use 2x4 studs

My recommendation is to use 2x4 studs. Build the wall a 1/2 - 1 nch out from the foundation. This helps a lot with the vapor barrier issue (another post topic). Foundation walls are never flat. They have a bow that isn't noticed until the walls are painted.

The DC strapping system is still too new. Let someone eles work out the bugs.
