Is the red springs too soft? You use it on maximum or in medium grip?

Thanks a lot.
Hi Virtual,

Reds are softer than Purple. About too soft it depends. At the GLC with really high byte, i like better the Blue (softer than purple but harder than reds) I also tried purple, car was awesome but too reactive for me. At the last test at Ft. Myers, we had also high traction, but even if the car worked really good also with blues and purple, i like better the red.

The sweet spot, setup wise, of the 960 is quite wide. So the car can work really great with different setups. At some point is just a matter of driving style and feeling

great post about set up . its good to get a set up from a pro or someone for a track that you are going to . but if you are not driving the same (on the same level) or driving like that person you will have to fine tune it to yourself.

Paolo's set-up are always a very good starting point. The set-up I used in Vegas is very similar to the one he just posted. I'll post it here if I can figure out how.

You will be very happy with the car. Once you get it, you can come on here if you have any questions with the build or set-up.
