Hi Guys,
For those of you running the HPI springs:

What advantage do they offer over the Tamiya springs other than different spring rates? Are they more consistent in any way?

How much interest would there be in aftermarket toe blocks for the ends of the car (where you can't use 2pc mounts) that are more durable? Thinking aluminum mostly likely, but with more meat all around to resist bending/twisting/whatever.

I've heard this too, seems like they were playing with diff and battery positions

On a side note, I've got Elliott's setup from the meeting that I'll get put up on the site in the next day or so.. pretty standard fare tbh

Looking forward to the setup. Any setup from Marc's car? I wonder what's the roll centre he were running on the front?

They have the same rate when compressed little or alot
compaired to the tamiya were the get hard the more they
compress

allowing for a more stable and consistant car trough the
corrnors

Thanks, Senna. I did try the HPI springs last week and ran some of my fastest laps with them, but just didn't understand what the difference was since the spring rates of the HPI Golds and Tamiya Whites look similar.

Any experience with the Associated Springs?
