For me the ride height gauge wasn't wide enough and I was always concerned I wasn't getting the pod even left to right...so I use 2 of them side by side...perfect fit

Mahalo Mr. Hooker,

That's what happens when your setup board is made from volcanic ash...

Still jealous about where you live.

If you have two sizes, I am guessing that .50mm should be similar to the old white and the .55mm should be the old red cone screws.

I got the same as bullfrog. I'll have to measure them later on.

Dumper,

Is there an equivalency chart for the new and old springs? Side and center.

Watch out for your Xmas present...

Bill

Slapmaster aka Brian put together a spring chart for the center springs. I believe it is on his website.

Ditto-That would be helpful also. Wish I found that site earlier. Could have used something else. Thanks for the info.
Since I've been racing just indoors I've switcfhed to the 1/12th kingpins and springs. Went to the .55 front spring Everything else is the same.Red center and .50 sides.

Yes, they are; BUT, the location holes for attaching either one of the available foam bumpers are in different locations between the #1757 and the newer #17571 graphite bumpers. This can affect the body position on the car.

Also, the body post holes in the full-sized #1759 Foam Bumper do not line up with the holes provided on the newer #17571 graphite bumper. Had to drill two new holes in the graphite bumper for the body posts to use that more absorbing bumper on my asphalt car. And doing this MOVED THE BODY POSTS.

Otherwise, the #1760 Trimmed Foam Bumper works on either graphite bumper without the need to drill holes.

Took me awhile to figure out the differences in the graphite and foam bumper parts when the holes did not line up on the #17571/#1759 bumper combination. LOL

I got to drive the new SE this weekend and i was faster with it then the LE!

I could be wrong, but the .50 are like the old blues and .55 to be whites.
I ran the stock front springs, blue spooge in the tubes with white pod springs, red center spring. I noticed the car had good on-throttle steering but lacked a little off throttle.
Looking forward to some more track time.

Hi szegab,

Not sure I understand your question...See my response above regarding the minor changes to the older vs. newer bumper components which does affect body fitment between an LE and SE.

If that is not it...please provide a little more detail.

Thanks.

Bill

After 3 test days, I do now have my new SE doing faster laps than my well-tuned LE on Antioch's indoor asphalt track. Apparently, the SE with its narrower chassis can get through Antioch's switchback turns a tad faster.

But, I can't wait to get back on some carpet again.

The SE rocks!
