Default spring rates

as far as i know it is something like this:

yokomo/hpi

pink/blue
green/silver
orange/pink

as far as my experience, i find the yokomo springs work better when temperatures are low (around 20C). when its a hot day like 30C then i found
the hpi springs work better.

I don't used the alluminium "bridge" (i don't know how to call it) over my steering. Feeling, may be wrong, was to have more front torsion.
At the rear i'm using since 2/3months ago the old BD/SD sway bars, seems they are working better respect to the original, may be a long leverage is working in a better way. Next time i want to try the R8 steering plate
I know for someone my oil could be too much thin, but i tryed to work changing few things starting from my basic setup for don't have a drastic change on my car.
Also i don't use the small foam inside my suspension because i think for to have a 0 rebound is better don't have it.
Hoping this can help you to find a better setup, i think is possible improve it.
I have attached a photo of my car, may be a photo explain better than my English, i'm sorry for this.

Yes,
If you want you can update the screws with the Yok. Titanium Kit, is not so expansive and car became more light. I use the steels screws only for to fix my motor and with a Mazda6 Speed light i'm around at 1330/1340g (20g are only in the middle of chassis)

Not sure of the price, but it will probably be more than the spec R at $32US. Maybe $40-45? No idea haha. I guess well just have to wait and find out

Quick question on the black rubber shock diaphragms in the BD5 (YS-8HD). Are these a clean fit and an easy build?

I'm having problems with some recently-bought silicone diaphragms (YS-8DMH) expanding on contact with shock oil, getting caught up in the cap threads, and making the shock hard to build consistently. Never seemed to be a problem in the very first bladder shocks I had on my SD.

And how do you find the new blue o-rings (YS-7HG)?

Get those yellow sshock bladder and o-rings!!!!!!!!!!!!!......the blue one are on this site too but the tn yellows are more superior when it comes to preventing leaks and minimal expansion!
