well i dont know i had 50,000 thousand and mixed a lil bit with the 10,000, so it was more like 30000, it just made the car rotate better on power. Just made the car turn with a much smaller turning radius on power.

the mugen directions out of the box dont give you a good set up, any one with a good start off set up? i am also on a parkinglot set up track.
the mugen stock set-up is one of the best.. comparing with other kit's stock set-up... u just change a little to suit your track and it sticks.. dunno abt you sir..

most of us race striaght out of the box.. and had good results

thanks,
should be free...

few things may want to check again..
did you sand down your brake pads initially?
erm.. is your brake linkage properly connected..

it does have slight binding when new...
i think after some running-in your car should be free..

Grey vs Dark Blue Springs

Does anyone have any experience comparing the Grey vs. the BDark Blue Springs? I know they have the same thickness but i think i read somewhere that the blue is a liiiiitle bit softer. Does anyone have any characteristics of the two head to head? I have the greys and I ran them this weekend for the first time and liked the way they drove, but I did notice a little morepush than I would have liked. If anyone has any info on the difference that would be great.

my car seem to be very twitchy! more like over steer /on power. Not so smooth in and out of the cornor.

I think I have to redo my diff. It seem like my diff is really tight in the front. I put in 2 extra shim just to make it feel like a lock diff. I also use purple spring front and blue on the back. ..

I think I have to redo my whole car all over again.

Ahhh! I know who you are now! in fact the other day I was asking you where was your brother!

It's kind of funny that I know you already but formally meet you in the forum! hehe

Why not? It's good practice to examine your car thoroughly once in while.

best,
