Default Corally RDX Droop

What are you guys using or have used on the RDX for Droop settings? Asphalt and Carpet Rubber tires?

There aren't really "Settings" for droop. Droop is how far the chassis lifts before the tires leave the ground, RTR (ready to race). It is a direct result of downstop settings and ride height.

Using an Associated droop gauge, I usually start with 5mm front and rear for carpet and asphalt.

For VTA and RCGT, I have 6mm ride height with 3mm droop above ride height front and rear, for both asphault and carpet.

I then make 1/16 of a turn adjustments at the track depending on traction and performance.

I always stay within 2-4mm of droop front and rear.
