Yeah saw that, no idea on rates though

I gave a buddy my spare parts car to use last year for 2 big events at the end of last year's indoor season. He ran it as per the original setup in the manual and A-mained at the 2 big canadian events.

He ran the pink springs all around and played with camber/droop to compensate for lack of swaybars.

I have recently started playing with usgt/scale spec setups and the biggest variation from my 17.5 stock setup is that i can get away with running no rear swaybar.

I was using a washer for a spacer and that worked fine. I recently purchased some 6mm hexes from TQ RC and that solves the problem also.

Ah yes, the VTA wheels. Forced me to buy pink 7mm hexes, though you can probably get away with 6mm.

If you don't have pink 7mm hexes, bestbuy has plastic traxxass ones for the stampede that can work in a pinch.
