Many Yokomo drivers at the ETS used the silver springs, either both front/rear or in combination with e.g. pink.

Silvers are not too soft for carpet.

It should be noted that the ETS carpet was not high grip, at least according all accounts from the pro drivers
The only cars rolling over there were from hitting dots

yeah I know, I am not completely retired, just mostly.... I have culled most of my cars except for a TC and an F1, and will still race club when I can..

I was honestly just worried they would be only doing a short run of the conversion kit, like the 14 one.
I probably wont upgrade my 15 it for a little while, ill wait till everyone gets the setup sorted first..

I don't think it was the ETS carpet, but more a question of the new Volante tires, where the ones used as control tires were from a revised batch, and not like the ones we all had purchased earlier and used for pre training for ETS.

The early batch of the Volante tires wore very quickly, the new batch of Volante tires were harder and had thicker rubber etc.

We ran the BD7-2016 at ETS with all silver springs and had no traction issues.

I admit the grip wad not super high, some even reverted back to the carbon chassis, starting on the alu chassis. But the grip was not low, and it was more due to the tires than the carpet.

In any case, not a race to judge what warrants a good carpet spring/setting on the 16" as of yet ?

I've expressed myself wrong. the statement refers only to me and modified. I was with xray springs faster and more constant than with Sylver Sylver. 16 feels a little like xray t4, less like a Yokomo BD7 15 and the xray t4 15 I used mainly the 2.5-2.8 and 2.6, which was always good

Does the Xray springs fit OK or do they need some kind of modifications ? Could be interesring to try the progressive springs.

The Xray springs fit perfectly, they are just a little shorter.

I love the progressive springs for front axle ... I can only recommend it for testing
