So I will try the Roche spool and have tamiya spares available when I need them...

MultiSpool with DCJ could also be a good option I think... Did anybody can confirm that DCJ can be mount with kind of spool on TCX?

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone has tried out the Moore speed springs out yet?

There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on them floating about, and they are just rated with colours with no poundage etc, any idea how the compare with the HPI or Hara springs?

Thanks

Nice review, and should help any prospective buyers.

One small typo - the front drive shafts are 46mm, the rears are 44mm:

The driveshafts are very nice looking purple alloy parts with the front being 44mm and the rear 44mm. You can see the front ones in the picture below with the very nice Hot Bodies engraving;

Can someone tell me why do they call them "quick change" when it seems like it would take the same amount of time as the stock setup?

I use these



They are the Cyclone D4 off road HB #61485

They are installed with two screws, removal of 'shock is very fast, and it is also fast changing position.

Have also been used by Hara at the IIC

Hi,
Because on the stock bolt you have to unthread the m3 nut all the way on and off after you remove the shock, pillow ball and lock nut. The QC bolt cuts the parts count in half and you only need to unscrew 1 lock nut (at the very end of the QC screw, not all the way down the stock screw) thus quick change. All while being lighter

Thx, Mike

Hmmm... No offense meant to anyone. But if I needed to remove the shock, it looks like it would take the same amount of time. Thus, nothing "quick" about it. Also, I don't like the idea of having the screw in/out of the shock tower all the time for fear of enlarging that hole....

But having said that, I think it looks wicked nice and I'm placing my order...

Thanks sir!

Hey, if you can't switch shock locations quicker (compared to the stock bits) with these units I will refund the price to you.... but I know, once you try them you will be a believer

not that I'm going to pull the exotek ones off my car, but are these as ellusive as the ProD 46mm steel axels??

not picking a fight, but for me these would scare me more as I would run the chance of loosing 2 screws over the one

I dunno - sounds like 6 of one 1/2 dozen of another
