You might want to try the front springs from the Corally 12th scale car for the optional tuning springs in the rear on the Hammer 12.

on the HPI website. they were originally made for the Super F1.
I see one that I think is correct:
A018 2 Roll Spring (A) 2.00
Is this the right one? If not could someone give me the part # for the correct one?

white spring in the driving tips section of the f1 but the part number doesnt show up on their parts list. Anyone know where else to get it?

thanks

You might want to see if BMI or Fiberlyte can make you a spare chassis and bottom pod plate out of alittle bit thicker graphite so it won't tweak so quickly. Getting spare parts are hard to find unless you buy another kit.

When I ran my Hara earlier this year on carpet or the first time for me ever to run carpet, I used grey rears, magenta fronts, associated green spring, no tweak screws, and 0.020 springs in front. My ride height was 4mm all the way around with a gear ratio of 4.0 for stock. The only thing I can say is ask the local guys for rollout.

Here's a set-up sheet me and a buddy of mine made using Excel with easy to use pulldown menu. FGR and Rollout are automatically calculated if you enter the tire size, spur, and pinion values. Feel free to use it. If you would like to enter the tire size in metric, let me know and I will show you how to edit the formula.

I've included my set-up for Carpet if anyone would like to give it a try.

P.S. Anyone seriously interested in a 2.5MM chassis for carpet, PM me.

Im hoping to order the springs tonight or friday through HPI. My car yesterday wasnt too bad. I was two laps faster with it than my L4 and yesterday was my fist time with the hara. It did push a little, but once I get the springs I could probobly get rid of it.

Let us know if you get the optional springs. I just was on the website trying to order them and while they are listed, there is no way to add them to your shopping basket. Last year I went by HPI while I was in LA and they said that they are no longer available, but that was last year. Maybe, the springs are available again. Let's hope.

I was trying to get the springs too. I don't think they make them anymore since they were from a car that is discountinued. Go an try the front springs form the Corally 12th scale. They look like they may work on the hara. I have not ordered them yet for my car since I still need to buy gifts for christmas. I don't know the part numbers. Just look them up on their website.
