Pretty much everyone is running the same setup in their MF rigs. I've been running the same setup for over a year. I'm having the most success with the BK setup.

.125 internal limiter
mounting inside on tower, inside on arm
2"blue spring
links @ 3B w/2 washers

no limiter
mounting outside on tower, outside on arm
2.75" yellow spring
links @ 1A
carriers in middle

Start there....hope it helps!

The bk setup is good, but I felt it was a bit more hooked up with some changes in the rear. I don't mean to step on toes, but if you're interested in trying a few changes, then here's another option.

Front: Same as the BK blue spring setup

Oil: 35wt
Piston: 56
Spring: Red
Shock Location: Next to inside on Tower...Inside hole on A-arm
Camber rod Location: Middle in Tower....A-Hole in Hub

This felt more hooked up than the standard setup and it seemed like you could drive the car harder which = faster.

Also, nothing is going to be hooked up without relatively new M3 holeshots with "non-blown out foam" so make sure your meats are hooked up.

Hope this gets you dialed
