i personally am totally against attempting
to copy another racer's setup....
you would be much better off dealing with what you have and improving on it. there is an awful lot of super good racers on this forum with tons of expirence.
the thing is there are many other variables
to his setup that we don't know. from here his setup sounds like an asphalt obviously are at least running pretty close??

Why does everyone run there car so stiff?
865lf 825rf
225lr 200rr
add 3/4 of a inch of trailing on rr helps alot to. I can almost hold the car wide open all the way around.

You should spring a car in relation to the amount of suspension travel your getting. Should have 3 to 4 inches on dirt and 2 inches or so on asphalt.
