What springs are most 417x guys running on asphalt? Can anybody point me towards a tuning set?

Either silver or blue HPI springs...I have been running Blues and they work very well on a lower bite surface.

See chart for information...

Perhaps, if you could provide the dimensions of the TDX shim, that would be great!!

Thanks!!

The HPI springs all look much heavier than the tamiyas... Do guys ever run Xray springs on their tamiyas?

Keep in mind that the HPI springs require the large diameter retainers. I've also used Reflex Racing springs on asphalt with great results. These work with the stock retainers. If your in the position of buying new springs I would start with these two (HPI and Reflex). I do not know anyone that runs the Xray springs on their Tamiyas.

I have the large retainers coming in the mail. Those reflex springs look pretty nice.. do they hold their shape/tension well over time? Also, is there a reason you/others dont run tamiya springs?

I tried these guys before. There's a good chance the blue won't match. I even had screws in the same order in various shades of blue. They then told me that they have a lot of difficulties with blue screws. Might be ok if you are in the US and returns aren't a hassle. But if you're outside the US, I'd think twice...

I've tried reflex, they are ok but I still prefer HPI or Ride. No one uses tamiya springs on asphalt, HPI have better grip and feeling and are have finer steps in tension. Normally just silver all round, sometimes blue or pink

500k oil or higher, or even better putty. Oil will still leak, but slower than 1k. I frequently use a putty diff if I want to make my car easier to drive or get into corners better.

But with the putty after five runs it gets under the big side spur gear forcing it out and then gets damaged, do you still use sand paper to work on the spur gear or assembly directly from bag.

I use the gears straight from the parts tree, no sanding just trim. I've never had a putty diff fail

No problem, I'll finish the blog tonight! That gearing sounds ok to start with but you're best to check with the stock gurus
