I have owned both I still own my t4, I found my bd7 was aggressive, I am an aggressive driver and the two don't go together, the t4 is easy to drive and is defiantly not slow!

No, I was asking if the saver hits the center link without cutting since we mount our horns at an angle.

I think 1% of all Yokomo sales should go towards finding Ronald a new paint scheme... Just sayin'

For those of you that are having trouble with the car being too aggressive, what body are you running? I find the LTC-R unusable on this car, but the speed6 seems pretty great. Also, don't be afraid to go to .5 or 1 front camber, you'd be surprised how much it helps things settle in.

yes, the car quite aggressive in steering. mazda speed6 will be good for the car if running on low traction track...

Besides roll centers my setup is very close to the one you just posted. I went from 800 to 2k in my rear diff last night and it made a world of difference.

Yes... I think the car has a sweet spot when you use these settings... All the yoks are setted very similiar!

but i dont like the middle setting of the wheelbase in front (0,5 to 0,5)... The Car has more steering if you go on 1mm in front...

And so with the Ackermann... I like when it turns in immediately so i used 0,5mm ackermann first but then like on the bd5wxi 1mm!

Im playing with different Oils, like MR450 and MR400 from now on... And with the T-Shox...

What roll center shims do you run?

Ive tried 0,5 inside and 1mm outside at the rear and 1mm inside and 1,5mm outside at the front... but went back to the simple settings of 1-1 1-1...

Just playing with droop, camber and the dampers from now on...
