Some bodies made the car understeer.
I tried 909 on RX8, tried different roll center and distance from centre of bumper. still understeer.
But R15B, no special setup it can turn in any tight corners.

-909, 23-28mm, but I think its too forward
-R15B, 15-20mm. If you rise the rear roll centre, so make it 15mm.

The funny thing is that more and more brands do come with these springs while some people are convinced it does not work:

First race of the season, tried some new spring combinations

7.0 front spring
6.3 Rear spring
Adjustable rear sway bar (15 degrees)

very balanced car with plenty of steering

I have Pirani clutch disc spring in 0.6/0.4mm thickness. Tired the Pirani recommended setting in 0.6)0.4(0.6)*(*)*(*)*(*)*(*)*( , the spring is 0.5mm tension, it works fine with yellow clutch shoe.

But I tried the Xray setting in 0.6)0.6( ..... 0.6(0.4)0.4(.....04.( , 0.5 tension as well, the car can't lauch with yellow shoe. I think this is for red shoe only.

The stacking of the discs should not matter how it is done, only the amount of each is making the tptal spring. In my topic I have a link to an interesting document how to calculate the stacking of different springs and to me it seems it may not make a difference how the discs are placed as long they are serial stacked ()()()()().

I can imagine the thinner discs will work more so the diameter will go larger (going from an angled shape to more flat). When some of those 0.4mm discs are placed in the spring nut or in the shoe adapter and they do fit tight they do not have the room to work well and will be blocked, the left over discs with all the fee space will give a higher spring tension.

This is going to add a hole new level to the clutch set up. Get your pens and paper ready once we all get our hands on them.

Yes, I think so, I've found out I tight it too much, no room to let the discs work. Is it just tight the hat and secure the discs? No need to tight too much?

Tired with Pinari discs long time ago, but the only problem is the spring hat lossing always, in fact, the hat should be applied thread lock but I didn't =P

My experience is that you do not need to set a lot of pre-tension
