could some1 tell me what the best is for tight high grip track.

With centre post or not?
Why will this change the set up, is it for rigidity?

I normally use HPI white front and pink rear for SoCal.

AE springs are slightly stiffer.

after installing the new HPI diff screw and T-nut...
the TC3 diff mod is easier to install. I like the 2mm hex on the TC3 screw vs HPI's slotted screw. plus the TC3 T-nut and screw cost a dollar or two less.

Ramon what you say correct i also buy a pro 2005 spec t-nut and screw 4 Bucks after i install it in my rear diff the problem still the same did not solve also but the TC3 t-nut modified after i had install it did not slip at all even i adjust until loose.

Anyone here know the popular spring setup for asphalt and carpet stock. I'm thinking about getting the spring set, but i don't want to spend $30 on a setp of spring i might not need.

one of each set is all you need for asphalt and carpet.

320(18.0) #6548 PINK
340(19.0) #6544 GOLD Stock Spring.
363(20.3) #6545 WHITE
388(21.7) #6546 YELLOW
400(22.4) #6542 RED

right now I'm using Yellow and gold for asphalt w/rubber tires.

So that when you hold one wheel and the spur gear you can hardly turn the wheel on the opposite side.
