Anyone have any tips for storing springs I noticed that my old light blue springs that I haven't used on my buggy almost since I've had it have almost no paint left after I ran my finger across them a couple times , kinda made me worry if its td I have losi springs and the coating on them is fine and they have seen a lot more use by me I do the matinence and I go a while without going to the track so I tear down about half the time when I'm bored so they were clean and dry and kept at 65-70*

I run in a stock buggy class (17.5 blinky). The track I run is small with a lot of turns. It's also blue groove clay in door track. I'm looking for a good set up for my buggy. All the ones I have seen are for mod class and they are running 8.5's with a 81 spur and 23 or 24 pinion gears and stuff. Would anyone know a good set up I could run? Not just looking for gear setup but the whole chassis set up.

Is this for 17.5? And what chassis? Their is a difference between the stock and the +8..on the gearing I'm at 34/69 and I "think" I should be at 35/69 or 36/69 to get a bit more speed on the straights. I also race on a small, tight indoor track..I do have a few set-ups that work pretty good..but I'm not a "self professed" expert..

yes, 17.5.
Don't really have a stright away at the track I race at. Here is where I race. This is one of the Mains I was in. Started in 7th and finished out in 3rd. Not bad huh.

I put my springs in small zip lock bags that are almost the size of the springs and I write the compression rate on the bags. I got the bags at hobby lobby.

i use these nalgene airtight bottles from container store:

http://www.containerstore.com/shop/t...sort_default|0

the one on the far right (the 1 oz. bottle) i use for rear springs, the far left fits front springs (the 0.6 oz bottle). and then I p-touch label the brand of the spring, the color spring and its spring rate.

I saw it on travis and carsons car as well. I bet its a Team Durango part, too many custom pieces for avid to deviate from AE and TLR.

well if you are pushing, you need more front traction/grip in addition to getting your rear to stick. i'd move pack all the way back. if that doesnt help reaR, then you need a different tire and/or compound. check with the fast guys and see what they got on their cars. with pack all the way back, maybe the 30 gram mass can help more front end grip. i run on clay indoor and use 25 degree caster (zero insert) up front and inline axle setup with 4mm spacing in front of the caster block on the outside of a-arm. it works for me. i get a lotta steering. you never specified piston setup so i got no comment on your shocks setup with the exception of saying its really soft springs you got going on.
