On second thought I'm going to try a bunch of changes this coming Saturday. My current setup is really good, but it can still get better so I'll just posted the completed one after next weekend.

Thanks for the replies from those who were willing to post the sheet for me!

Randy, can you pm your set up also... I will be glad to use it for my s400. By the way, your turnbuckles are blue anodized? Are these serpent hop-ups?

Are you running the gear diff already?

Thanks a lot...

I'm going to post a setup for everyone to check out early next week.

Yes, I am running the gear diff. If I punched it coming onto the straight the tires would spin for about 15 feet, pretty insane how much power slips away with a ball diff..

It just smoothed the car out a bit and let the chassis take some of the initial flex that the suspension was having to compensate for.

The spring is a bit bigger at inner diameter then Serpent's, they fit but will move around on the collar and cup.

Stabi's, no idea there.
