D8 Hara Dry Astro
Diffs

5k front
5k middle
2k rear

Shocks

Front - 1.3 pistons @ 250cst
Rear - 1.3 pistons @ 300cst

or

Front - 1.3 pistons @ 300cst
Rear - 1.3 pistons @ 350cst

Springs

Front - White
Rear - white

Shock postions

Stock -

Front outside on the wishbones with truggy ball joints to enable extra droop less 2mm chopped off them.
Rear - outside on the wishbones

Camber links

Front - short
Rear inside on the tower - outside on the hub if I want more rear end grip, middle on the hub if the track is tight and I want to whip the rear end around.

Wing

Rear if need rear end stability, forward if the track is tight and need to whip the rear end around

Ride height

26mm rear & 25 front - heights are checked by pushing the front and rear down at once. Always 1mm less @ the front

Droop

Measured with a pro-line droop gauge - front @ 6, rear @ 5 - no idea what that is in mm!!!

Brake calipers

As close as possible as you don't have any gaps on your 1:1 car & thus instantaneous braking.

Wheel base

Always short unless I want a bit more steering then a smaller spacer at the front of the hub.

Chassis guards

middle screw out to allow for more chassis flex

Clutch

Full alloy with 1mm springs

Gearing

Always 16/48 unless on a Huge track like Frankley then will use 17/48

Roll bars

Front @ 2.6mm
Rear @ 2.8mm

Camber

Always @ -3Deg @ rear + -2Deg @ front set at specified ride height

Engine

Bullitt - Needle settings HSN @ less 1.75 turns out from flush, LSN @ less 2 turns out from flush based on Optifuel @ 25%.

Pipe - O.S. 2060

The above set up is what I always use on wet astro and has resulted in some of the fastest results @ the CMCC MAM series whereby I'm second overall in the series & competing against the likes of Drescher, Sloppy, Holmes, Truman and many others.
