5mm, 2.5mm droop (measured by manually raising car and measuring difference off the ride height)
low roll-centre with arms angled upward (0.00fr of arm, -0.75rr of arm) pro-dive? hrmmmm.
1deg neg camber, 0.5deg toe out

rr:
shocks 4th hole in from top
30wt, kit spring, 3holes open
5mm, 4mm droop measured as above (as per setup book describes)
1deg neg camber, 3deg toe in

full soft chassis setup but middle bulkhead brace left in.

one-way multi-diff, med to med-high rr diff, pretty loose main belt

car is still a bit skatey in the back end. (back slides out easily). I'm going to order the front light blue (1.6lb) and rear yellow (1.4lb) springs to see how that changes things. Otherwise all other settings are as per the kit.

This is on CS-32's on a mixed, med grip track. (has a fast straightway, mid-speed mid section and very tight in section. almost all corners/turns are 180deg hairpins, much like you'd see on a poly-pipe carpet track.

I need a setup that I can change quickly for a simular speed carpet track on rubbers. At the moment I run the same setup, but go a stiffer chassis.

this setup changes directions very very fast, even with the kit-setup long wheelbase. impressive but almost overkill!

Is it possible that my 2.5 front droop is causing the back to spin out easily? more droop up front required?

James
I run on medium grip track that is mixed. This is what I ran it works perfect
Chassis set in meduim setting. Shocks in stock rubber position front and rear. 25 weight Associated oil all around, blue green spring in front with 3 holes open. In the rear yellow spring with 4 holes open. Keep roll center at lowest position. droop in front at 2mm and 3mm in rear. standard rear toe . use RP 30 tires with sxt traction compound. Mazda body. Use one way not spool. Ackerman in rubber position.

Corrally thrust balls do work, but Xray diff balls are 2.4mm.

I don't think there is enough meat there to counter sink the stock top plate, but I beleive metric screws are a 85* bit and they can be hard to find. I checked MacMaster-Carr and they didn't have what I needed. Maybe some else can chime in and help out.

I counter sunk my top deck and shock towers before I built my car. Dace Manufacturing out of Modeto,Ca did it for me. He also counter sunk the top bulk heads. Yes, there is very little beef on the graphite and the aluminum. But, they are almost completely flush.

You're in NY, I was told www.nychobbies.com has them, but don't quote me on that.

My shop owner called RC America today, our shipment was being shipped out today. It's funny how shops in Texas has shipment on Thursday already and our were just shipped today, but at least it's on the way.

I would'nt be suprised if they sold out. They were the only shop in the area to have parts, on Friday. And with all the people in the area with the T2, they probably got tapped out.
