Did you just switch to the HPI springs or did you try Yok orange and greens?

The schumacher springs have a much smaller ID. But if they fit the perches, they should work. Those ones you have won't work well together, though. Green and red will be too stiff. White front and rear might work on asphalt, but probably too soft for carpet.

My schui on carpet actually works well with yokomo pink front and blue rear. Better than with the hpi pink/silver. I have some more yokomo springs you can try when I get back from Hong Kong.

There's something about the Yok pink/blue springs that make them work on carpet with rubber tyres.
I have also tried the Moorespeed Red/Grey springs and they work very well on the BD7 on carpet.
The HPI springs are probably best used on tarmac.

I'm using Black fronts and Green Rears or Pink rears pending traction.

Hi, my rear diff is also leaking a little, you can see the rear belt has oil on it.
No leaking around the outdrives but just were the belt sits on the pulley.

Also does anyone run the little foam piece which sits above the Black Bladder in the Yokomo shock.

Many thanks
