Hi,

the shop is also "switchable" to english.

I am looking for the new bigger spring retainers, which will fit to the HB Springs perfectly.

The new Tamiya Titanium blue Turnbuckles are very nice! They seem to be invulnerable. The colour is also more compatible to the 416 alu parts.

Hi All
What is the shock component difference between the set in TRF416 box and the new TRF product in the plastic bag with TRF color label? In their own describ that they are all "hard black coat"...So...why Tamiya says that the new in plastic bag is "special black coat"???
Thanks for any advice!!!

They are black in colour on the top and bottom caps as well as the spring collar. Goes with all the special black anodized parts recently released for the ta05.

on carpet Im running the 2,5mm - but my new set up is so different from the set-up on the 2,25 that i cant say the difference on the chassis only.

but car is still handling great, precise and fast.

New changes are
9,5T LRP Brushless
C/C Xa/E
and Hara springs "SuperHard" front and "Hard" back

otherwise everything is in accordance to Gilles DHI set-up

Running 9,5T - taking out the steering screw in the top deck gives to much steering....my 5

Default Spring Ding a Ling

Spring measurements revisited.

I got a hold of the HPI spring set (thanks J Arluck!), and I measured the spring rate. Two springs were measured and the results averaged.


HPI

6542 Blue
Published 15.29 - measured 14.28

6543 Silver
Published 16.91 - measured 16.21

6544 Gold
Published 19.04 - measured 17.49

6545 White
Published 20.33 - measured 19.84

6546 Yellow
Published 21.73 - measured 20.52

6547 Red
Published 22.40 - measured 20.61

6548 Pink
Published 17.92 - measured 16.74


In addition, I measured a new set of Tamiya Springs (milky blue set) and compared them to the old values from many years ago.

Tamiya

White 15.27
Milky Blue White* 17.05

Blue 14.08
Milky Blue Blue 14.86

Yellow 13.33
Milky Blue Yellow 13.10

Red 11.86
Milky Blue Red 11.53

* Tamiya has changed the coil count on their white spring in the Milky Blue set and the spring stiffness has increased significantly. The other springs remain virtually unchanged.


Note, if you view the entire force vs displacement plot, in general, the HPI springs are more linear and the Tamiya springs more progressive. This non-linearatiy happens within the first 0.05" (1mm) of travel and then everything is extremely linear.

So, 13.5 rubber on carpet. Spool or one-way? I heard some of the guys in Vegas ended up faster with a spool? How do you know when it's time to switch?
