No idea about changes yet. I am running stock oils in my diffs (5-2-2) at the moment, going to see how that suits my local track and driving style before i start making changes.

its all down to the amount of grip avaliable from the track surface TBH.
Over here in the uk 7f/10c/3r works well bout most of our tracks are high grip and faster than u.s tracks.


Download this its the Hudy setup book for 1/8th a must have and will explain more.
