Purple is the closest at 3.63, the measured rate of the gold is 3.34 lb/in but feels stiffer like a 3.80. My theory on this is very similar to the way the light blue kyosho front spring for 1/8 scale is measured a certain rate but acts a different way because it has more coils. The big bore gold is the same way, more coils.

I think if Maifield, and Phend were sponsored by avid they would run purples. I've been told a lot of big manufacturers buy Kyosho springs direct though, which makes a lot of sense.

The closest would be the Avid reds. With what the kyo gold measures at and the avid red measures at, they are pretty close.

thanks ryan. i was kind of thinking of starting with red/yellow on 2wd, and purple/white on 4wd, based on looking at user created spring charts after not receiving a response from other members, thanks for confirming my thoughts.

I'm planning to do my first race with the buggy pretty soon. I have it set up as 17.5t RM. What battery would you guys recommend for novice/stock racing? Will be racing an indoor clay track. Amain has a Protek 4700/100c shorty on sale this month I was thinking about getting if its not overkill.

I'm running a venom 5000mah with 30C with my 17.5 and haven't had any problems.

Been lurking on here for awhile, even before I bought my 2.0 great thread & a lot of great info. Frank Root constantly on this board is pretty dam cool to see as well! #TLRtothefront

Any way I run on carpet only, been running a ball diff from the start everyone says I'm nuts but I've always been use to it. I'm in A main near the top half at my local track but I know I'm leaving a lot on the table through some of the tight turns. The only reason at the moment I haven't switched to a gear diff is all the stories of them leaking. I just can't deal with a dirty buggy & everything not being 110% lol I have issues that way. It's probably been discussed over & over but is it the outdrives that leak? Or just the main gasket?

I have been really enjoying this buggy & fine tuning it. Such a quality product with amazing support.

For those of us with the exotek steering rack. The TLR bell crank ballcups and spindles are in stock at horizon FYI.

I have been using the gear diff for a few months now..Tested and found 5K gave me the best turn in and forward bite on my mid-high bite clay surface.

I replaced the outdrive o-rings with Kyosho P-5 o-rings and haven't had an issue.

Kyosho P-5 o-rings

It has never leaked and works awesome.

I'll second this. I put the Kyosho P-5's in my diff for the outdrives as well and it's been leak-free ever since.

I just rebuilt my ball diff today and was thinking about switching over to the gear diff. I may do that on the next build.

Is the gear diff heavier than the ball diff? I couldn't imagine that it would too much heavier.

Probably very close, had them both in my hands but grams are grams. I will weigh them both when I do the swap and post back
