Yeah, we also ran red , which is like 23 or 24 lb, but the greens were better. I also ran Losi white and black (30 and 25) and it was fine. I know in the past 30 and 25 lb springs, from most manufacturers, are usually what ends up working. A lot of TC3s you see at carpet races have purples and coppers. Kind of a wierd thing...

Hey RobK-your Pro4's were fast!! Kevin Kanes had its usual unreal rip!! How does he do that? Yup-that 20 lap run was hard to do. It wasnt hard to be on pace-but hard to finish on it!!!

Wes, Yea, this weekend would be a great weekend to come up. We are all getting ready for the race in Omaha next month so all the locals will be there. Stock or 19t? Hope you are still working with the Pro4.

Rob, I have been using the Assoc purples and coppers but upon Kevin's suggestions I am going back to the Losi white and black springs.

Clint, I use Trinity oil.

I have ran the purples all the way around and the car pushes quite a bit. It will be real stable though.

Wes, BRING THE CAR!! We will get you hooked up. The Pro4 rocks!!! Do you have a Bud's bumper for the car? That is a must have!!

I shot you an email on the other subjects so we dont stray on this one any more than we already have.

Yes it is Clint. Get the one for the TC3 and modify it. Pictures have been posted on this thread of how to do it. Its really easy to do and will save tons of front suspension parts.
