oh swell I had ALL the xray springs until I sold the car - now I gotta go looking again, oy

I was hoping to do this all with HPI springs and not switchover...I do have a whole set of Tamiya springs around as well...

Korey - thanks for posting that

I found the Tamiya's to be a bit too tall but I do know a couple of guys that said they made them work. I wanted to go with all HB springs as well but it's been a nightmare trying to get them. I shouldn't have to order over seas for some springs... I had the complete Xray set already so I put on the one's I wanted to try and went from there. It works and I have them all and other racers can get them a lot quicker than waiting for the Hara springs to come in. I also think that the AE springs will work but I gave them away when I got rid of the TC5. They are cheap enough to buy again so it's no big deal. Try your Tamiya springs and see if you can get your ride height to your desired settings.

I got myself a silver associated spring which is 14.5 but it seem to be harder than the silver cyclone spring which is 16.9. Am I wrong? It also seem to be smaller in diameter.

I find the Hara springs in stock at HB USA site. Search from WCE Cyclone option parts. They don't tell those are Hara's, but you can tell by the list they posted according the color! It's cost $11 some, thats the one!

Thanks bro. It might show in stock now but we were waiting for springs and a few other items for a while so we either ordered from over seas or made other items work.

thanks!

So I checked into the rear toe in problem. Talking with a few people at HB USA they were saying that they were told that HPI/HB Japan has addressed the problem, and the new corrected hub carriers should be within full circulation across the world within a month or two.

Probably not exactly what you guys wanted to hear with it possibly being a while, but at least they know about the problem and are fixing it!

For right now just look at the hubs. If the drill path is all cattywhompus then look for another set. Clint had a great solution, and the 3 Racing hub Carriers are also a good alternative.
