Mostly, droop is contained in spring sag. These springs don't have much therefore droop doesn't apply. All the F1 springs are long enough to need preload and putting the e clips on should be a bit of a battle. You could put 1/12th scale springs on and fiddle with spacers and get droop that way. So far none up TZ way have found a need for front droop. The rear end is pretty sensitive to droop, keeping it equal is important and a number of 3-4mm above ride height is our bench mark.

My TQ run this afternoon!! car was pretty good i couldnt quite get the steering where i wanted it to as i got malayed in the first qual and broke my a arms, lower arms and two camber plates today (bad day)!! so i installed the metal camber plate but found i did not like the weight over the front axles , it felt better in the nose so the car was not as precise as i normally like. i also need a tire that is in between the med shimizu fronts and soft bridgstones. I did win the main but had to stop 4 times to fix the front wing that kept hitting one of the front tires!

I am running a spare murfdogg 21.5 that I had. All I did was sand down a small portion of the left rear corner of the top deck behind the post to get full range of motion.

What readings are you all getting for your front camber settings ?

With the optional 1*plate and on setup wheels, i'm seeing 3.0-3.5* !

I'm contemplating an upgrade chassis kit, but i want to see what the IFS kit looks like first.

Do you happen to be using the optional front wing stiffener thing ?
Friend of mine was using it and was running into the same problems your describing... as soon as he removed that thing , no more problems...

I actually made my own! if you dont have it the wing bounces and scrapes everywhere, maybe i need to come up with another braces that doesnt use the two center screws to hold down. Its a valid point for sure!

Well, I'm running a RedBull body and figured the flexi wing was part of the realistic package

The FIA is currently investigating your wing.
