hi, any idea if 6v 2amp regulator will work fine or the minimum is 3 amps... i've seen others with 6v 5amps type..

I would not risk my car, engine and electronics running with 2A...... could lead into runaway car ( out of range ).

There is Novak Lipo regulator with lipo cut off + LED for low batt signal.

I do not know what amperage is needed, but I can say that I have been using 3 amps in my sedan and I used it in my IGT as well.

Try a softer front spring than the rear or you could try 35 fronts 37 rears and 37 fronts and 40 rears at the parking lot.

By doing that you may want to soften the rear anti roll bar just enough for the rear to bite instead of swinging.

You could try 37fr 40r or

purple springs up front

front shocks in lower hole

Disconnect the front sway bar.

Just try one at a time.
