Sorry if this has been asked before but I've only run my FK once and could do with some advice on setup. Don't know how many people run schumacher carpet dragons but I could do with some setups if any one has any.

Also, I'm sure this will have been asked before but how many FK drivers have changed to the normal front diff. I was quite surprised that it felt a comfortable drive with the one-way and it seemed un-wieldly when I put the normal diff in.

What setup changes should I make when installing a oneway. Should I stiffen up the front springs or leave them the same. I've always run a diff or spool.

Go to cefx.net and use Josh's Carpet Nats setup with the exception of light purple springs in the front and violet springs in the rear. Or just use his setup in the new Car Action.

Just squeeze harder. Also, make sure that there's no flashing on the pieces that is interfering with the fit.

I converted my Evo to short arms and didn't need new axles
There are a few other parts you will need though.
