For the 09 car we had really good results with the body 21mm in front of the front bumper and mounted flat on the rear body mounts.

No...Just mount the body with the stock rear body mount. No need to raise the rear on the Protoform.

For what shells would you raise the rear??

And could anyone confirm the order of the shock spring stiffness is for the velox please?

Is it :
Softest - White
- Light Blue
- Dark Blue
Hardest - Red
?

Thanks!

I would only raise the rear of the Zytec...You have the springs in the correct order.

Cool, thank you. Why are you raising the zytec? I assume you'll get more rear downforce, and drag, but when I ran it (not raised) I had understeer when coming from the collari body.
