I built it to run the 10.oh index. So to slow it down i put 4.10's in it, have the transbreak release bolt all of the way in and its has a restrictor plate on it.

so now it goes 10.00 @ 135.00 with a 1.43 60' nice and easy so i don't take a chance of hitting the tire to hard.

If you have QA-1 should have more then 3 spring sets. And you can always buy the TRZ conversion to use a standard coil over spring. Gives a lot more spring rates and lengths.
