From what I remember of mine (it was Hyper 7 pro C-hub version) before I gave it to my buddy, I had 35wt all four shocks, Kyosho blue springs all four, 5/5/1 for diff oils, arms level. I don't remember the shock or camber locations. The buggy hooked up nicely on our blown out track and was very stable.

c hub. what i found last night is that my rear shocks need to be replaced. i took them apart last night, drained the fluid out of them and found that there is a huge gap between the piston and the body of the shock.

I never liked the purple or black springs. I thought they were too soft. Get the Kyosho blues and try them. My buddy who now has my Hyper 7 was running yesterday on an unprepped track and the thing was hooked. He let me drive it and it felt real good. I'll have to write down the setup he has on it next time we are together.

the hobao blue springs like the one on the hyper 8 are pretty good. I usually use those or the stiffer white ones. On the hyper8 a lot of the drivers drilled the holes on the pistons to make them a little bigger. might help with the H7 since they have the same suspension
