Ahh yes, the pink is not good . The guy did a very good job on it, was done by the same person that paints Masami's shells.

slight advantage for the yok metal spool i think, but the cvds tend to chatter a bit more when using that spool.

I agree I have all but ditched the stock front suspension. But Martin are you running the HPI rear hubs also?

Mine is set on 6 on the front and 5 on the rear using the kit plastic guage. It works out to be no chassis lift on the front and about 1/2 to 1mm lift on the rear.

the provided plastic gauge is not correct

6/5 as you have set is actually 5/4 on hudy blocks/ae gauge and similar.

I use 5,5/5 outdoors. regardless what track. rideheight 5/5,5

2mm on the droop gauge? that's by far too much

try 4,5/5 rideheight 6/5 droop on hudy blocks -> 7/6 on provided gauge
