you might want to try the set ups from Josh Cyrul ,out of his website , the track at Brazil was a tricky track with alot of elevation changes. Try this set up

Default Setup for solid front

Guys, I am currently trying out the solid front on a medium traction track. My fist setup was using 2k oil at the rear. The car generally handled well with softer shore tyres. Once I changed the silicon oil for the rear to 10k the car started throwing (ie making a u turn when on throttle) everytime i throttle out of the corners. Has anyone found a nice setup for solid front? Your advice much appreciated.

Next question: the rear suspension holder comes in "H" and "L". What's the difference?

Takuya Itou used the front solid in Brazil WC.

It changes the rear roll center. My guess is H for high and L for low rear center. High rear roll center makes the rear end of the car flatter and does not roll so much. Good for smooth and high tracktion tracks. Vice versa for the low rear roll center.
