Everyone:

A while back linger measured the Tamiya and Associated springs at his work place using a materials test system. Here are the values he came up with:

Associated White 40.4 lbs/in
Associated Yellow 33.8 lbs/in
Associated Purple 31.2 lbs/in
Associated Copper 24.6 lbs/in
Associated Red 23.2 lbs/in
Associated Gold 18.8 lbs/in
Tamiya White 16.5 lbs/in
Associated and Tamiya Blue 16.3 lbs/in
Associated Silver 14.5 lbs/in
Tamiya Yellow 13.0 lbs/in
Tamiya Red 11.8 lbs/in
Associated Green 11.5 lbs/in

My question is, has any one been able to measure the newer Tamiya springs yet? Specifically:

Tamiya Super Hard (53635)
Tamiya Ultra Hard (53636)

I'd love to know their values so I can insert them into the above chart.

Thanks!
What is it worth to you...... LOL.

So far so good. Would have wanted the red ones but no stock . It seems like the chassis is stiffer now. Are you planning to get one?

With all due respect, I thought the principal behind a forum such as this was to share information. To answer your question, by knowing the exact spring rate, I know how these springs will compare to the stiffer Asc springs. This way I can adapt setups that use stiffer Asc springs to use Tamiya springs. I though it was fairly obvious...

Gerrych- I'm curous to know how those aluminum tranny housings are working. Are you racing the car? It looks very nice, BTW. Is it eating oneway ring gears with the Aluminum tranny housings?

Look at this setup- http://www.mpowered-racing.com/evoiiifoamot.html

He's using D/A blocks on the front hingepins. I don't understand how that supports the front hingepins. Got any ideas?

I have no idea why he went with the D/A setup. It sweeps the front arms slightly towards the rear of the car. I can tell you this setup is mint on short tight tracks. (Our clubs track is 80x32, rarely is the straight the full 80) I have been using it with great success in recent months. The main difference is I use rubber not foam, so 50/30 for oil and yellow/yellow for springs, CS-27s on all four corners. I have had to play with the springs at times as well as slight changes to rear toe, but other than that, I am using the setup as described on Martin's site.

Im not Gerrych but Im also using the Square aluminum tranny housings. The oneway ring gears did break even with them but not as much. Finally the custom oneway stopped breaking the gears. But the Square trannys are good in other areas. Chassis is stiffer now (original 2,5 mm) and the transmission runs much smoother.
