Four race days, 5 runs each day, and my gear diff feels exactly the same as when it was built, butter with no leaks at all and the same amount of resistance. Also no wear at all on the outdrives.

Even my xray diff needed refill after two race days as it felt easier to turn like it had less fluid in it. it was just as smooth but needed refills more often.

Yes, it is possible. The standard length springs settle the car a bit more.

Actually - It isn't possible from the kit I have.

Standard length springs are too long and the minimum ride height is around 8mm.

You have to use short big bore style that come with the kit, or modify the shock bottoms(retainer and ball joint) to get them to work.


Not complaining though. This is the best car I have driven, and I have driven most.

It is possible as you have stated (With some modification). Some of us team drivers have been doing it on and off for some time now.

A few of the guys have experimented with longer springs. Most just simply remove 2mm off the shock bottom. Spend some time on this though and trim exactly the same amount off each shock. This will effect the way the spring sits in the shock and might result in some funky shock collar settings to get the car to tweak out properly.

I have a theory to use the ERYX 2.0 shock retainer and ball cup. I believe it will resolve this problem and make sure no manual modification is needed.

I tested one out and seemed to work, will know 100% when I get the parts in next week.

I am doing this so that I can test with yokomo springs which I was already using on other cars.

Has anyone tried using the short xray springs? They work well on all the xrays I've seen......would think they would work well on the D06...
???

I know Max uses them a lot. The Ridr Big Bore Short springs, and Xray Big bore springs fit iur shocks really well if you want additional tuning options. I still use the VBC springs though.

Well I sanded the bevel gears and rebuilt the diff. It spins better than it did before, but is still notchy. Will this go away after I get a few laps on it?

Yes, it should. Just go out and run the car.

That really depends on what Center Suspension Mounts you run, as well as the level of grip at your track. Assuming you are running the stock Center Suspension Mounts, you may want to pick up the E25 Suspension Mount (2.5 rear toe-in). I generally stay around 2.5 of toe-in on asphalt (Traction dependent), which usually provides me the feel and steering I desire.

Thank you, but I mean in general what the car likes, I've read that many use -co5 and e20 at rear instead in front usually f05 or f00 and c05 (some arm sweep in general)
I was thinking to buy
1 co5
1e25
1f05
to begin to have some option to set the car
Would you recommend some other suspension mount(also central)
Thanks for help

The car will work with any of these items. It is more about a setup for the given surface and driver preference.

I like to try a number of different things for testing purposes so that I can make proper decisions when they matter most. C05 and C10 are good options to have along with the E15, 20 and 25 Rear Suspension Mounts. If I were to purchase just one of these items today, it would be the E25 to run with the stock C00 Center Suspension Mounts.
