So CA 1.5mm spacer to the steering knuckle's arm or on the C-hub..?

Also Matt....when you mentioned lock and steering lock...? What is that..? Or do you mean steeringblock..?

Steering Lock is the amount of steering travel that you have.

Sorry, was having a 'blonde' moment, I was thinking about the Mission wishbones that have the vertical part to stop steering travel (due to not having C-hub style steering).

I won't be drilling the C'Hub at all.

Default EC Foam Spec

Hiya

I have purchased an MI2EC Foam Spec

I am going to be racing on asphalt with foam tires, what shock setup should i use.
Should i use the 3 hole pistons that come with the kit or should i use tamiya 2 hole pistons, also what weight oil and spring combo should i use?
I will be running the novak 3.5 brushless and the standard 2.5mm chassis.

Thanks

I would probably start with the kit setup for foams, but maybe slightly softer rear spring/oil.
