Yes, it is true somewhat but when I first read his post I was thinking about something like this which Xray developed for the original T1:

it is going to be a front and rear top deck.back in the days of the FOC car i messed with variable flex and found that it worked well until an impact even being that i did not find benefit of the full flexing positions.being that most of us do hit stuff,i scrapped the plan.i have found over the years that having flex in the car for lower bite conditions is good but too much causes problems.i came to a fixed rate and amount of flex and have stuck with it ever since.i found a sweet spot for flex before it started to bind the car up and slow it down.excessive flex in these cars will make it easy to drive but not carry corner speed.in areas such as indoor asphalt where the bite is very high,a stiffer chassis will be needed such as a carpet chassis because you will not be relying on mechanical traction of the chassis.this is not bashing xray with the multi flex.i just have found no benefits of having that much adjustment of a feature that really should not be depended upon.a little flex is good,excessive flex will tweak the car very easily and throw a monkey wrench into the setup.

Their are 2 positions for the servo to be mounted, I have a KO Propo, which position is best?
Whats the difference? is this for weight set up or different size servos?

Cristian: I think that it is for different size servos.

Jason: In my Opinion in the us we rarely run on very low traction serfaces, but when their is very low grip that is where people will find that soft setting to be good. at almost every us race we will run the med stiffness(even for what we think low grip is) which is accually high grip for the rest of the world.
this for rubber tire racing.

Hi!
I just got my T2 '007 and I im having a lot of difficulty setting it up for the first time. I have a droop/ride height gauge but NO support blocks, a setup board, and tweak station along with a camber gauge even a digital mic.

Its a carpet spec and Im looking to run 4mm ride heigh front & rear with 1.5mm of droop above ride height for the front and rear.

Do I need to ditch my droop/ride height gauge and buy a setup with blocks and a straight droop only gauge? My current droop gauge has 1 block built in but how do I keep the opposite end of the car up when measuring the downstops.

Im trying to set the car up per the T2 setup book step by step in order. My biggest concern is: The first step-measuring downstops! Your setting the downstops per what you want your ride height to be set?! is that right?!

Then How do I accurately measure droop?!
