Currently the CDif setup utilizes the V2 spring and that spring really isnt designed to be compressed the entire time and will eventually get soft. I am trying to source out either a "flat" spring or belleville washer design both types are better than a regular spring since your not adjusting pressure, just holding pressure.

Thats part of the R+D process!! by the time you guys get them it will be a no brainer situation, tighten once and be done with it.

No, at least not for now but possibly HRP down the road and Bellgate distributing soon.

It will be months , i tend to take ALOT of time doing R+D to assure there are no issues. Between sending parts back and forth to drivers, waiting on feedback and producing prototypes it takes a while!

Dont really know which application will be best yet, have to figure out which one will supply enough force without bending the shaft and not slipping. my gut feeling that the flat spring (similar to a damping valve spring on a V8 chevy engine) will be best. if i decide to use belleville springs i will have to make yet another adapter to use them. The less parts i have to make in house the cheaper the end product will be!

I run a Brushless Hobbies 120 amp LT4 in my SC10 4x4 with a Novak 4.5T. Good combo for me. No problems so far.
