Diffs f-r 5k/7k/2k

small bore shocks red springs all around 40f 35r

big bore shocks blue front silver rear 35wt all around with 1.4 pistons

One thing to do is put springs between the brake pads and set the pad spacing .1 to .15 over the disc thickness.

it is a pita to do and not exactly fun but it is very much worth it with these cars. the linkage becomes crisp in movement and travel is lessened. and most of all it frees up the drivetrain.

If you are having any other issues i would be glad to share what i know about these cars.

i highly recommend getting the super big bore shocks, the 16 mm and youll be set. do NOT convert to the X2, i hated my X2 kit and converted it back to the X1.

+1 on the big bores the car will handle good with what you have there but the big bores are a definite improvement.
