Check cefx.net again. The Novak 2004 and Nationals 2004 are foam set-ups. The rest are rubber tire set-ups. Just look in the upper right hand corner of the set-up sheet and it specifies which type of tire Josh was running. These will give you a good starting point and you can make adjustments to suit your driving style and track conditions.
Jamie,

Thanks for that, would both setups OK to use in asphalt track as well.

Thanks in advance

Danjoy,
The asphalt set-ups may be a bit to soft for carpet racing.

DJG24,
Let me check my paperwork and I'll get back to you with that info.

Please explain what you mean by "It smooths the front steering out"?

Since I have found the steering of my FK to be very smooth and concise with the BMI chassis.

Just trying to get an edge on the competition.

Also is it the Tamiya 5.5 aluminum spacer set that people are using to raise the camber links on the hubs? I had some that I though were the correct size but finally measured them and they aren't even close so I just ordered the Tamiya ones. I remember reading somewhere that those will work. [/B]
Yes, the Tamiya 5.5 aluminum spacers are the ones that will fit the car.

The extentions make the car less twitchy around center.

The FK Kit does come with a turnbuckle wrench. It is not the same spring steel one they sell but rather a flat metal wrench. I was surprised to see they started including them in their kits.
