Ditch the hostile slicks. They do not hook up real well. Get the tarmac busters

Hostile slick are Good for what they are but they are geared towards the basher. A slick should not last that long.
The Hostile slicks will never TACK up when you do a burnout. The "Sticky" is the important thing in drag racing.

Blue HPI spring are the hardest you can buy. Im not sure if the DDM ones are as hard or harder but they are stiffer than sock. I run 3 holes in the rear shocks with 1k silicone oil. I run the 3 hole with 2K oil up front. Keps the rear end from squating on the launch.

I have no idea what 70/30 and 90/10 shocks are.

to get 70/30's or other ratio's u need custom valving for ur shocks.

theres a few of em out there that make em, but its really an old school trick from the 1/10 scale cars.
