I guess if you drive through bumps it's OK, but mine was 8mm all around and I lowere it to 4 1/2 front/ 5mm rear and it handles way better... Maybe you should try getting another set of coilover shocks and set them to be lowered and try to see which handle better 4 U.

1st, how close is your setup to Hara's. It's posted on HPI's website. That will get you close. The best guide I have seen is from the setup manual that comes with the Serpent 710. Its principles will work on any on road car. I'm going to try and attach the .pdf file. Its kind of large, so we'll see if it works. Pages 32 and 33 are the ones I'm refering to.

edit
file was too large. If any of you can edit down a pdf file, let me know, I'll email you the original.

Need a bit more info to answer this one properly. But the first thing that you need to get right is your tires. If you are on a really high bite track you should probably be running up near the 42 to 45 shore region with your tires. Then you need to lower the car as much as possible before it bottoms out too badly. I have run mine as low as 3.5mm on a really smooth high bite track.

Hi Guys,
Here is some video footage of our racing in Townsville North Queensland, Australia.
The R40 is the one with the headlights.
The file is about 2M.

Hey yeh that setup of haras is no good because the tracks hara races on arent as grippy as the ones here in australia for example moorebank sydney where the 2001 1/8th worlds were at.

Dude you are not helping us here at all. Tell us something to work with, what is your setup, what is your car doing, which track at the minimum.

I run on a quite grippy track, Brendale in Brisbane the site of the 2006 worlds and I use a variation of the Hara setup so your statement I feel is not correct. Perhaps Moorebank is grippier I dont know.
