for rubbers I'd recommend a droop of 6 up front and 5 in the rear. 5/4 rolls to much and is not a precise to drive.

I'd also would use middle wheelbase in the rear with no spacers under the suspension blocks and 1mm spacers under the blocks up front.

I think i have the general stuff sorted. ie. springs, camber, toe, shock positiongs. I need the other nitty gritty stuff like droop, and the rest of it. What spacers should i be running under the suspension mounts?
Just ran my BD on carpet with foams tonight as every friday night. First of all forget the spool, you wanna run Diff / Diff. 4.5 to 5 mm ride height with 1.5 mm front droop and 2mm in the rear measured on lift. 2.5 degree rear toe or less. 1.5 to 2 degrees camber f&r. 1mm spacers under all blocks and play with the roll centers to balance the car. Probably no sway bars, #2 pistons with 50wt up front and 40wt rear 20-25lb springs up front and 16-20 in the rear depending on the feel you want. I tried 1mm kick up in the front tonight and it made the car twichy (didn't like it) but it did handle a couple of little bumps we have under our carpet better. I run the stock uprights, about the middle hole f&r, graphite arms, hubs and blocks. This set up works for me, hope it helps you out.

Oh...BTW I also run the hard chassis and Bomber top deck.

any one know if masami measures his droop from the chassis to the block or from the amount of travel? got a rubber/carpet setup off yok usa and he uses 6 droop all round - give or take. seems very little up movement to me with 5mm ride height. Any help?

6/6 droop measured from bottom of arm will work good with rubbers on carpet, in fact i ran 7/5 last week and it was very good. Their is very little up travle but it works well.

PS i used the AE droop gage.

All depends on what the grip is like. Less droop for when the grip is up.

I own a Yokomo BD and I was wondering what the top three on-line sites are for getting Yokomo BD parts? I've found a few sites but there isn't much to choose from. Thanks!
