I'm almost done with updating the website, I do have all the springs back in stock.

The way Alex Racing spring works is they first go by wire diameter, and then number of coils. So a part number 14625 will be 1.4mm diameter wire at 6.25 coils. And they go up in increments of .25 coils. The reason for 1.5mm diameter wire is I believe to have something in between .25 coils. The difference of going from 14625 to 14650 might be too much in Alex Racing's opinion, so something in the 1.5mm diameter will fall between the 14625 and 14650.

I will have lb reading of all the shocks together soon (from Alex, to Yokomo, to associated, and Tamiya) Ling (who also drives a cuda) up north have access to an engineering grade spring dyno, and I'll have him work out all the math for us (he is a ME, he loves this stuff...I think )

Thanks, As soon as they are showing available I will be ordering. Do you have the shorter steering posts in stock too? Thanks and look for my order soon.

I checked the Speedtech site again and they do have the 1.5 mm springs in stock but not the 1.4 mm ones that I need. Will the 1.5mm springs work with the front and rear and why do they have 2 different spring sizes to start with?
The Atlas short springs for the YM34 type T fit perfectly, they are onls available in 4 grades though.

Hi Kevin,

I'll have them updated in 5 minutes. Also, we didn't get more of the shorter steering post in stock this time.

Default Shock length

Hey guys...going through my new toy rebuilding and cleaning it up. On the alex racing site Dave Berger's setup sheets show he runs longer shocks in the rear than the front. Any reason for that? And how is he measuring them? Top outside of shock cap to outside of ball end? Or pivot ball to pivot ball?

Got to get this xenon car back together for this weekend.

A very sleepless night for me, so I've been trawling the net and found something that put a smile on my face I have my name on the team orion website
Npt easy to find though, you need to go into the archived news items to http://www.team-orion.ch/global/global_news.asp?id=1972

So where have you guys had your names in print? (telephone booths or on the toilet wall doesn't count )

If your going to run the Short arm set up..

Run the rear shocks at 60.5mm~61mm and the fronts at 59.5mm~60mm
it works best with the short arms...also try to run oil 35W and higher
