I have 70g of weight up front and I want to try the extra weight up front with the more ride height in the rear. Katsumi said that his BD didn't work out well that way but you guys really seem to like that setup.

It's crazy I have almost the same side weight just by taking weight off a little bit at a time and feeling the grip to slide ratio while driving.

I think I might give that setup a try after I get used to the setup I have right now.

Since my chassis isn't really a Cyclone S anymore I am not going to update this thread. Settings up top is pretty good setup with 108% (2.08)

this is what it evolved to ;) : http://csjunkies.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=643
