Tony,

If you are running foams get ahold of a pair of associated purples for the front and associated coppers for the rear, that will be a good starting point. If you are going to run rubber tires pretty much any assphalt one way setup will work, i have a nice rubber tire setup i got from Pops on this board, you can email me if you would like a copy.

I have yet to hear anyone on this thread mention using Yokomo Batts; are they not any good? I know Masami uses them and Billy E. use to when he was with Yokomo, but what about you guys- anybody using 'em out there?

if your talking about the really small screws that go in the outer edge of the arm, little tip for ya, take your 2.5mm hex head driver and ream out the holes, makes it way easier to install and remove screw, the yokomo ti hinge pin screws are pretty cool, they have different style threads and are a snap to install and remove.

they sent me one pack to try when they first started selling them in the states and the pack I got was very good. It wasn't hand picked or anything since the boxes are completely sealed. I got an SG2 pack which had higher runtime but lower voltage (but cheaper) than the SG1 packs. The runtime on it was 444 at 1.167 and I got it in the spring so I don't know what kind of numbers they're getting right now.

If those are the only springs you have and you can't get anymore then run the oranges since they're the stiffest

Regarding RS Rear Shock tower in front.
Did you place spacers on the ball studs? Because the turnbuckles are at an angle, will this affect performance?

For the rear did you add spacers also?
