I don't think you want 1.1 springs on a loose track. A .9mm to 1mm will be more suitable, depending on your engine. Tires will depend on your surface.

loose track- low traction surface

light clutch springs .9 or .8

more droop

stiffer center diff (go 2000 up for buggy 3000 up for truggy over norm)

smooth out the throttle finger or dial in some expo on the radio

Default Loose

If you mean slippery dry or just loose dirt with loam they are different. If the track has dirt and less clay with fluff you really don't want to change unless it's dry too. Now carbon mugen shoes are the best with 1.0 springs in looser dirt or slippery tracks. Your p5 has a lot of torque so 1.1 springs would make it hit too hard. In fact 1.1 springs are usually too stiff for any track... IMO.

You might try the 086 pipe too it is a top end pipe and it will smooth out that torquey engine.....finally try to richen up the engine a bit.....The p5 is very adjustable. I just put a 7.5 restrictor and it works great. Down from an 8....

I would try 5,000 f, 7,000, center, 3,000 rear. It works on every buggy I've pimped out....
