Purchased some purple springs a few weeks ago and didn't notice this until I started building the 15. Anyone have any idea why the yellow spring is flipped or its a new yellow spring that I'm unaware of? Yellow and pink is flipped on the charts.

just test the springs with your fingers and see if the chart is correct.

The yellow spring is stiffer than pink. My question was pertaining to the chart being flipped and a new yellow or pink spring being introduced to go along with the added purple.

Did you get the new spring chart (white paper) with your 2015 kit or with your purple springs?

To me it looks like the paper is wrong... If you go on Yokomo's website, it looks like the Yellow spring is between Purple and Blue.

It came with the purple springs.

Good catch. Glad to know, I was confused and thought maybe there's a new yellow and pink spring rate also.

The tialn coated shafts is a must in my book. I have setups with double Oring and me no likey. Some people swear by it so it's up to you.

I rarely have problems with my diffs and they're all smooth without me doing anything additional. Certified owner of many yokomo BD.

Double seal setup

Spacer BD-S2W
Oring YS-7HG

Ya. Shimmed way back and shorter wheel base. Not by much though. About 2-3 mm. Its wider by about 1/2 mm each side.

Very interested to know how it works out. I have a lot of ARC cars at my track and the new kit has that setup and waiting for one of those to hit the track. The concept is nice. What parts did you use?

Hey Donny, I've very interested to find out also, wednesday is next race day. I basically used the whole front end set up including the CVDs. I had to tap a hole in the front of the arms to sink a set screw in to accommodate anti-roll bars and added 16mm screw through the front suspension mount to hold the ball. Add a turn buckle and bingo...
