Perhaps I should have prefaced my comment that the car on asphalt using a spool handled like a dream. It is only going to the carpet that I have the traction roll problem.

What is the most common kfactory set of springs used with the E4RS???
I have used the factory ones in one race and thought that how could it get better??? I bought a spring set at our lhs and found out that they are for the G4 later on, they work just hope that they are not too stiff.
Thanks alot!

That's the one I downloaded which is missing a lot of settings for the 13.5 and the 4.5 isn't too much more helpful. You might as well set your own with all the info that's not there.

If my memory serves me right it gives you more entry to mid corner steering . I haven't tried it at 2.5 yet . I will try it next time I'm at the track and let you know.
