Actually I chipped off my CH12 chassis other day so I got perfect excuses to get new upgrade.

Would like to try the NFE but I guess with a updated car in the near future, I will see what happens there before changing up what I have right now. So I need a good starting point on tight ozite carpet with the AE front.

Did you try running the gold center spring J? That is what I have tried, although asphalt only so far, and really liked the responsiveness. Think I will start pretty close to what you have, move to the gold if it needs to be a bit faster to turn... our carpet track is tight and technical. Thanks for posting you settings thus far.

I too have found that the gold center spring feels better on our low grip carpet track
