I think it is a bit too big different between front and rear shore.

I would at most use 37/40 and adjust the car to get more steering instead. Just my preference.

Uhm.... not checked with my MRX, but seems the same roll bar that was previously available for the MRX3.

BTW: Yesterday was playing with ratios and shifting points and used 4 and 5 tooth splits (16/20, 17/21 and 16/21 combos). Just a question, how much split are you running in your car? Is too much 5 tooth split? Seemed that my RB Rody liked the 5 tooth, but next week I need to check with apropiate timing equipment.

Uhm.... 37/45 seems to me so much uncompensated, last runs I've made were on 40/40's and possibly wanted a little more of hidraulic.

Maybe you need to go up on oil and spring at the rear and lower up to (let's say) a 40 rear. Think that a 45 rear don't gives you any margin to go up when you have too much grip and do backflips and traction rolls.

Has everyone else had to shave off some of the front bumper to get Protoform bodies to fit (and line up with the wheel walls)? Im running the Dodge 2.0, and the only way to line up the wheels to cut was to shave off some of the foam bumper and use the small plastic bumper. Otherwise, the body sits to far forward.

Yep... you aren't the only... neded to shave a lot from the bumper to fit the old stratus body (sigh!) and put the little bumper. Seems that the wide bumper only fits on lola bodies.

Normally run Front & Rear as close as possible in compound.
Try altering suspension setup to get better steering or maybe less rear end grip.
