Tokico D-Specs

DMS front Camber Plates and Group N rear top hats
-3.0 deg camber in front
-1.3 deg camber in rear
+4.4 deg caster in front

Current settings:
3 tffs in front
3.5 tffs in rear

Seems pretty comfortable now, however I want the best setup for autox. I messed with a few settings at the last test n tune:
3 tffs front and 3.5 tffs rear (only one run)
2 front and 2.5 rear (only one run)
1 front and 1.5 rear (only one run)
Went full stiff for the remaining ~5 runs

I'm thinking that the 0 tffs was probably a bit too stiff ...anyone run theirs 0 tffs for autox? I'm curious to see how stiff people run them for autox. I think there is def a point that the springs are over dampened!

Those are all too stiff for the RCE's - see Tic's comment above - the range is 4 to 5 for the most part.

Your wagon is probably pretty close to mine

Try

4 3/8 front

4 11/16 rear

Keep in mind there is really only 1 setting that is 'ideal', so changing for autox might 'feel' better, but your best gripping setup is going to feel softer than what you are using now and don't bother going stiffer than 4.

Even a 1/8 or 1/16 turn can make big difference!
