    I started with the silver up front and black on the rear. i adjusted the stifness depending on how the track was... if i had understeer i made the rear stiffer, and so on n so on. Now that i went to a SSC Chassis i dont run them at all..

    I went stiffer in the rear cause thats what i read in the instructions you should do for a truck that understeers (Is tight or pushing the nose) I started with the silver front and black rear, and made the rear very stiff (so there was ALOT of oversteer, but thats how i drive) then i slowly decreased the rear until i was happy with it.

    im opposite silver rear flush black front 9mm back from tip. it is all about how u drive the truck and how it talks back to u. i always go to a part of the track that i have troubles with and adjust truck,then hit that same spot at the same speed ,same approach. thats how i can tell what the truck is doing . lots of time and lots of trial and error.

    Try both black, flush rear 9 mm front. Also move shock positions out, change springs to reds non progressive . Toe out 1.5 degrees on front tires.
