Default Chassis Setup

Few questions for the experts:

My RDX is sliding in the corners on a carpet track. 17.5, Tekin RS, and sweep tires.

Is the general rule of droop 1.5mm from ride height?
Should you use your set screws to adjust ride height or shock springs?

Ride height is set by spring preload, droop is set using the set screws.

Droop measurement will depend a lot on how your car feels and what the track is like, but 1.5mm is a good place to start.
