Yep they are in that set but I believe the set only includes one pair of each springs. Here are the pistons I used 68768

The 6543 springs are what comes in the kit no? I have always used even on my xray the silvers,blues and pinks. They are great springs.

I know with the 2012 I had to push the car to it's limits to be able to get a good lap.

So far with the Yokomo I have to take it easy to get a good lap. If I push it I lose time.

What about the TCXX same concept? or in between?

I am very interested in going TCXX for this season.

I am coming from the older Schumacher MI4LP, the car was very tough and rarely broke, its biggest issue was a very loose back end.

The original TCX was not a very popular car locally due to being quite fragile.
One local driver seemed to continually be doing very well and would lightly tap a board and snap something in the front end.

Have the plastics been altered or beefed up at all to help prevent this breakage?

I am looking forward to seeing some more of these cars in action.

I am new to hot bodies cars and the set up sheet and just noticed the option for the front arms. I see by flipping them you get a total of 4 different shock mount positions. Nice! now to verify I installed mine correct

Fred,
Did you have different rear arms on your car? I seem to remember 2 swaybar mounts on the same side of yours which explains the longer sway bars that came with the kit. Will this be a future part number?

Really I have seen the TCX take some hard hits and walk away un scathed. I def wouldn't classify it as fragile.

It does have a lot of shared parts TCX/TCXX

I don't have to force this car to work the was it supposed to, it does it naturally. The last car I drove was painfully difficult to get it to feel the way that I wanted it to and once I was able to get close I had sacrified so much in other areas it was frustrating. I could get the other car to get around the track and be competitive but it was just too much energy in doing so.

They're much better from what I recall seeing a year or so ago. Case in point, yesterday I got creamed 2 out of 3 times, I'm talking the other car hitting mine and it going end over end and into a wall once...no broken parts!!! That should answer your question

They were/are our only arms. I just have a 75115 in #4 hole on the rear arms so I can use a wider rear bar if I'm looking to negate rear grip.

Cool I see the kit came with two extras of those so that makes perfect sense! Thanks and thanks for all the help and the setup sheet!
