I use 35 with 68mm red springs in the rear (112mm) and 30 with 60mm white springs for the front. Has been great for me so far.

For bashing what's a good set up?? I have never realy set up a car before.


I have orange, blue, silver, and white springs
Stock shocks, and 112mm shocks??? I think they all have 35wt in?
I just bought the pition set with 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 pistions
I have some 70wt oil??? Trying to stop bottoming out

I have a extra cente diff with 5000wt, what would that do?

Will be installing hara cvds tonight, no more dog bones?

There should be a screw at each end on the lower arm that keeps the pin in place

Not that I have found...but definitely worth the $ IMO. Pins never come out and they are pretty darn stiff. I bought 4 sets total (front and rear w/ backups) and have yet to bend one..and I have had some pretty crazy tumbles.
