Btw, great site!
The small separate top deck piece at the rear of the 416. The 416 WE edition has a one piece top deck and not 2 separate pieces. You can cut the old one to get a similar effect (or buy a new one piece one)

i've got a tendency to believe that as long as about 1mm of wheel hub goes inside the rim then you should be ok (freak occurances aside )

i think realistically though, if you want 1mm or more of spacers then you should be moving to the 6mm hubs

Thats right ! I had spacers on my rear wheels at Region 5 and I got clipped by a backmarker and off t came .. Cost me the main. lol

Ha! Dark blue would be a Yokomo/AE. Happy New Year

Thanks Stein. Which top deck do you prefer in the low bite tracks that you might run on?

They should be on the XRay website. They give "guess-ta-ments" on what they are or what they are rated between.

Apparently someone actually measured like every TC spring on the market and put the data into one table. This guy's numbers on new vs. old Xray springs don't agree at all with Xray's comparison chart.

If those measures are from Ling Tong, he used spring gauge at the engineering company he works at. High confidence that he got it right.

the Ling Tong ones are on Ed's website in the "universal spring chart"..

i trust these measurements without a doubt..
consistency in the testing method at least shows me which ones might be a good choice from what i currently use etc

I now always run a one piece topdeck on my "old" 416. Got it from a company in Finland, you find it if you check back on this thread from last fall. Excellent service, had it 2 days.

Yes, and the rear piece appears to be cut through the middle.
