Hey guys I found a set of Beta springs witch are softer then the Gamma springs. Can they be use on asphalt?, I run a GT-RC class. The class requires "X" pattern tires, with a 200mm body with full decals. We can run 0, 3, and 6 deg. off-set. The asphalt that we run on is very loose. Beta 274 I own a set of them. I want to Install them on the rear. WIth 324 in the front. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Top Racing (Spring Rate engrave on the spring)
Gamma 393 gF/mm
Gamma 367 gF/mm
Gamma 344 gF/mm
Gamma 324 gF/mm
Gamma 306 gF/mm
Gamma 289 gF/mm
Alpha 626 gF/mm
Alpha 591 gF/mm
Alpha 560 gF/mm
Alpha 532 gF/mm
Alpha 507 gF/mm
Beta 347 gF/mm
Beta 325 gF/mm
Beta 306 gF/mm
Beta 294 gF/mm
Beta 274 gF/mm
*Gamma Spring is design for rubber asphalt racing
*Alpha & Beta spring is design for carpet and foam tire racing

Hi Yogii,

I believe the betta springs are for carpet racing on foam tires

That's what I need, who caries them? Thank you. I have 289 Gamma on my RC-GT I slide just to much with them. It's almost like driving a drift car. I did get the diff for the EX, I cant get the belt to line up at all. Just wouldn't work with the STD Photon. Not ready to give up on the older one. I have the diff for the Photon. The only problem you have to rebuild to often, if you don't you burn up the housing. It might be I'm doing something wrong.

Have you checked with OD about the springs? While you're at it have OD ask EJ about the diff probably needs shims. EJ is the TC driver and OD is pan car driver.

I'm sorry not sure who OD is, or how to contact him or them. But I'm interested in the the springs. Also how to mount the diff in. I did get shims with diff.

Thank you

You can get them from www.apexhobbies.com and www.rcmarket.com.hk. It will be about 2 weeks from rc market depending on where you live. You can email [email protected] about getting the parts also.

I'm not sure if you know or not but you can run a yokomo gear diff. You will need to shim it. Not knocking on the photon diff but it runs fluid like a two year old with a runny nose.

I read back a page or two and realize that you like ball diffs. You should give gear diffs another shot if you haven't already and adjust accordingly. You're running asphalt with low traction you can go lighter oil. I also don't use top springs, I use the Rides haras and pro match on carpet and asphalt. I own a ex and standard photons that I run locally once in awhile for tc and usgt class.
