Default new springs

Does anyone know what the lb/in would be on the new springs? They are 274gf/mm, 260gf/mm, and 248gf/mm. I have not found the lb/in anywhere. Or is there a conversion? Thanks.

274gf/mm=15.3lb/in
260gf/mm=14.6lb/in
248gf/mm=13.9lb/in

Default EX Question

Finally received my EX and here are some question for you guys.
1. The rear hub now has 3 holes in it, and the manual is not updated! So what now? I ran the middle one for now, car is planted!
2. The left and right A- arms as per manual give you different toe-in angles, why is this? I have shimmed it to be the same and have found this on 2 cars already, Help?
3. Anybody had issues fitting a STD Savox servo? Mine hits the steering crank arm post. Once again more shimming required, but sorted.

Thanks in advance.
PS: Ran it last Sunday and I am quite happy with it considering I used mainly std rubber setup, A pity it was against a bunch of TT01`s so no competition really

1. I'm running the center hole and seems to work fine.
2. Not to sure what you mean, but I know you have to be careful installing the arms. On my first car I didnt realized the shock mounting positions were different side to side...
3. I had the same issue with my Savox. Just trimmed down the servo saver. not all servos have that problem... Don't know why.

The real shame about this is the ex would be a great car if it was not built on the cheep.They charge xray prises but tern out poor quality.So I as well will be getting out from TOP.
+1 ..my chassis has been sitting in a box for over a year now. one problem after another after another. had to use the shocks off of my old photon chassis just to keep from scraping my chassis. finally found splintered carbon graphite
o the bottom side of upper brace. right next to where many of the holes are drilled. This pos has driven me right out of tc and most likely will not go back. I do not feel it would be right to sell this pos to anyone else. So in the mean time i went to 1/12th scale in winter and run open 4x4 slash in summer in the on road class. Both of these vehicle absolutely shame anything i ever had from top as far as quality.

Your issue stands from one thing. Bad shock collars.. DID you know they replaced all of those less than a month out... and it was FREE......... That was really the only issue with the car. The rest sounds like set up issues.....
Sorry for your frustration...all you had to do was 1. post on here your issue and you would have been taken care of or 2. call TOP directly they would have fix it for you FOR FREE!! So please don't come on the forum and just bash when TOP has some of the best customer service out there. Just my .2
