I pm'ed him and he got back to me already. Im going to order one tomorrow.
Now the only thing I need are the springs to tune the rear suspension.

Has anyone had luck finding any, or does anyone have any to sell?

Thanks

I ran my DP Sledge Hammer yesterday for the first time at the last indoor race at Stockton. I used the old school front suspension, reversed, to make a little shorter wheelbase. The car worked awesome and I think I am going to use it in 19T at the US Indoor Carpet Nationals this week! With the shorter wheelbase, the car turns in hard and once you make a little driving adjustment for its increased turn in capability, the car is fast. I had the second fastest lap in the class which also had some modified, brushless cars in the class with us. Carries a lot of corner speed. I am extremely happy with the car.

If you use the old school front end, remove enough material from the top of the steering blocks to allow a #4 washer to go on top of the steering block before you put on the e clip. This will allow you to run smaller diameter tires in the front and still maintain the proper ground clearance of 3mm. If you use the reactive caster front end, get the lowered control arms from IRS. Part number IRS4014. http://www.teamirsrc.com/caster.html to allow for smaller diameter front tires.

OOPS! CORRECTION!! Remove material from the bottom of the old school steering block, not the top!! My bad.

The corally springs are shorter than the hara springs, is that going to make a problem. When I installed them, one wont not seat in the plastic and at extreme pod movement would pop out of the plastic piece.

The stock hara spring i believe is 1.1mm and corally springs go from lower than .9mm up to 1.2mm. They dont fit right out of the package so modifications are needed. They are shorter than the hara springs so I dont know if that is a problem. Ive given up on it already.

Default hara springs

Hi all.
If u put more pressure on the side springs via the screw..isnt it the same as adding a stiffer spring? im adding some crc damper tubes as well..should make it stiffer.
ive got the corally springs comming. ill see how they go..
im making a chassis that has a straight front and wider sides.(to attach nerf bars) ill post pics when done.

Default springs

hi all. i
f you put more pressure on the pod springs via the tweak screws, isnt that the same as a heavyier spring?
Im getting the corally spring set to try for myself.
Im making a chassis that has a straight front. (to attach a bumper) and wider sides to attach a nerf bar. Gonna add crc damper tubes as well..that will make it more rigid.
ill show pics when done.

KO949, Fut 9650, or Hitec's mini will fit fine.
