also keep in mind the inner diameter of your clutch bell has alot to do with it.. when i mount my clutch up there is very lil room between the bell and the shoes...
inner diameter..yes I never thought of that ! that would make quite the difference...

I would guess 1.1 springs would hurt mileage and cause slip in normal conditions..... I have run 1.1's, but only on engines with a soft bottom..usually on strong engines like the JL i would start with .95 and work up if needed....From my own experience the 1.1's allow far too much free RPM before the clutch engages and tends to lose quite a bit of forward acceleration...These days I run M2C 4 shoe setups with reg soft shoes....however I have run many sets of Dynamite Max life shoes and had nothing but issues when I attempted 1.1's on any engine with nuts..........

I am not doubting you guys at all, I am just shocked your able to run 1.1 without smoking your clutch out, as thats all that happens to me when I try running them....Heck on my 28's I try to run the heaviest shoe I can find and the lightest spring possible as well as I usually gear up at least 1 tooth and sometimes 2....

Like I said it's a D8T thing not a engine thing and people that run the D8T know that the 1.1's work great. Some prople run a softer spring but just about every one I know runs 1,1's with the D8T

front center will work on buggy or truggy. rear center works only on buggy. you just have to put a couple washers between the bulkhead and the axle.

i use them both on my buggy and like i said before they are rock solid

Answer-RC shoes and 1.1 springs here too.
No issues to date and fantastic wear rate on the shoes. I used to swear by the Fioroni clutch but it's Answer all the way from now on.

hopefully he has a couple weeks to stay at home and read all 217 pages and 3,242 posts. lol. there needs to be a whole forum dedicated to the D8T. its impossible to find anything in that D8T thread, i have searched it many times. why don't you just answer him or give him a link to something other than a novel to read...that has tons of useless informatin...granted it does have lots a great info...once you find it in the haystack.

EVERYTHING in this thread has been covered in the D8T thread and if you would learn to use the search button you could find nearly everything you need.

OR..go to the last page of the D8T thread and ask there.

OR..start a new thread for everything about the D8T and make it harder for everyone to find anything.

I did answer his question. I gave him a link to the best spot on RCtech to find answers about the D8T.

Hey,
Can any of you guys help me out with shock spring colors or a color chart with spring rates for the d8t ?? i own (3) of them and would not race anything else. we have big jumps out here and i bottom out (chassis slapp) hard all the time and dont want to do anymore dammage, i had my axial .28 rr-2 motor mount crack due to the stress of landing so hard, i have the stosk colors front and back but want to go stiffer without over doing it......... any advice from you "big-air" jumppers would be greatly appreciated.
