Later!!
Anti-Dive prevents weight transfer so you may consider a softer front spring. I don't think it is necessary though.

I just finished my car for the Birds and I moved the shocks into the middle hole on the front arms, and the 3rd hold in on the tower. I did this to get the steering throw back into the car as it will hit the shocks otherwise. I will also put about 1 deg of toe out on the car as well.

One ways generally require a very smooth driving style. I've always found they give the maximum amount of steering. The only draw back is they are very unstable under braking, since you only have rear wheel brakes. They also make the car very unstable in hot weather conditions. I always use one ways on carpet with rubber tires.

Spools give the car an off power push, but when you get on the throttle they pull the car around the corner. They are very stable under hot weather conditions as well. Spools tend to let the car accelerate and decelerate faster as well. I find this is the choice for asphalt racing.

Yeah it's honestly the only thing I dont like about spools. I run indoors so much where you have all the traction and natural steering in the world. When I race outdoors I always feel like my car is slow when it's actually really fast LOL.

Yea you really have to look at lap times to get convinced you are still fast...LOL...
It took Jason E and Charlie Albright to convince me that the spool is the way to go...
They tweak their setups about every two to three weeks to get that much more steering and corner speed..I am so spoiled to have such that level of great drivers to help me with setup help...
Thanks Bitter and Jason...Setups are so stinking dialed...

They are the 3 hole pistons for the TRF shocks. If I remember right Tamiya's part number is 53573. The pistons are the exact same dia, but they are a little thinner. So you need to put a shim or something to take the slack up.
