Default Front end softer than the rear

Rod
I have been complaining about this on the Tamiya for some time!!! But i have to say it seems ok when the car is on the track. If you try and even the two ends up you will have very stiff front springs and very light rear spings, not a good combination
Regards Adrian

The car will have a little more body roll but it will carry more corner speed because it initiates a little slower and scrubs less speed.

Putting the lower ones on will lower the roll center and yeild more grip.

Thanks Sean , but i think i'll be OK. Not worrying to much as it's doubtful my stuff will be here in time anyways and then i'll be using a Pro4

Yes you'll have to re-adjust your ride height.

Why would you want to run another type or make of shock? What is wrong with the corally ones?
