That's not quite true. Swapping the springs around will give the car more steering and more rotation.

First rule of Yokomo springs, Yokomo springs lie.

Sort of...

Do a poor mans spring test of compressing a blue and pink together and you will see what I mean.

The Pink definitely starts out softer.

How long have your shock bladders and o rings been lasting? Specifically the blue rings and black bladders?

i think i posted this a while back. i asked umino about the springs once. he told me that the blue is actually better in front in high traction if i remember correctly. however, in most cases pink/blue is good combination. at the ETS races the run the springs sometimes the other way around because of the high traction and traction rolling. they try to go very soft on springs and sometimes oil too to decrease traction rolling as the chassis then scrubs more on the ground and helps to counter traction rolling as well as it somewhat decreases the preasure that is put on the front wheels which again helps traction rolling issues.

I do agreed what your saying for rotation, what I know it is true... I mean(the more rear traction) to more rear stable on power...every body car is set up diffenent and what ever works for them it all good..

At IIC, there was a lot of talk about teams going to softer springs in the front than the rear. Traction rolling wasn't an issue at that race, but rather just traction in general. It was hard to find enough steering. Hayato was doing crazy things, like mounting his body so far forward the rear wheel wells extended past the back of the body.

It look so neat for the LRP FLOW with the BD7. I should wait for the LRP Flow for my new BD7.

Bought an ESC with the together car kit. First time in my 20+ yrs of RC, I bought an ESC without any manual or instruction in the box and worst part is the ESC & program card manual couldnt be find in the respective product homepage. Is it so environmental friendly for cutting down less tree or is it so difficulty to print an single sheet of paper?

i have not seen/heard of anyone using them. but you should drill a small hole in the upper plastic mounting piece to let the bladder breath.
