Default suspension setup

i got a new caster zx 1.5r, but wanted to get some input on this from people with different brands as well.

my shock setup so far is :
Front - 40wt oil. red springs (stock off of a kit), one big preload spacer. middle position on top, inner on bottom, no limiters.
Rear - 35wt oil. red springs, one big preload spacer and next to smallest preload spacer. middle position on top, outer on bottom, no limiters.

with this setup, im 29.5mm front, 31mm rear. have it sitting high for now.
if i pick it up and drop it anything above a foot and a half, the frame hits.

how far should i be able to drop it from without bottoming? this may be normal, but being new to buggies, im not sure! just looking for some input!

also, what spring rates are you guys running?? looking for an all around spring rate to start at. im not sure what the rates of the springs i have actually are. looking to swap to losi springs perhaps, but unsure which to order for a starting point

thanks guys. you all have been a ton of help over the past few weeks!
