You're using buggy springs! You need to buy shorter spring.. either DM1 or Kyosho GT springs. Then add retainers to adjust for ride height

It really depends on the conditions of the surface you run on.

Generally you want to run harder compounds the hotter the surface is
Softer compounds when the surface is colder.

High bite surface you may want to run a harder compound.
Low traction surface you may want to run a softer compound.

What ride height are you running on your DM1-S?

I brought mine down today to 10 in rear and 9 in front.

I hadn't run GT in a while and got my numbers mixed up! Lol

I work Sat, but Sunday I'll try to come to GLARC to see how other cars run.

Do you run 4S or 6S?
