Yokomo springs seem to have a more aggressive feel
They work awesome on some of the layouts we've had on carpet

Good to have options

BD7 setups don't wildly vary
Have you looked at Kunak's setup from Apeldoorn ?

hi pedro.
fyi also the apeldoorn setup was for med grip conditions as they drive gas cars there normally. however, for low grip i would try the kit setup with hpi silver springs and play with the diff oil in the rear gear diff. also you can try to go to plastic hubs and wishbones etc from the graphite ones as in my opinion the car than flexes more.

There is no online English manual that I know of
The Manual in my kit is English though

Are there any particular questions you have about the kit ?
