Default mtx-3 front springs

Can someone tell me why the front springs are shorter than the rear springs? If the shocks are all the same length. Is it an attempt to lower the front roll center?

Its because front springs are harder (i think) than rear springs, even if they are the same color.

I have to do more research. I would think the spring rate would be the same no matter how long the springs are. It just seems odd that the front springs coller has to be almost at the bottom of the shock to keep a certain ride height when your using lower than average tires.

I think I figured it out. Mugen changes spring length based on spring rate. if you look at all the different color springs they are different lengths. I guess it is way of changing spring rate by changing the number of coils per inch/mm.
Anyone have any other ideas?

It's been my understanding that the front Mugen springs have less coils than the rears to make them a little stiffer.

Default Diff Oil

I am rebuilding my MTX-3, what viscosity diff oil should I use? I guess it depends on the track conditions, but I could do with a starting place, please

Assisitance please on the ABCs of the Ackerman blocks. I know theory til it comes out my ears. Just wondering if anyone has first hand knowledge in this dept. I've not tried yet being new to the car. I've got to the point of trying to find more high speed turn in, having done the rest of the tricks with camber, caster, tyres etc and come back to the ABC blocks. I have A right now and reckon there might be too much ackermanization happening (meaning the inside wheel is turning in more than needed) showing as inside tyre showing a feathered inside edge.

Waddaya know out there ??

A = less ackerman = more agressive steering = good for tight corners or technical track

B = neutral

C= more ackerman = less agressive = good for wide open corners and sweepers.

Sorry If I'm wrong, but I'm quite sure is correct.
