Default body height

what are most t4 drivers setting the body height at? Are you slamming the body to the ground? I picked up a hudy body gauge and I tried to place the body below the gauge, but I am worried about the front tires hitting the upper fender wells. What body post shims (0,1,2) are you using to get there?

It does work well.
Hold the shock upside down and loosen the bottom cap pretty much. Press the piston in slowly, it drains faster in this way..

Thanks... so for 25% rebound just push the shock in, hold it at the 25% mark and then loosen the bottom cap to drain it out?

I loosened the cap first, then push the shock in, wait a little and the tighten the cap. Re-do it if still too much rebound. Basically similar to doing it according to the manual but just on the other end of the damper..

I just follow what the manual says and if the body is slightly too low just trim accordingly. My guess is you want the body as low as possible without scraping...thats how mine is

Now you know about your XRay's nipples.

Do u have a picture of this running change? Hope the kit I got from the hobby store has this change ..

So far, it looks like the kit asphalt setup is good.

I would get some of the different springs though as you may need to change them depending on conditions.

Yesterday we where practicing outdoor for the first time of the season and the track where ofcourse dusty and slipery. I removed the screws from the bulkhead with the spur gear to get more flex apart from that I still have pretty much stock set, after testing alot of different things i ended up there again in the end of the day.

Softer rollbars, springs can be a good tuning option but I felt my car was too soft then and got harder to drive and lost rotation. Just laying the shocks down to hole no 3 can help you too. Maybe use the one piece suapension holders in the front. I did not have time to try those yesterday but will next week.

We have a real large open fast track.

What I did after buying my kit is I placed a small order every week until I collected every spring rate and most of the swaybars offered for the T4. I can tune for most any condition now.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think you'll need to run 50mm axles if you use spec r gear diffs. If that is you're only option, then go for it but I suggest but I suggest spending the extra coin on the xray diff cause its much lighter and you can run any axle you choose to.
