Was that directed at me? As you know EPR is now very bumpy would 700wt be too heavy?

Thanks

Hey Bundy I spoke with hagberg he said the kit setup is pretty soft so it should work.
For smooth tracks definitely go harder.

hold up so u gain steering by running heavier oil in your front diff? I thought that would/should make it push! but I race with a guy who runs the 747, car has awsome steering, turns on a dime n i swear hes running a million weight or more up front!!!! on Dj apalaros setup for the cap co2 he says i run 200k up front but i like a car that pushes a little, if u want more turn in drop down on the oil!!! so even some pros beleive that heavier oil will induce a push........im confused

Its a combination front and rear wich gets the steering. Harder diff front will push more only on turn-in, but when you put harder diff in the rear the steering will increase again. A hard rear diff has some disadvantages but if it works on this track its good. Hope it explaines it somwhat for you.
