you measuring on the arm? Or is this over ride height?

You did not mark the front diff section, I'm assuming you were using a Spool?

This is quit the different setup, I would never have thought about 324 front springs and such a high roll center. Did you feel this gave the car more steering or was a lower roll center just to much for the traction?

What chassis where you using?

bkspeedo: Yes, I set droop with the car on blocks and use standard droop gauge and measure off the very end of the arm to get a 6mm front and 5mm back measurement. For the rear, I take the hub carriers off and that allows you to measure at the end of the arm which I think is very important to note and thanks for taking notice on that.

Standard TOP spool in front

The reason for the roll centers being at High/low position is because I was using the TOP lipo 2.25 chassis which is discontinued now. The higher the roll center, the flatter the car stays and it becomes more responsive.

Hanulec: all good

Am I imagining it, or have you shaved a little out of the inside of the top deck and shimmed the spur a little closer for belt alignment with the yoko diff?.

I used one more 10x12x0.2mm thick shim on the pully side to keep the chaasis from eating the diff

I did not shave spur,Did not shave chassis I did cut the outdrives on the diff so I could use the top blades...just shimmed the diff over and it works great...This chassis works really good,I have never had a car that changes directions as fast as this car does...It made the car very carvy...It is a EJ design.The last time I saw him he had a few left..Doug
