Okay, I will try Teemu's way. Can someone please explain in detail exactly how it is done? (do you just place the car ready to run on a flat surface and use a ruler to measure out 24mm to where the cvd is? Or are there other steps involved? Sorry for theses stupid questions, but I have never encountered measuring droop this way.

Make sure your camber is set perfectly before you set droop as the angle of the axle can change your reading. Then take the wheels off and set the car on a flat setup board. Take your calipers and set them to the droop you need, i.e. 24mm. Use the back of the calipers where the rod extends to measure to the top of the axle and adjust until it's just touching the calipers. I hope that describes it right. If not, let me know and I'll take a pic and post it.

i was sent a chart for rubber tires on excel and it tells you axle hight for amount of droop proportional to ride height. its set now for 62 and 63mm tires ok. im not sure if it will work for mi2ec its set for mi2 standard version.
on another note what a good droop set up i was thinking 4mm all round?? lol axle height from the board is 24mm
btw do you guy measure the height from:
the cvd bone or the thread tthat the wheel nut goes on?
any way. i found it super simple and accurate

Thanks for the help,Car was good tonight.Had some bad luck in the main but ran some good lap times.
