They are actually both marketed as progressive springs.

How big of a 48pitch spur can you fit on a T2/T2 007? is 87 the limit? I have an 81 i just bought but I think I should go up a bit more?

87 is the largest, it is just protected by the chassis

I think it's cool how we are moving to a more conventional design for the shock orings... I used to mess with how many orings and spacers all the time. I bet the shaft will stay a lot straighter in some ways too, due to it being supported a little bit better (at least thats what it seems like...)

I heard the 008 shocks were shorter but not 100% sure
Is there anybody out there that knows if they will fit?
Or maybe they come standard on the new car.

Hard to say as nothing but blurry pics of the 008, I would guess that they will fit, but will not be standard, I expect the new shocks to be an upgrade like all the other aluminum parts.

Those shocks were fitted on the 008 at the euros, and if you wanna test the new 008 arms, go buy some HPI arms, exact same length.

Default Spools vs diffs and damned drive shaft pins

Hi,would be interested in some views on this. Since moving from a T1R to a T2 we have been using a spool (locked one way) at the front. I suspect there are a lot of people with this config. We have also suffered continuously (to the point where today I thought about junking the car) with the pin joining the drive shaft to the drive axle coming lose. Hell yesterday we fitted a new shaft, new axle, coupling, pin and hex screw to one side, with thread lock, - to remove any variable of worn holes (giving movement) and during practice this morning the pin on that side came out.

Now what I did not realise until today was the significant vibration on turning that a spool introduces. If you haven't seen it put the car on the bench and try it on full lock. This evening I came a across a posting on the Losi thread discussing the same point of vibration and the impacts on the drive shaft assembley through significant increased wear caused by spools.

Do you run a spool because that is what the Xray kit comes with (like me) or is it really advantageous? Perhaps importantly I run on asphalt which will not have the high grip aspects that carpet will. My project next week is to pull a diff from the old T1R, change the ratio to 1.7 and fit it to the T2. I doubt it will negatively impact the performance,indeed it will not because it will be nice to do a race meeting with drive at all 4 wheels!!!

What are the pros and cons of diffs vs. spools?

For the axle pins I use blue Locktite on the set screw, if you still have probs, use heatshrink over the axle/pins, it will keep them in.
Set the outdrives of the spool 90deg from each other to reduce chatter.
