Do you run that weight on all 4 shocks? I heard so Nirto TC drivers run heavier fluid up front, or is it better to run the same weight all around on the mongoose.
Also what springs are a good starting point. I heard the kit one s are too stiff. I was going to get the option springs from ofna becasue they come in a set. I think they are for the LD3 or CD3, I'm not sure? BTW i'm moving to fort myers so i will mostly be running on the winternats track.

Default Mongoose Spring Set

RD Logics has a spring set that is complete and is desigend to be used on the Mongoose. I like them. It should be listed on there website. If not call them. They will be more than happy to help.

I sometimes run the 600wt up front and 400wt in the rear if my car is a little loose and changing tires is too drastic. Mostly I use shock oil to tune for the overall bite and bumpyness of the track. On super high bite (traction roll) I may even run 800wt up front and 600wt in the back.

Like RayJ said give RD a call and ask for the TM spring set because I know they carry it but, do not list it on there website yet. I amtrying to get them to update the "whats new" page on there site more frequently.

Well, i've tried the new stiffer K-Factory spring, and they're awsome
The super hard Yellow 1.8mm spring gave the best performance, awsome launches. Be sure not to overtight it though because it will slip if you tighten the nut more than 0,5mm.
The setup i ran was:
Yellow 1.8mm spring
No inserts in flyweights
0,5mm endplay
Nut tightened to flush with threads and then in half of a revolution.

In rain (the race got totally soaked ) the best setup (launches EARLY, only need to rev up a bit from idle to engage) was:
Red 1,6mm spring that came with the new Kfactory clutch.
Inserts (weights) in flyweights
0,3 mm endplay
Nut tightened about 0,5mm

The TM spring kit is nice because it come with 6 sets of springs from 1.3 to 1.9. I have run everywhere from 1.6 to 1.9 up front and from 1.5 to about 1.7 in the rear. I usually start out 1.6 front and 1.5 rear. The springs come in a little box and has a rate = to which color chart on a sticker on the box. I believe if you look back on this forum someone posted the LBS ratings and some comparisons to some common mugen springs that can be pretty helpful.

I usually run 1 spring rate stiffer up front but not all the time.

I like to use the same springs front&rear, but if you feel your car with too much steering, go to a harder ones, and if your car is pushing on the front go to a softers ones, that will be the best way for me to find out......
