Yokomo meanwhile released a couple of springs specifically for 4WD and truck.

AE V2 are very good, but it is hard to judge your requirements without knowing your track. My advice would be to check out the set-up sheets for the YZ-2T and/or the T6.1 for your track or similar ones. IIRC my son has used orange fronts and yellow rears on carpet and astro most of the time, sometimes switching to red fronts and grey rears.

Mes, Thanks for the response. Our track is on the small side and tight, gray carpet. So the AE springs your son using are off the SC6.1. The colors you mention on the spring match up. Plus you have to use the AE 9mm tall spring cups? Is this correct? Why canít you use the 6.1? You can get those in the same length and rate as the YZ2T stock springs? Just different colors on the springs.

The springs are the buggy springs released with the B6.1, ie. L44 front and L61 rear. We've been using the stock spring cups and not encountered any issues.

I'm far from being the expert so keep that in mind, but I just went from a 23 to a 25 tooth with a 10.5T motor running on a clay track. I finally have enough top speed to clear a 23-foot triple. Next week I plan to put a brand new 8.5T motor in it and will start with the same 25 tooth I have in it now. Can let you know after that how it goes.

If I was using say the Tekin Gen3 motors with reasonable timing, I'd probably start with an FDR of 9.5 or so and see how it felt and temped around the track.

For the shaft discontinued issue this is being corrected as they shoudl not have been.

I am in the process of building a YZ4SF conversion to 4WD truck. I need the stroke length of the truck rear shocks. I was going to use Associated but not sure if they will work. Factory Foote are busy I guess an not responding to emails right now on another subject. Thanks in advance if someone can get me the info.

I'll see about checking today for you on that. I run the shocks with no limiters and the longest eyelets to get the most droop out of them.
