Looking at that setup, it seems to be a little backwards from what I'm used to. Softer spring in front and stiffer in rear? Is this because the rear end rolls so much?

it just happened that way because the car had a slight push
where you know it was coming from the rear being so hooked
up so i ended up using the grey in the rear wich felt better thats all. theres different ways to get the same feel or effect on the
car and thats the easiest way to do it.

The green springs you list, are those the regular green, or dark green?

Man, somethin came up and I gotta get some cash, I'm gonna try to find a way around it but I may have to sell some RC equipment, and since the GT4 was bought as a fun car more than a race car, it will propably be the first thing to go... I'll know by tomorrow if Im gonna have to sell anything or not, but if I do, you guys are the first to know about the GT4.

I am testing the Palmaris engine with Edward, that's whats making it hard, but if anything I'll just use his Mugen car for on-track testing. I dont think I'm gonna have to sell the car though, instead of a tax return this year, I owe quite a bit...

I believe you need to loosen the screws on the shifter clutch to get it to shift earlier.
