TBO, i would use the Yokomo shocks as they work alot better for this car. Ok i see the problems. I would go Yokomo shocks with 500 wt oil, Pink Front silver rear spring. I would change the inner front camberlink to 2mm, and add 1mm shim to the inner and outer rear camberlink. Also stand up your rear shocks 1 hole and go 0.5d toe out on the front instead of 1. This should hopefully work.

If the problem still exists try 5.5, 4.5 droop.

Try Jordans setup as well

Does Roche sell a kit for it or do you have to buy it individual? Do you have a list of the bearings and the amont need? My instructions are in Japanese. I know Yokomo came out with a kit for the old BD (BD-BBC) and is still available. I'm thinking the bd5 and old bd uses the same bearing size so maybe i'll pick them up. Take care

Thanks to all for the help, settled for yokomo shocks 500 wt oil front and rear and ran 5 front droop and 4 rear droop, as the droop gauges didnt have .5 increments and HPI pink and silver rears.

Qualified 2nd and got 3rd.
