I don't know for sure but would not see why it would be a problem.

Do you have the newer style arms with the hump in them? These were refered to as the BK arms.

on the setups the teamlosi 'had' on there web site i notice that the other setups than the Numan used 35lbs up front and 17.5lbs rear. was this before the bk brackets? i used 1 thick and 1 thin shim (that came with the kit) under the front blocks to raise the rollcenter. whats height are these shims? my main problem is the car scraps from side to side and under braking. i can hear it very loud too. it oversteers coming out the corners(tight hair pin) as well. ive used the 35f 17.5r combo before but the car seems to be difficult to get into the tight hairpins. it does not want to rotate(not roll) around the hairpin.i have to brake hard and slow it right down or try to tip the brakes a second time to get it to come around. my over all corning speed around the hairpin seems to be too. i must say the car is excellent in all the other long sweepers though , im just having problems with the hairpins.

You have to complete the setup for it to work. The Numan setup will not work right w/o having the arms or brackets. Shocks are too soft for where you have them mounted now on the arms. This is the reason you are scraping chassis so bad. Get the arms or try a different setup that does not require that mount. The shims in the front on that setup both need to be .05 for you to get the total of .100, so you would need other shims as well.

I would start with all the settings from that setup, except use 30 and 20 for springs, in the tops put 2 o rings.

Yea the fornt usually feels softer....sway bars would be a good idea since the car will want to roll alot more without using the newer style arm, try maybe a .04 all around.
