rcfriend the set up that comes with the c-hub kit is a very good starting point for carpet. but real close for asphault. two thing you'll have to change depending on the track condidtion. one droop you'll have to put a little sag in the arms a little more if the track is bumpy. two change the dampning again this is more to the track and your driving style. but just remember to keep a very nuetral feel in the car and you'll be fast.

hey guys, ran my evo2 on carpet tonight. i tryed 55wt oil up front with assoc. purple springs and 50wt w/assoc. red in rear. it seemed to work well on the pretty open course, but i like the front end a little more aggresive. i stood up the front shocks and helped a little. i tryed loosening the center onway and made the rear end rotate a little to much. any comments on what i should try next. running completly stock evo2.

I've learned the hard way that the AE springs do not work very well in the rear of the car.Plus they are too short for the new shocks on the evo2.And did you use the externaly ajustable piston or the fixed piston.If you used the fixed piston which ones did you use?

I am having a small problem with the rear springs of my XRAY. Basically they are too tight in the spring retainers (both top and bottom) and basically prevent the arms from falling all the way down to the droop stops. This is preventing me from dialling in as much droop as I would like. Anybody else encounter this?

spaz switch to plaid front and purple assco spings front and rear match the dampnig to your driving style hard braking drifting or floating. set the droop to where the spring is just off the adjusting coller. this should get you going also dont forget radio adjustments!!!!!!!! big time over looked adjusting tool

re springs being too tight you could use a dremel and lightly sand the insides of the springs to get rid of any excess paint so that they come off the spring retainer.

How much droop are you running? to need that much dropp your car would feel very lazy, i would think that it would not change directions easily. Even at Kambah which is very bumpy my droop screws are virtually backed out and i dont think the springs come off their pirches.

thats why i used AE spings! lol. jk, but i do use AE springs since i already have alot of them. i have found that on carpet (since i normally run my tires low) that i am on the lower set of holes on the rear tower, with the collars towards the top, and in the front (i wish they made a tower for the fron similar to the back one...) i run the colars near the bottom.

i have yet to have any problems with binding springs, and the AE ones are almost the exact same size as the stock silver ones, or at least the xray springs, i dont know about the serpent ones.

RandyB,

I've only been running the car for a couple of weeks, but have had great success. It is a GREAT car.

I don't know anyone looking right now.

thanks mike and others, i was thinking of increasing rear droop a little. i will try the purple springs in the rear, and i was planning on getting a new set of foams in a couple weeks so i will either go for plaids or purple oranges. i have no experiece with plaids i have used purple oranges though and they are close to plaids. i was messing around with adjustments on the radio a little, i run just enough dule rate so that my car isnt very twitchy, i like to be smooth with the steering. im still getting used to my digital ko servo as well. thanks for the comments.

hey guys i was just wondering if on the evo2, do you guys go by the instructions and build the shocks with no rebound. i have always built my touring car shocks with rebound. its a pain to get just the right amount of oil in the shocks so you have no rebound. thanks
