Post Re:- grip roll

Thanks Novarossi, we only have the blue springs that came with the pro kit & the silver/ no colour springs that look like a different wire gauge heavier front/short & softer long/rear. Can you help as far as the colour/ spring rate progression for the Mugen springs is concerned, we do have some X-ray/ serpent springs that are the same outer dia but look like different wire gauge are these of any use?

Raw 40,
I would try the following:
(remember to do one change at the time !!!)

- Take the rear sway bar off. My car is handling better with out it.
- Lower the height: 5mm rear 4mm front
- Use Mugen purple springs in the rear

What camber toe in/out (s) are you using??

Good luck

Only one problem added the rear anti roll bar and the car started to grip roll in some of the slower corners, any suggestions on how to cure the problem.

Set-up is as follows: -

Front end:

Ride height 6mm
Blue springs
4 X 1mm holes in pistons kit 600w oil
Lowest hole on upper shock mount
40 shore foams
4mm droop
Standard diff kit 30000w oil
Anti roll bar fitted blades vertical (max setting)

Rear end

Ride height 6mm
Blue springs
3 X 1mm holes in pistons kit 600w oil
Middle hole on upper shock mount
35 shore foams
8mm droop
Standard diff 5000w oil
Anti roll bar fitted

he loves this car
Hi Pepe, heres the set up from my earlier post. How many different springs are available for the mugen i.e. how many different colours/ rates and what order softest to hardest. I'm running 2deg of camber all round, 1deg toe-in on front and 3deg toe-in on rear.

Thanks for you help.

I have heard that the Xray/Seprent springs have the same rates as the Mugens. So chances that the springs are having the same diameter will infer that they possibly have the same rate. The hardest to softest Xray/Seprent springs are as follows;

Blue
Red
Yellow
White
Orange

Hope this helps.
