You adjust by adding or removing spacer below the hinge pins holder.

See the pics so you can get the idea.

So in Yokomo's setup sheets, they're sort of repeating themselves by listing 'skid angle' AND 'height spacer'. The one sorta defines the other...correct?

If this is the case, how is it on Masami's LRP setup, that he has -.5 degree on his front skid angle but also list .5mm spacer under both mounts? Does this make sense?

Thank you for any help here-

You can use no spacer in front mount and 0.5mm spacer at the rear mounts, you get 0.5deg anti-dive. Or you can put, e.g 1mm under front mount and 1.5mm under rear mounts, you still get 0.5deg anti-dive, but in this case you have a higher front roll center.
For the Masami LRP master set up, well, you will have to ask masami himself, but I think that's a typepo. More likely he only put 0.5mm spacer under rear mounts.

Thomas Pumpler has won the "Lord of Touring" trophy at the GP Worldcup in Suisse with the Yokomo BD in front of Marc Rheinard and Andy Moore.

He had to start from place 10 but after this announcement

can someone post some more "carpet with foams" setups; I'm having a lot of trouble getting 5mm of ride height with the droop settings I want.

Smojoe, with carpet you need to set your ride height first, 5mm. You want about 2mm of suspension travel in the front until the front tires lift off the tweek board. For the rear you want 3 to 4mm of suspension travel before the rear tires lift off.
I do this by placing an 8mm thick flat object under the rear chassis of the car (so rear tires do not touch board). Remove the front bumper and un-do the front shocks at the suspension arm. Place the 7mm portion of the ride height gauge under the front of the chassis (5mm ride height + 2mm droop increase = 7mm). Now with the droop screws, adjust each arm until the front tires just lift off the board. You will get exactly 2mm of suspension travel. Do the same with the rear, just use 5mm ride height + an additional 3 or 4mm = 8 or 9mm total. I find this method is really the only way to get an accurate droop with foams for me.

on the setup you gave me, it said you used the long ball ends on the shocks. I installed those and had about 11mm of clearance and the only way I could make it lower was by running lower lbs. rating springs, cutting the springs, or using the droop screws to lower the height (using the shock geometry that I wanted, at least)

*edit*

with the short shock ends, I have 5.5mm RH in rear with a 5-6mm droop possible but on the front I have a max RH of 3.5mm and 0 droop. I will try long shock end on just the front now...

Crap, I'm sorry, that's a typo, should have been a short shock ends! I am sorry! Use only the short ends..

how did you get enough ride height with the short shock ends in the front?

*edit* nevermind, I got 5.5mm RH all around with about 3mm avalible droop in the front. unthreaded the front shock ends about 1mm and moved the lower shock mount to the innermost hole.

Hi guys, the car was absolutely awesome at carpet masters round 2 yesterday, it was just dialled! Corner speed was fantastic and it was perfectly flat, and not a hint of grip roll on cs 22 gls! Qualified second in 27T but in the first leg of finals got serverely battered knocking a corally off my cells, but after 2 legs I finished 6th overall, oh well.
