is the rear black longer? does that make it slightly softer than the front black? What about the shock position? I was thinking about laying my front shocks down one position before I change the spring/oil of the shocks. Thanks.

Jeffery: Yes, the balck rear spring is longer and will be softer than the front black. As for the shock position I thought you have used the inner hole, if not mounting it to the inner hole - laying the shocks down should help.

I'm a little confused!

Are you getting undesteer going into the corners off power, or does it undesteer when you get back on the juice coming out of the corner.

It's all about weight transfer..

As for the front spool, I would just put really heavy oil in the front diff or glue the front one-way dead, but what a waste!
about the front locked-diff,... I tried using 100,000 wt Kyosho oil, locked tight enough to push the car. only good in a very big track tho' (according to my driving style)

in accordance w/ the earlier post about push situation, it actually depends on your driving style,... I myself (if using a one-way) will add some more steering (by EPA or D/R or caster setting),... and I always brake when the car is still going straight, slow in, fast out,... I hope this helps. Messing too much w/ spring rate & shocks will get you even more confused (at least me) affects the whole handling of the car, instead of one specific area

Coming out on power. Thus the discussion re: droop to limit weight transfer.

Last night was one of my most productive test sessions with the car thus far. After a second coat of VHT being layed down at around 5 to 6pm, the bite was extremely good. Here's my setup. It still pushes a little, though not as pronounced as before. It's very much manageble.

FRONT

Camber: -2 deg.
Caster: Shims all in front of arm
Toe: 0 deg.
Spring:Gold
Shock oil: 600wt
Position: middle
Diff: One way
Ride Height: 4mm
Droop: 0
Swaybar: 45 deg.
Trackwidth: 198mm
REAR

Camber: -4 deg.
Toe: -2.5 deg.
Spring:Gold
Shock oil: 600wt
Position: bottom
Diff: 35,000 (I added a little dab of 50k to it)
Ride Height:4mm
Droop: 6mm
Swaybar: Black; 3mm exposed
Rear arm Carrier: Low
Camber Link Position: Bulkhead; bottom , Upright; Upper
Track width: 200mm

Body: Protoform Mazda 6
Optional Parts: Graphite Shock towers and upperdeck, 3 Racing Aluminum Front Arm carrier, 39t ring gears, 22 and 27t pinions

This setup is not perfect. I was just happy that the car could handle this good. It was a real motivation booster to keep on with the search for a respectable setup.

I forgot to add that I was using 40shore tires all around. The track was Revelation Raceway in Montclair, CA.

Does anyone know how much shipping would be from Ishiimokei to the US (California) for say a Kyosho Evolva? I see their postage list and $100 for EMS would have me running to the LHS instead.

About 60-80 bucks. However, it usually works out because their saving is significant and covers the postage and tax/credit charges. The best thing to do is get 2 or 3 at the same time with your friends to split the shipping costs. That's what I did with the TRF415.

What is the Kawahara KF-104 Front conversion set for FW05R? It looks like it gets rid of the plastic cover that goes over the diff housing. Anybody tried it?

Cheers

Flatten your front sway bar or get rid of it altogether. If that doesn't do it, try 35 shore on the front. The difference will be very noticeable.
