That's what I plan on doing Frank. Just didn't know if there was a number it comes out to so I know I'm not way off when I build them. Thanks!!!

Frank, any solution to the binding transmission problem yet?
I'm assembling my third 2.0 and it has the same problem, actually worse than the others. I had my hand on the chassis when I tightened the screws this time and I could feel the chassis bend slightly. This one doesn't have a gap between the case and the front suspension mount like the other two did.
I noticed when comparing the new truck to one of my 1.0's that the bottom of the case is parallel to the bottom of the chassis on the 1.0 but the 2.0 slopes down in the front just a little. I'll try to take some pics tomorrow. I need this truck for Friday so I'm not sure if I'll have much time to investigate the issue.

If you look back in this thread a page or two I was able to solve my problem my removing a little material from the lower idler gear area of the case itself. Mine is tightened down and no longer binds.

Default Orange standard Spring rate?

Frank, maybe you can shed some light.

I recently bought a g-force spring tester and have tested 33 sets of springs, all TLR except 3. All were within my personal tolerance and acceptable, but the standard rear Orange TLR 5170. Rating is 2.9. I have 2 sets of these springs and both tested out as 2.04 and 2.08? This rating is closer to Yellow (2.0). Also one of the 4 springs had yellow paint under the chipping orange. Have you heard anything like this? Is 2.9 incorrect?

BTW - the LF springs all tested within .02 of published rating.

I haven't heard of the orange springs being out of range. How long are the springs you have (in mm)?

both are 64mm, one has 10 coils (2.08) and the other has 9.8 coils (2.04).

Added pics of Yellow is the new Orange. You can see where the paint was originally yellow and later painted orange. These were new in a package when I bought them. But clearly these Orange are in fact Yellow and the numbers confirm it. I only suspected something wrong when at my last race I changed springs to stiffer and did not get the results desired. Now I know why.

I will order another set and hopefully I get the correct set this time.

I did see that and the case is clearly part of the problem. I dremelled mine a little last night and after doing that it was clear that the lower idler was rubbing a little even without the trans in the chassis because it was much freer afterward and stayed that way even after bolting it in the chassis. To me there are two things going on though, the case and the case not fitting the chassis correctly and getting stressed when tightening it in the chassis. Hopefully Frank is still working on this issue and TLR will offer a revised case or something.

Default Spring testing

I have the g force tester and am certain I got the same results. I know the yellow and white sets I have, two of each, were off too and both colours of both sets had essentially the same value within a few percent. I will. Heck my spreadsheet when I get home.

Tyler built his truck to kit setup. We had to run spring adjusters almost all the way done to get kit ride height. Is that right? He is gonna run it next weekend on a track that is low-med grip. Went to 27.5 in rear shocks like suggested. Should truck be pretty decent on that style of track?

Yes, that's normal for the adjusters to be that far down. All my trucks are that way.

Noob question. What tires would i use for the front on an indoor clay track?? I've only raced on outdoor dirt and i use ribbed tires for that. Would I use the same style or use the same as I would for the rear??
Thanks for helping this noob out!!! lol

Does the kit come with 1 or 2 sets of wheels? Yellows?
