I just upgraded on my Evo and feel that the spring is abit too stiff at where I'm driving. A friend of mine told me that the stock spring is medium and I should buy a soft spring rate. How true is this?

Are big bore springs universal? What other brands of springs are compatible with it?
If you read back some pages in either this thread or the team c USA one there is a nice PDF comparison chart for spring rates,

Thanks alot!!

Oh Mark, since we are on the same track condition, care to share your setup? Are you running gear diffs? If so, what oil visc? How abt your shock oil visc as well?
I run gear diff w/5000wt.

I'll try and post a complete setup sheet when I get home. I'm happy with it, it's very sensitive to steering and throttle input.

Hi guys,
I am looking to upgrade my front C type holder hubs and was referred to TU0219 and TU0220. My question is, what is the 25 degrees and 30 degrees apply to? How will it affect the handing of the buggy?

How do you make the gear diff to stop leaking?

I've changed the paper gasket and the cups o-ring.
I've tried green slime on the o-rings, as well as AW grease on the cup shafts.
No matter what I do, my diff always end leaking all the oil.

Any advice?

Flat sand the gear case with 200grit sandpaper, make sure you do it on a flat surface. Afterwards lightly coat the paper gasket with silicone sealant on both sides(preferable one that does not harden). It will never leak again

Which model car are you using? what exactly is the issue you're having? I need more details before I can suggest anything.

If you are running anything other than the TM2 or TCo2C on carpet you are going to have bad on power steering, its the nature of RM cars.

I am running T2 Evo. Steering is too weak even on power and off power. I think something wrong.

what springs and oils are you running? what tires? how tight is your servo saver? what servo?

with all my carpet vehicles, I run my servo saver as tight as it'll go.

Check you steering travel too, I would guess your servo saver is too loose or end points are the issue

Stock sprigs and 27.5 - 30 oil f/b proline pinpoint and wedge combo. Savx 1258 servo. I didn't check the servo saver. Maybe it is the problem...
