Hey guy's, on the 008' T2 Xray does the new black springs come with the asphalt version or does it come with the standard gold and silver springs?

It comes with the black springs.
The Gold and Silver ones are the kit springs for the '007 and the first T2.

it be more obvious if the 008 marketing pictures on the xray.com site showed black springs rather than gold/silver springs

Ran my 008 for the first time today on Asphalt and wasnt that happy with it.
It had loads of steering but loose on the rear. I managed to get it nearly there but still too much front end. Any ideas guys?

Thanks

Initially I had the exact opposite problem: too much rear end and not quite enough front end!

Here are some ideas to try on the rear end to help "lock it in" more.

Make sure that your rear diff is in the high position.

Check your wheelbase from the rear... Don't have your arms too far back or else it might make the car too free on-power.

Make sure you have enough rear droop as well. Depending on the tire size I usually run 4.5 - 5.0 on the droop guage.

Rear camber at least 1 to 1.5 degrees.

So have we determined and are certain that the 6 cell EU chassis will not work with the US kit?

If any of you have a new EU you are selling drop me a pm.

On the 008 EU. When running the multi-diff do you have to change to the 50mm drive shafts? Seems to me they are too long and binds.

Remove the plastic spacers from the backside of the out drives. This will allow the use of the long CVD shafts.
I run the long shafts with my one way (multidiff) with no problems.
This is as long as you run the kit arm spacers... if you try to narrow the front track with thinner spacers it will bind with the long CVD's.

I ran my new 008 on Sunday and had the same problem tons of steering but after a couple quick changes my car was cery good. I ran the stock set up and chaged the fallowing:
-Rear shocks to 4 hole piston instead of 3 hole
-15lb rear springs
-20lb front springs
-I disconected the rear sway car
Unfortunetly I didnt hae any parts other than spring to try but got my car to work really good. I am pretty sure that I need a rear sway but just a softer one than the stock but didnt have that option to I just disconected it. Hope this helps.
