You have a starting point from the Team in Germany:
std piston drilled up to 1.2mm (31,2mm piston)
MR33 500wt shock oil
Rebound spring Short/Hard

T-Springs
Front and Rear Yellow (Carpet Medium)

Hope this helps.
Hi,

500wt oil seems to me to be thick for usual settings with standard T4 shocks, does it mean that T shox needs to be used with thicker oil than standard T4 shocks please?
Do you know about MR33 500WT is wiht Muchmore oil please?

thanx,

Nico'

There is some much math calculation on your question that i'm not the perfect person to answer you. Nothing better than testing 1o1, i will try to do that once the storm around passes, wich will be next week.

About the oil i think, but not 100% sure, that MM oil is a little thicker than MR33, but like i said not sure right now because i remember talking with Toni about that but it was a long time ago, i always try to use the same brand of oil and not to be worried about that, testing is the best and get your thoughts.

Cheers,

Hello

I had the same problem with the springs, the best way is to put all the same length together.

And the finger test.

if you put them all on the table you will see the difference, the hard short ones have less windings than the other short ones.

On our tight indoor track with dots in the corners I've removed the rebound springs. I build my 'normal' shocks without rebound and tested the T-shox with the short hard rebound springs. Car flipped very easy after hitting a dot. After removing the short springs my laptimes and car handling returned to (slightly better than) normal

Has anyone managed to get the T-Shox springs into a machine to test their rates?

I received my short Tshox this week and really love how smooth they are. I found the short hard rebound springs and even shorter springs in the package. Do the short Tshox need shorter rebound springs?
