All TC3 kits come with the lightweight diffs.

I bought the racer kit the last time, swapped off my threaded shock bodies and sold the old car with the composite bodies.

The only upgrades I think are very good to have are the optional A-Arm mounts, ti turnbuckles, threaded shocks, and a better foam bumper.

The BRP nerfwings are also a very nice thing to have.

Diesel 31:

"1st, ask yourself what you are lacking."

I'm lacking a budget and driving skills. The former is due to the wife, the latter is due to drugs in the late 60s.

You offer good advice.

Thank you,

Hey Guys:

I'm new to this Web site stuff and need some help with the abbreviations.

LOL = "lots of luck" or "lots of laughs"?
LMAO = "laugh my ass off" or "leave me alone, 'Ozzfest is on"?

I also need some opinions.

Just switched from Yok SP to TC3 and don't want to give up my Andy's Stratus body. You know the hassle with stickers - I don't want to take my old Yok stickers off and since I run the Yok Sprints, I figure its ok to leave them on. (I covered up the old Yok mounting holes with TC3 stickers.)

Leave the Yok stickers or take 'em off?

OK, on a more serious note. For any of you new converts from Yok-ism who still have springs left, here's what I calculate the spring rates to be:

lbs/inch Grams/3mm
Yok-Black 9.69 519.00
Yok-White10.47 561.00
Yok-Blue 11.03 591.00
AE-Green 12.00 642.89
Yok-Yellow12.88 690.00
Yok-Pink 13.12 703.00
Yok-Green13.78 738.00
AE-Silver 14.50 776.82
AE-Blue 17.00 910.76
Yok-Orange17.71 949.00
AE-Gold 19.50 1044.69
AE-Red 22.00 1178.63
AE-Copper25.00 1339.35

Why is it Yok makes everything so cryptic? Its a linear spring, so why not just say grams/mm or even better yet, publish the rates in lbs/inch for us Americans?

LMU

(That's Let Me Up, the b.s. is getting too deep on the floor.)

Ya' know these numbers don't look right.

From Speedo on the Yok thread:

"Yeah, I tested the springs, measure the length, and 20 percent from both extremes and the machine tells ya.

The softest GT4 spring is 21lb, MR4 orange is 22, green, 19, yellow 16. Obviously the springs are in 3lb incriments, so you can go from there."

Sounds more like it. Did some of my own simple deflection tests and Speedo's right.

Chart should like this:

lbs/inch
AE-Green 12.00
AE-Silver 14.50
Yok-Yellow16.00
AE-Blue 17.00
Yok-Pink 17.50 ?
Yok-Green19.00
AE-Gold 19.50
Yok-Orange22.00
AE-Red 22.00
AE-Copper25.00

Barney Rubble - scroll back a little bit....there was a heated discussion about this topic not too long ago. No need to repeat it.

wow, I just found out you can buy the threaded shock bodies without buying the whole shock kit. That's cool. So can I used the composite shock caps with the threaded bodies? that way I don't need to buy the whole shock kit and save me about 20 bucks or so. I have only run the car about 5 weekends so I don't think I am due for new shafts or anything like that.
