I've got a .060" limiter in my front shocks and a .090" limiter in my rear shocks.

Depends on what roll centers you have on the car, what degree of kickup and anti-dive and what is the length of you shocks.

Randman, this nothing you can set and forget unless you plan on running the same roll centers and kickup everytime.

I found you will be having alot of time disassembling those shocks to achieve certain droop especially if you race on various surfaces.

That's the main reason why I left the car.

They have them listed at 30.00grams....but thats with the packaging.....so figure some plastic and cardboard. Over the weekend I will weigh a spur gear and the adapter with gear and let you know how heavy it is.

Preston....are you talking about rubber tires or foams? If its Foams it depends on the size of your tires. Tires that are like 2.35" to 2.28" I would say a .060 in the rear and a .030 in the front should get you close. With tires that are under 2.28" then you really dont need any, maybe a .030 in the rear. Thats what I have in my shocks now but Im just to lazy to take it out...lol. But I also run my car with alot of droop like 3mm+. So that also depends on your driving style. For rubber tires you can get away with the .060 in the rear and I would say a .030 in the front...the .060 in the front might be ok.

The Gear adapter Kevin is talking about weighs .1 gram on my scale. That includes 4 screws and 1 bearing that goes inside.
