I am using 40wt serpent oil and about 25% rebound. Also just for your info 40wt serpent is 1,000cst in other brands.

Good luck and keep us posted and we can offer help if you still need.

I tried a set of long yellow springs yesterday with fair/good traction, 80,000 front, 30,000 rear) (rest of set up per DJ). Rear end was stuck, with a slight push in high speed turn. 42 front and rear. Temp 108 degrees.

Yep, I had the nut way to loose. That must had been the reason why I didn't have enough take off power. hmmm! I should have known that one.

I'm sure the 40wt oil will make a difference. I will make small adjustments first so that I can tell more accurately what was it that needed to be changed on the set up.


MCSMOOTH: I do race at LEISURE HOURS RACEWAY home of the 2009 ROAR NITRO OFFROAD Nationals. Is a good 50min drive from where I stay, but its well worth it. Man, you don't know how sad I am because I might not be able to do the Byron challenge I know I can at least make it to the A main on the GT class and get some $$$$

I will do my best to at least attend on Sunday maybe I can run a qualifier or two. I will let you know if I end up going so we can help each other out, maybe I'll have the spares for the 733 by then. Just in case...

Ok the long rear springs really does feel better. The car feels more planted and I didn't lose any steering. Like someone posted above I tried the old yellow as I don't have any of the new long springs but I ended up using the old red. Here is my current setup medium traction. Stratus 3.1 center post 31mm from windshield.
40's all around or 42 rear is working for me
Front:

Copied DJ's setup

Rear:

200mm track width
Long red springs 3rd hole on tower
serpent 40 oil (1000cst) 3 holes
3 camber/ 2 toe in
lower hinge pin top position
link mid inside/ inside on upright
2.3 sway bar

Serpent has long springs for the rear. They work good. I think the key colors for the rear with be Orange, Red and Pink.

Did you run the wing standard with this setup or did you move it back a few mm? This setup looks like it has tons of steering.

Thanks
Gael

Your tire choice, did you run that shore gap because of understeer? I'm wondering if you noticed a lose of on power steering with the Civic compared to the Stratus?
