    Racing Rear Suspension

    Alright so through the "woop" section my front end stays planted but my rear end is all over the place? What can i change on the merv to help counteract this? I'm running 70 wt stock springs 1/4 preload in the front and 30 wt stock springs half preload in the back. Any tips about tuning or driving styles would help greatly. Thanks

    I would start with some heavier oil in the back. I run 80 weight with black springs all around on mine. Start with some heavier oil in the rear and tweak from there.

    Yup inside the differential on those little gears. How much you fill it up also effects how much it tightens up the differential.

    I use 120k in the rear & 50k up front, I drive in very loose stuff. On road is typically the reverse. With a "tighter" front differential compared to the rear.
