That chart still doesn't include the GT4 springs.

You can find a chart somewhere on www.cml-distribution.co.uk

Just wondering, how many A-arms have you guys broken on your SD?

I've snapped like 8 over 4 months! They are really fragile!

I thought by changing to the graphite arms would make it stronger but snapped on a very light hit.

Anyone else experience this?

Asimo - I broke 1 arm the first day I ran the car, but no more since then.

Chris Tosolini - I was looking at your setup, would it also work with the Rayspeed shock towers and SS shocks, or are these only for outdoors? What difference does the shock type (SS or SSS) make? Thanks

That's a hell of a lot stiffer than I'm running with RS sprngs... I have a full set of AE so I think I'm going to have to give that setup a try... Pissed cause my damn printer died though... I can get pretty close with the AE springs as far as rates go...

I've never broken an arm. I had my second ever breakage this week, decided to go flat out in 19turn into a girder embedded in a wall... smashed the upright (my second) and the C-hub (my first).

Oh, and graphite arms will be more fragile - this is partly because they are stiffer, so they don't flex and absorb the impact. AE recently wrote up an article about common graphite myths.

I too am using the AE springs. A Purple AE front and a Copper Rear AE would be very close to what Chris had on his setup...also I think that is the combo that many of the Tc3 Racers are using on carpet.

Looks like I will have to get me some Jaco foams...gotta think if Josh Cyrul and Chris both run that combo...would be more then good enough for me...lol

I believe those spacers were molded into the piece with the pivot blocks.
