Default droop settings!

Basically if you need more front end into the turn, increase the amount of droop on the rear. If you need more front out of the turn, decrease the amount on the front (restricting weight transfer to the rear, reducing the rear grip).

The larger the number on the Yokomo gauge the less the droop!
Right?

You can anodize titanium but the color will dull out if you get alcohol on it. Hardcore racing(if they are still around) makes anodized titanium parts.

Order them from ebay. Do an ebay store search for Walawala. It'll cost you around $2.50 American to have them delivered to you.

Champ Hobbies, good service and really fast shipping.

I'm deciding what all spares I'm going to get, or if I'm just going to get another kit for spares..

Anodizing titanium is really easy, I believe blue takes 3 9 volt batteries, just hook the positive end up to the turnbuckle, and dip it along with the negitive end in some Lysol basin tub and tile cleaner. You can change the color of the titanium by changing how many batteries you use.

Nice box on 415MS.. Poor Mazumi though, get a car named after him, only to have someone else's picture/car be featured on the box.
