Finally got the rest of my SSG parts, new servo, and orion 3600 carbon race pack (new track is only allowing ROAR approved lipos). Changed back to the pro4 silvers up front and xray golds in the rear and changed the wing on the body the car handles so much better now. Also did some part swaping with my Pro4 for alot of the purple bits.

Additional info for the Hara springs,
as you all already know, they are matched springs. Don't compress them all the way down by your hand or they are matched anymore.

Be careful when you're comparing them to other spring or something.

Korey, it sounds like you did have good testing. I also have similar result as yours. Did you try the AME upper bulk heads?

Yes very true. It actually holds better than servo tape does. And clean up is easy too as the glue just comes off in one sheet and doesn't hurt the chassis.

The stuff that rc market posted plus the stuff called "goop" works just as well and can be found at target and walmart

Yesteerday was so fun. Scotty's set up was great. I stayed will linear springs all night as they felt really good. I went with Xrai 17.5 up front and 15 in the rear. I also played with droop and wond up with 6 up front and 5 in the back using the Losi kit supplied droop gauge. I'm also running the stock diff out drives that come with the pro spec diff. I took off my alum one's. We'll see how the wear and tear goes running them in 13.5 The norcal area is here by on CYCLONE alert......

Clint- The outdrives wear freakin awesome!!!!

I have two race days on them and about 14 packs through them and they seem to be holding up pretty good. Since I have been running 13.5 the diffs still feel really good. 13.5 doesn't put the stress on the diff the way my 3.5 use to. The next time out I hope that I can run the new R9 body. I plan on going to the same track again and see how much more I can push the set up. Hopefully I can bring Scotty with me the next time I go.
