Thanks I know about the aluminum ones but would really like to keep the plastic ones. Seems like once you swap to aluminum then something else breaks like arms or trans.

Default White springs??

Hi. I've been running this car for a over a year - got one of the first batch. I love the car and don't see myself switching.

I was racing yesterday and found myself wanting a stiffer rear spring. I was running Durango Dark Blue black springs and wanted to buy a Dark Red pair. (I could have just borrowed some as we got a lot of Durangos) She didn't have any, so I bought a pair of Durango White series springs. They are much stiffer as lablelled and in feel. One of our guys had tried some out earlier (when only the rears were available) and had said that they worked. Also said something about the rate being progressive.

I ran some laps on the car and pulled it off the track. Walked to the store and bought a set of front white series. Another durango guy (a new guy so I really don't know him) was in the store with me when I bought the rears and we were talking and looking at spring charts (the White series weren't even in the chart I had) and also bought a set of rears. He noticed a big improvement in the car. After I put the fronts on ran some laps, he asked what I thought and I told him. After he put his new set of White fronts on and we finished the day, we agreed the car was much better with the white series springs.

So, what's the deal with these springs? I know they are harder and designed for the longer suspension arms of SC trucks. The spring collar rides much higher on the shock now. That's all the info I can find. Are they progressive, just stiffer, magic, what?

First open track day with my son's new car. Broke three rear shock towers from crashing. The track shop only had the stock plastic ones so we kept putting new ones on. I will upgrade those ASAP. Are there any aluminum ones out there? Until the kid learns to drive better I'm afraid he might break the CF ones too.

Also, had a shock pull apart. (due to a crash) The stock lower seal cap broke apart. Who has stock of the aluminum ones? (Tower is showing no stock which is where I got the car)

I had my 20 year old AE RC10 Team Car to run with him and man was the DEX ever forgiving and well-behaved in comparison. I think I want my own now.

on the rear shock tower space it out about 1mm. Usually the tower breaks from hitting the motor plates upper gear cover mount. Amain hobbies has a aluminum rear shock tower.

Yes a fellow racer at the track pointed that out so we did that. The next two towers broke on the other side. LOL.

Thanks I will check them out.

Should I replace the front tower also? Not concerned about not matching, just wondering if we were just lucky we didn't break a front tower?

the front tower is fine, it's the rear that needs to be redesigned
