hope this helps
thank you!

In 13.5 I ran an Evo car and qualified 9th, but switched to an Evo 2 for the main with my 17.5 setup and was able to climb up to 4th in the main. Not too bad for my first trip to birds. I can't thank Hanulec enough for all the support, I know things arent perfect sometimes but he puts in a ton of effort to help us all be able to run the car, and im extremely grateful for what he does. On to the next one!
Congrats on a great showing at the 'Birds, Mike. Could you please provide setup sheets to Hanulec to post up to the AwesomatixUSA site? I'd really like to see what you were running (especially because of the spec tire for the event).

Attached is a new version of the Suspension Stiffness Calculator i creator. We found out a few weeks ago the Soft spring values were off by 20%. This includes the charts in the manuals and all current setup sheets. The soft spring is actual 20% stiffer. If you have my previous spreadsheet delete and start using this one.

You measured the stiffness and these results are the true values? So it is now possible to substitute hard springs for soft and vice versa and achieve the desired correct stiffness?

Based on Brent's re-work of the spreadsheet, I've revised some quick reference charts. Charts are for both soft and hard springs and SRS1 and SRS2. Soft spring numbers have been updated for the 20% increased spring rate.

Is it possible that you can replicate some other brand spring from a conventional TC using the chart?

Default New dampers

Hi guys,

What is everyone using for shock fluid (weights) in the new dampers.

Also is there an instruction sheet or tips for assembling the new dampers?

Thanks Greg G

Hi Greg
So far the 500cst is working very well...-Franko-
TIP : first fill the shock oil to the top ( rim) with the four blades piston in the damper housing, don't spin the piston , screw on the shock cap ,without the rubber O-ring;
then install the O ring and the bearing ,washer

Did you install SPR06 on the Bevel Gear ? You should, then the assembly will snap together.

There will be some front to back movement but it doesn't appear to be an issue.
