Also the steering links are fixed, and need to change them to turnbuckles.
Any opinion what wight diff fluid to use? as it comes with sealed diffs. more ideas are welcome : ) to get his car more stable on our low traction track. Thanks
Here are some ideas
: fill the shocks with 30wt oil, silver #3942 AE springs in the front and AE green #3941 in the rear, set ride height to 5mm with the preload spacers, dont worry about threaded shock bodies as you will set this once and never change it.
: get AE #7160 ball cups and ... here is where you will need to measure and calculate the lenghts you need, AE has steel turnbuckles in many sizes : #6260-6264, 7251 7251, there are more but you need to measure out what you need first.
: rear 1K front 100k should get you going in the right direction.
good luck and have fun
