Like cyba888 mentioned, take a look at the setup booklet table at one of the last pages for a guide.

For me, I suggest NOT to use the kit tires. Use your own tires 40 shore front and rear. It will eliminate the understeering with the stock setup. If it's still understeering (which I doubt), play with simple things such as shock angles and anti roll bar. You could make the rear shock more vertical (up one hole) for better turn in and stay with a harder rear antiroll bar setup for more front traction.

What shore tires were you using? Did you use the kit tires?

A tip for you ! When you install your 4 shocks on the car, make sure that the notch of bottom spring cups faces towards the car and NOT facing outside. You eliminate chances of the cup dislodging out of the shaft on an impact.

Ya you could. You could also use some plumbing teflon tape to make sure the wheel nut bites better. But I don't do either. I tighten them down really hard. Make sure you constantly do it before putting your car out on the track. Works for me.

That's pretty normal when you crash directly at the knuckles. They steering may run a little. A quick adjustment is by using the centering and EPA adjustments on the radio to get it back to center.

They were natural tool steel. They must be lubed, and I recommend a dry lube such as Moly or teflon, or Boeshield T9.

Any kind of aluminum polish should take it off on the pipe. The ones on the crankcase is a little difficult.

3 Racing currently makes one. But if they are the same quality as the one made for Mugen, then I say ditch them.
