Hard (stiffer) suspension bits are usually for very hot weather and/or very high traction but you can often get a reasonable setup on them under average conditions.

I dont see it mentioned in many setupsheets - but from previous classes/cars this is sometimes parts they "always" use anyway.

Is it the same here or is standard the more common way?
I only use the hard upper front arms. These give more steering than stock. The other hard parts don't really make much difference as I've found. The hard parts are also slightly heavier.

Racing here involves quite a bit of travel. And if I first travel I want to race. As the weather is quite shifty in these parts of the world I have prepared a extra chassie for a wet car. Will try to get my hands on some kiss tires (https://www.kiss-tyres.ch/)

Anyone raced in the wet and have som ideas for what directions to take with the set-up?

I'm from the UK and so yes I've raced in the wet. MANY times (actually way too many times!).

Usually I don't change the setup too much if the race turns wet apart from disconnecting the rear ARB if the car is particularly difficult to drive. Kiss rain tires are the go to if there is standing water - you MUST have standing water on the track before you use the Kiss tires otherwise they won't work and overheat within a couple laps. If the track is wet but not standing water then stick with foam DAMPS.
