no not true.
my msx had the old suspension on and was set up as per marks carpet set up with old suspension.
was marc at carpet wars?if he was i beat him
adam rogers car was set up as per outdoors with suspension wise with HPI springs all round [silver at back and gold at front]which are a tad softer then the tamiya blues and whites.they used these because they were using the LWT suspension and started to grip roll.he wanted to try and use the pro4 wishbones but didnt know how to drill them or were.
iam not sure about dave or andy childs.
i didnt look at these cars but aparently they all had this spring set up using hpi springs.
one thing i notice.
the old suspension doesnt work until the grip comes up./
it seems that the LWT is better for the first few rounds then it starts grip rolling,when this happens the old suspension starts to work.
it took a few rounds for the old suspension to kick in.
for one day or shorter races on carpet il go with LWT and for more then one day racing il go with the old type and wait for the grip.
