At my local track many guys use the Yokomo blue all around for LRP CPX

Thank you!

The closest in rate would be Xray 2.5. The Yoke blue is a 14.2lb spring. The 2.5 is like 14.3.

The springs are very different though. Also keep in mind the XRAY has the front lower arm shock hole much closer. Together than cars like the Yokomo which would make the front softer.

Personally I like XRAY 2.5 and 2.6 on our carpet track, that is when I am. Not using RSD springs.

Thanks and yes, the comparison seems to be difficult with the lower shock tower

I've ran 2.7 front/2.5-2.8 rear and had good results. They can work well on the front too depending on how you drive the car..... I noticed that the car set well into the turn but had a midcorner push! This was going from 2.7/2.5-2.8 to the 2.5-2.8 all around with roughly the same setup.

Are the 14 graphite arms measured the same as the regular graphite arms, or is the only purpose for them to bolt the on the carbon fiber stiffeners?

The rears are the same, the fronts are slightly different. The fronts have 2mm of extra material at the center of the arm so they should fit the T4 but you wont be able to adjust wheel base.

And if you're looking at fitting older graphite arms to a '14, you just have to add 2mm extra shims behind the front arm.

Default Ball cups rubbing

Hi,

I've noticed that the front ball cups on the outer turnbuckle gets very close to the inner wheel, almost touching in places. Can you use the flatter ball cups like on the steering turnbuckles or is there not as much movement in these?

Yes, I think I saw someone using the flatter ball cups, so it should work.

If you use the standard ball cups and just file off the extra material needed to clear the wheel you should end up with a stronger set up

Hi Eric
looking at your setup for the IIC did you really run with rear eccentric bushings with one on the inside and one on the outside as per the set up sheet?
