I have not written anything down yet, but in general it's got the two hole pistons front and rear, 450cst oil, light blue springs front and purple rear.
On top of that it's got the stock 2.4mm front bar, but 2mm in on the links so it's stiffer, then a 2.2mm rear bar set flush on the links.
From memory it's also got like 1-1.5 toe out on the front, 3 degree tow in on the rear, camber is sort of wear and track related from what I can see, but right now it's only 1 degree camber front, with 3-3.5 rear.
Also I'm running more caster up front, so I think 3mm of clips in front of the arms and 1mm behind, at the rear it's as per kit shims everywhere, but I'm running super long links, like inside lower or middle hole, and outer hole on rear hubs, my wheel base is also set to longer than stock, 2mm clip in front of the rear lower arms, 1mm behind.
Add to all that I'm narrow on the back end, but probably kit width on the front, but I plan to go narrower there as well, tyre shore is 37's front and 40's rear with a 2mm split, and the car worked best when the tyres were in the 59-62mm range in the rear, with me aiming for a 7mm rear and 6mm front ride height going into 5min heats.
In the final I was running low on ride height 3/4 through the 20min session, so I should have gone for 7.5-8mm at the start, I was touching down chassis wise a fair bit at the end (ouch for my chassis wear).
Note with the 'long' rear links, I pulled out a ball end cup cause they were so long only a few threads were threaded in, I'm going to switch to the steering cups to fix that, I'd have prefured to go into the final with 3 degree rear camber but dialed to 3.5 cause I was worried the links would pull out again, and put a dab of super glue on the one that did pull out before the final just in case (thanks to Steve for having some super glue handy).
I'd actually classify the whole setup as stable and a little lazy, driven from the rear of the car, I can't do fast and twitchy, but take whatever I post for a setup with reference to my skill level also, it was like my 5th outing in this level of Pro touring, I'm by no means 'that' fast or really seasoned in all this, many thanks to my home crew of Finchy and the Trevster for tuning help and setup advice.
(In fact a huge thank you to Finchy for managing my engine at yesterdays meet, which allowed me to really focus on getting the car to work for me.)
