I must say I'm dissappointed that the si dosen't come with delrin outdrives as standard!! who uses steel!!!!

Does anyone know the difference between all the A-arm mounts? I noticed the standard front and rear are slightly different.....

Default blocks

a block (front)
- 0 toe, 2* kickup/down

b block (rear)
- 1* toe per side, 2* up/down

u block (rear)
- same as b block, but higher mounting location for hinge pins.

and yes, the steel drives are heavy. i will say that the delrin outdrives for the si are the nicest ones i've seen. they are burly, and fully machined to run true. very, very nice.

fyi - as some of you now know, the si uses 18x12 bearings for the outdrives. don't plan on using your v3 or type t parts here!

The barracudas come with steel fronts and delrin rears. Up front you need as much strength as possible.

Default spring set

Not sure which set you are referring to but if they are non Atlas springs I don't think they will fit the atlas cars. I think integy sell some other springs to fit other touring cars.

You're right Keith, the Integy springs are longer and too small in diameter to fit the Atlas spring perch. Alex Barracuda ones or Rayspeed fit, but the Atlas short springs on integy's site are the best.

Do the associated springs fit the atlas shocks? They are too big for some shocks.....

i don't believe that the ae springs fit. it's more diameter related. they won't fit over the shoulder of the adjusting collar, and maybe not over the spring perch as well.

trinity congo's work well, but are too stiff for asphalt
losi's will work well too, but are a shade larger.
yokomo springs are nice an short, and fit well, but are not as easy to find.
rclab pro spring kit works well too. nice and short.

I will try out the integy springs this weekend... they are the same diameter as the kit springs so should fit ok. Maybe not hard enuf for foam.

You can use associated springs if you flip the adjusting collars so the perch side is toward the top of the shock. Also you need to use associated spring perches. If I remember right....

I think I may have a different shock or something to some of you... I measured the internal dia of some ae springs and they were 13.3mm... same as the kit springs i got with the ym34si. The integy springs are a nice tight fit too so maybe the si has different shocks to the t (i notice most of you run t's)

Ok... They don't fit after all....

Ran the car for the 1st time today and picked up 3rd (Stock 23t Mecca challenge rd1). Goes great but I need more steering... What kind of setups do ppl run with these (outdoor asphalt on foam/rubber).

Are there any good spring kits (short) for these that are HARD! I don't use soft springs. I don't think the atlas springs will offer enough variation.

I found the shocks too short. What ends do ppl use... I found some yokomo ones that seem to be good but is there any better?

thanx...

Hpi shafts should fit fine and will be longer. Also yokomo gas car springs might work for you.
