Both he and me used Sorex 28r, JB blue thin inserts and LRP top traction, and the tires was in good shape. I had the spool fitted the whole time and the car felt very good, maybe i would like some more cornerspeed but i think that will come with my new outdrives for the oneway

I would think that running a spool and that soft of a spring will tend to make the car dump on its nose just like you said. First thing I would try is stiffer spring and keep it the same all the way around. AE Blues are what...22lb? I dont even remember. I would go up one step and then either raise the roll centers all the way around and/or add some anti squat. Obviously I am just guessing because I don't have the car

AE reds are 22. I think the blues are 17

yeah I would start with something in the 25lb range for low traction and go up as the bite comes up. I remember everyone ran blues and silvers on the Mi2 and I never liked that combo either. It's great if you drive the car very smooth but if you are driving strapped then the suspension just compresses and the car washes out.

how much do you tilt the shocks with that hard springs? it seems like the geometry is a little different on the EC.

im defenetly going to try this next time i can practice.. Wirre is at the track now, maybe i should call him..

It really depends on how the track is. I personally like the car to react very quickly. I would say start with what you have on there so you can feel the changes...then I would try a run with them stood up and a run with them laid down. I almost always went with stand up shocks because I like the linear feeling. The car seems more consistant. With the shocks laid down the car was great as long as you didnt over drive it, which I tend to do.

Laying the shocks down will give a more progressive feel. The deeper into the travel you go, the stiffer it's going to feel. The more stood up, the more linear and direct the car will feel. I like to start with the shocks in the middle on the top mount location and play with it from there depending on what I'm feeling on the track. But I always felt that the laid down shock kept the car from dumping over and loosing grip as bad under a heavier load.
