I'm glad my wife is busy making cookies with the girls...lol.. She wouldn't have seen me with the calipers against my monitor scaling the image you posted and trying to sort out the dimensions...lol... From what I can gather - 42.5mm center/center of mounting and 13.25-13.5 for the output.... Anyone else care to try - We'll go with the average...

Josh, do you have time to design new shock towers and lower deck for my 414. If interested email me at [email protected] I will share my ideas thru email.

I just pulled mine out, 42.5 and 13.5 look good.

I ran mine for the first time yesterday and was really happy with it. The car TURNS...................... It is only going to get faster. I will take some pictures at some point and post them on here.

Default Z4

Hey Josh

A bit of a noob question about your CEFX`s Z4 rear hubs and wheels would there be any advantage using this setup on a low traction dusty asphalt outdoor track over the conventional let`s say xceed offset rims.

I really like the idea and they look fabulous

Generally use 40s fronts 28s-30s rears

Cheers Daniel

Ok guys I know I asked awhile back about setups, but my local track put a humidifier in a few weeks ago and the bit went from almost none to a solid mid bit track within a week. I know Josh said his setups were based off very high bit tracks, so anyone out there race on low to mid bit tracks.

I thought I would start with .018 front springs, blue center and crc white side springs. Not really sure what a good center shock oil should be or what effect thicker or thinner oil has on the handling. I'm running the inline setup. What kinda free play is good to have on the front springs, or set it so there is no free play.

Where can I get the linner tweak springs from, I ordered the spring cups but there are no springs listed on the web site.

Someone out there has to have a good starting setup, I'm getting beat by a CRC and I struggle with setups. I'm 1 1/2 to 2 laps off the pace.

You will probably want a softer side spring like the AE black. Inline seems to prefer softer or it can "diff" mid corner.

Speedmerchant has the linear springs.

You didn't say anything about how the car currently feels?

You know what is somewhat funny? I had my fastest runs this past week of racing using the inline setup with copper center and gold side springs. Every single person I have spoken with has said the inline setup prefers softer springs, but who knows ?

Some tracks it probably works. At my track with my car, anything harder than an AE blue diffs even with brick front springs. I want to try going down to blacks (what most other guys are running) and going softer on the front too.
