Has anybody experimented with different shock springs? I'm still on white all round but was thinking of trying the soft ones on the front.

I have the white, gray and green springs. I have tried various combos and have settled back on white all the way around. Yet, I did keep a combo of green and white and ran that way for quite some time and liked it (don't recall off-hand which color was front/back).

Ah right.

I've just ordered a set of the grey soft ones to put on the front hoping for a better turn in, but I'm hoping it doesn't end up giving me lift off oversteer.

Do anyone know what cups to use to shorten the camber links?

Well I tried the soft grey on the front but it seemed to be digging in too much causing the rear to lift on corners.

Might keep the same spring on but raise the shock positions a couple of holes and see how that goes.

I think I had a similar reaction and tried the same thing. Ultimately I did end up w/ white all around ...they seem to work best for my track and setup.

Well i kept with soft front and white rear and just raised the shocks up 2 notches all round and it was better.

I didnt compare lap times as i was convinced it was better anway. Probably should have as the track will be different next time lol

I can't get mine to go straight at the minute.

Setup board says .5 toe out either side. But on the track I always have to trim slightly to the right.

Any ideas?

Default Protoform Cadillac ATS

Most steering so far for my USGT. A bit too much for a green carpet track.

What wheels are those?

H4e seems to be no longer available in the UK, such a shame. I hope parts support continues for years to come as I don't want to get rid of this great car

-Someone was just asking about the H4 at my last club meet. They knew the car and also thought it was ashame that it wasn't marketed at all.

...eventually maybe prices will begin to drop on the kits and a spare kit will be able to be had for a decent price. That is my plan as I too hope to race this car for years to come.

Those are the spec tires premounted on one the available wheels. USGT standard in the states by Gravity RC.
