Tamiya springs fit okay, their tensions are not exactly same as AE springs set.

I've had some luck assembling everything but leaving the screws loose. I tighten the L shaped part first to the chassis then I tighten the spur/layshaft mid-bulkhead to the chassis. I next tighten the rear most motor mount screw that attaches it to the mid-bulkhead and then tighten the motor mount/L shaped piece screw. I then finally tighten the final screw that goes from motor mount to mid-bulkhead. Basically tighten everything to the chassis first, and then tighten the motor mount to the mid-bulkheads. I've also heard of guys shimming under the L shaped piece to get rid of some tweak, but there is a bit of slop in the whole assembly that can help out if the screws are tightened in the right order.

Brian, I was up at FSAE this weekend too! I heard from my buddy Kevin that you were up there. We were both on the NIU team and drove up together to get back in the action. Small world!

OK, thats all I have to say now. I think you guy deserve some pictures for reading:
Thank your for the review.

Do you happen to have measured the diameter of the balls precisely ?

Yokomo springs have a larger diameter and dont fit very well. Personally I'd stick with AE. I race with someone with a 416 who recently swicthed his Tamiya springs to AE and liked them a lot more. He said the AE springs felt more linear.

Nice! Very small world. I was captain and suspension & steering lead designer 2 years ago at UIUC. There isn't much else like FSAE and the competitions.

Where do you usually race now? I've just gotten back into racing as of the start of this year...took all of my senior year off to focus on FSAE.
