You're right, I expanded the picture and notice the rod guide.

car was pretty stiff at first, but once the chassis got broken in the car worked pretty good. I still need to do a little more testing to find the perfect set up, but happy thus far. I was running 11.2s but traction rolling with carbon fiber chassis. Now I am turning 11.3s with alum chassis, but no more traction roll. The car still seems to want to roll alot though, but not flipping the car.

Ideal then so happy then with it,never would of guessed that the ali chassis needs to be worked.But as its somthing new on electric tc see this all being a new step for us all.
Will keep updated after next week first test with it.

A good way to find these springs is to do a search by part number:

HBS6543 for Silver
HBS6542 for Blue

Let me check to see if I have some as if memory serves me correct, I should have two pairs that aren't on the site.

Yes, I think so. A friend raised the deck on his t4 and it improved the car. Just seeing if any has tried it with a bd7.
