I noticed guys at the track had silver colored springs so I'm assuming they were mugens. I'm just wondering which rear springs you guys like for the truck, Thanks
happy to see you back trackside a Jeremy. I run mugen 70/7.5 front and 86/8.75 rear

Ok maybe I’m missing something.

Need more rear traction on power mid through exit of corner. Already lowered rear diff oil and went with softer springs and oil in rear as well as lowest inside hole on rear tower.

I need the truck to rotate on power mid corner and hammer down through the exit. This is where I’m loosing time.

Should i try LTC gears?

track is loose and loamy and dusty.

Its hard to add more rear traction AND have it rotate better. Everything is a compromise. To get more rear bite (lessen rotation) try adding more rear toe and maybe adding some anti squat. Softer rear sway bar also.

Thanks. Iím already at the softest rear sway bar lol.

Il try increased toe in. I have to double check anti squat but I know I raised it last round of adjustments.
