On the setup sheets where is the pin they are talking about for droop? Also how similar is yoko fluids to associated? I'm going to build the kit with ae fluids so I have a consistent base for me. Any idea what the base carpet setting is for traction wise? Does the kit come with any extra springs, sway bars tuning options? Also is there a manual that is fully in english?

CST should be equal across the board.

start reading up on how to build your car. There is a basic carpet setup sheet in there. Most do a general traction carpet setup.

Ive read through the manual, well I mainly looked at pictures since I can't read Japanese. The only thing I was unsure about was droop from a pin since I've always set it from the arm on my t3.

If you look closely at the pictures it shows a droop screw. Unless I'm missing something but it shows to set it at 2.5mm showing for droop.

Most spurs fit. I prefer Xenon but have ran RW, Du-Mor AE etc.

X-ray, PRS and kimbroughs will work but you can only use two of the holes. Not a big deal I've had 0 issues running just two even in mod.

I've never been a fan of the Euro set-ups. They always seemed super aggressive. If you read EAs posts about running in the ETS he mentions that conditions and tires are a bit different than what were used too. I.e he mentioned the tires had loads of forward bite which explains why they would feel loose with our tires.

They honestly usually don't need much from the stock set up. Usually an oil change, a RC shim, front pin width and Ackerman to suit is all that's needed.

If you already have a well set-up car start measuring and calculating! This will get you 90% there. Basically everything on the set up sheet like pin height, camber link length, camber link mount points, wheel spring rates, etc, etc.

The springs are "the spring" to run on carpet. No options are included, but again you really don't need to vary much from stock.

Um yes it does, but you're missing my question. What pin do you measure droop from? As things change so does droop do the 2.5mm initial setting will not stay constant.

Yeah I understand. It will just be interesting as my first time setting it down will most likely be qualifing at a race.

correct. It shouldn't be different than any on-road car you are already used to if it has droop screws.

I understand that the initial droop screw setting is 2.5mms measured from the arm to the bottom of the screw, I also understand that droop shouldn't be any different as far as measuring goes from car to car, I am however wondering which PIN the setup sheet is talking about when it says 10mm.

Just as a heads up, the yokomo spur gears I ordered do not work with the manufactures bushings/ spacers. I ended up using an x ray spur with just the plastic shim. Also the kit does not include any lipo mounts center or front/ rear so I had to order those as well. The learning curve of japanese kits :/
