You will be fine with the Xray springs. But if you are running rubber tires, HPI springs may work better for some tracks. Many european team drivers have been using them lately.

Its just the LHS don't carry very many pairs or sets for Xray so I know theres strong AE support around here so I thought why not use AE springs.

Peded: I guess what i was trying to say is that i dont think that you would have bad luck with AE springs but even if it says 14lbs it dosent mean that it will work the same as an Xray 14lb spring. it will most likely have different size wire, different number of coils and a different overall legnth even though it has the same rating.
When i used the Ae springs years ago i struggled a bit with finding the right spring because they jump around a bit in the set with the copper spring being very progressive and i thought that it ever fit into the set.
Xray for example offers their regular set of springs but also offers the gold and silver spring that are more progressive but with the same Lb rating as the white and yellow.

I've had my eye on the xray springs sets trying to decide if I'm going to buy both sets, but I realize that I'm never going to use all of them. For those of you that are running on asphalt, have you noticed that you have a tendency of staying below a certain spring weight - say 25 lbs?

14 LB Yellow/Gold - Super-Soft
15 LB Blue-Green
17.5 LB White/Silver - Soft
20 LB Light-Blue
22.5 LB Blue - Soft-Medium
25 LB Dark-Blue
28 LB Violet - Medium
30 LB Light-Purple
33 LB Purple - Medium-Hard
35 LB Light-Red
38 LB Red - Hard

I know this is the T2 007 thread but i assume a lot of you had the T2.

So my ? is, on the T2 kit there are 2 sets of the things that go onto the end of the shock shafts to connect to the A arms,

the manual says do not use this one but to use that one,

one is longer and one is shorter,

and i pulled all the parts off the parts tree so i dont know which ones the manual says are the ones to use or not !


so should i use the longer or shorter ones?

Also any one know if a 77t spur & a 32t Pinion (48pitch) will fit ok with room to move up and down a bit in the motor mount, in a T2.

its for 540 Silver can racing where i need to be able to adjust rollout between 46mm and 50mm


thanks.....

rmdhawaii: for asphalt i dont think you would have to go stiffer than a 22lb spring.

Losi123: i always use the short ones with no problems, and i assume that those are the ones that they tell you to use in the manual. as for the gearing, sorry i dont know. but im sure that their is a way to get that roll out if it dosen't.
