In the past year that I went for some soul (car) searching, (ha!) I notice there is not as many factory team settings available through places like Petit RC.

I put my Yoke on the asphalt at Gulcoast this past weekend and it was a great experience. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I ran to my fullest potential on asphalt once again (let's not mention carpet).

These were the settings I used for the weekend on the way to a second place finish and fastest overall laps of the weekend. A little more practice on asphalt and I think the win could have been in the cards.

The settings include the ESC settings as well, scroll down for the Chassis. Shameless plug now: Our new definitive springs were awesome on the asphalt. I used Pink Springs all around after having tested HPI Silver, Ride Red and Silver, as well as Yokomo Pink and Blue, I settled on ours, which was a very pleasant and rewarding experience that they were the best. On carpet, I have been running our blues over the Yokomo Blue/Pink Blue/blue combo I was using before. A little more stability, keeping steering and overheating tires less.

Anyways, here is the set-ups:

I am using the standard ball studs on the car.

For the RSD Pink Springs, part no is RSD154

For the Definitive Spring Full set (2 Pairs each) the part no is RSD151

Speaking of spring combo's, I have to ask:

I generally only see set-up's using pink/blue or blue/blue on carpet. If I felt Pink was too hard for a particular track condition and I tried Blue the front end seemed to roll too much and was too lazy in reaction for my preference. So I bought a set of Yellow's and tried them up front keeping Blue rear and it felt just right to me.

So my question is, why doesn't anyone run the Yellow's? They're rated between Pink and Blue and yet people move from pink, skipping the next softer spring, directly to blue, am I missing something inherently wrong or inconsistent with that spring?

I have used Yellow with good success. I use black and purple quite often as well. Whatever helps you get around the track faster is what you should be using. Don't worry about running what everyone else is running, the only way to get better and push the boundaries with set up, is developing your own.

I'm not worried or concerned, just curious

Do you mean yellow front or all 4?

Best regards

I think he means up front. Sometimes when a Pink front causes a traction roll, but a blue seems to be to mellow out the car too much, a Yellow is a pretty solid alterative.
