I use AE springs so my droop is a little different but I usually run between 2.5 - 4mm. Less droop for carpet, more for asphalt. This is using droop blocks to measure.

Drop the rear oil to 30wt

Raise the rear camber back to -1 so you get more tire contact.

Use CS-22 as they will help you stick better if you are not getting enough heat in the tires.

For anyone interested, I have a NIB Evo 4 that I've decided not to build up for sale in the sale/trade thread. Here's the link

Evo4 and 415.

I'm looking at both these cars to replace my Xray. But in your opinion, is the Evo4 better for stock and the 415 better for modified? My main class is 19 turn, but I'll be running stock at the US Nationals.

Default Evo IV

Does the Evo IV come with the LW suspension as the stock suspension?

Yes, Evo IV is great for stock and would be pretty similiar in 19 turn, but in modifed the 415 is the go!
