I recommend starting with the stock setup. You can download it from the mugen seiki site. That setup is very good if your just starting out.

Track width = 199F / 200R
Use the stock shock oil 600 wt
Stock Springs
Roll Center no shims in the front upper arms
Rear Roll center lowest arm setting / 1mm shim on rear upright.
2.2 rear sway bar
Toe / 1 out F / 3 in R
Ackerman = A
Diff 50k f/r
Droop -1f /-3.5r
Ride height 5f 5.5r
Caster centered


That's the basic set up I run before making changes
