Cristian,

Do you have any springs that are compatible with the new TRF417V5 Premium shocks?

Anybody have links to some youtube videos that would help a guy understand setting the roll center and why you would change it?

Thanks for the tip on this, but that didn't work. The axle is still a press fit, even when the outdrive is completely removed.

CT, are you out there?

Ran the T4 asphalt springs for the first time today. 17.5TC, green fronts, silver rear, 350 oil all around. Car was dialed! Made my first A-main on pavement. Thanks RSD!!

Yep, I highly recommend these springs! They make the car transition through the corners a lot faster than the stock springs. More steering, but still provide good grip throughout! Silver/ Silver works best for me in stock at my track.

I was able to run your fan mount as well as your new hard bumper for the t4 today for the first time. Both worked flawlessly as expected and I would recommend both. The new bumpers are even better than the last ones! Great products!

I don't know if this helps or not, but I had the same problem with older axles, once I put new ones in they fit fine,
I think the older axles get slightly out of round with age. A quick hit with the wet and dry on older axles where they were rubbing and they were also fine.

Just ordered a couple of sets of DCJ's, does anyone know of any other manufacturer's hex wheel clamp and pins fit ??? Cristian was out of stock

Beth.

Beth, any industry standard M2x10 pins will work as well as hex clamps. So hpi, xray, tamiya, etc will do the job.

We will have more in about 10 days.
