Default Ride Hieght and Tweak

Help! I am fairly new to on-road and could use some assistance. I already have a ride hieght gauge and MIP Tweak station, I would just like to know if I am adjusting the two in the correct order and in the correct way. I am open to everyones suggestions so I can find a way that works best for me. If it helps I have a TC3 and a TC3 with the BMI chassis. Thanks in advance!

First of all make sure the chassis isn't "physically" tweaked - check that the chassis will sit flat on a flat surface, and won't rock around.

Second, set your ride height with the shock collars even on both shocks.

Third, check your tweak, and make any adjustments to the shock collars to even the "suspension" tweak out.

Fourth, re-check your ride height, moving both shock collars by the same amount if you need to change it.

Car should now run straight on the track, on- and off-power, and corner evenly left and right.

Get yourself a Digital or Mechanical Caliper........you can use them to make sure that all adjustments are equal.
