Difuser, TryHard, Ben.C and TRF415boy, Thank you all for spending your valuable time on helping my problem.

OK, I know the soft spring = the more weight transfer. But I want to know does it mean:

1. The soft spring on rear = more weight transfer to front when off throttle or
2. The soft spring on front = more weight transfer to front when off throttle?

Second question, I still not sure on this. When on throttle, if I use stiffer spring on rear then I get more weight transfer on rear. So, I get better traction on rear. Right? Vice versa, if I use stiffer front spring when off throttle. I will get more front traction but less traction when on throttle. Because stiffer front spring is easier to move weight to the rear. Isn’t this correct too? Hope I can get the straight so that I can working on rc in the right way.

In answer to your first question, its 2.
A softer spring will allow more weight transfer to that end of the car.

Your second Q;
You'll get less weight transfer, so less traction.

I sounds like your looking from a full scale perspective. One thing to rememeber is that with our cars, we have down travel limiters (the droop screws), which effectively overide the effect of the sping on the opposite end of the car. For example, On-power, if the front arm is resting on it's drrop screw, then the front spring effectively won't contribute to the traction level, that will be down to the rear spring.

This is mainly right but as ed pointed out, droop stops limits the influence of spring stiffness on the unloaded end of the car.

As for the first question, it's very simple, it works the same way on the rear when it's on power as it does on the front when it's off power. I'll resume things so it's clear:

Front:

stiffer springs --> less on AND off power steering
softer springs --> more on AND off power steering

But at this end, droop has more effect than springs when coming on power

less front droop --> more ON power steering
more front droop --> more ON power stability

Rear:

stiffer springs --> more on and off power steering
softer springs --> less on and off power steering

less rear droop --> less OFF power steering
more rear droop --> more OFF power steering

Hi Guy's
My friend want's to order parts to convert his MSX centre into a Reinhard TA05 centre.
Can someone please give me the part numbers to convert the centre pin, centre hub and anything else he will need please.
Both he and myself have the TA05 wide pitch hubs but he wants the centre as well.
Thanks Guy's

Thank's Troy
So If I use all the pieces do I still use scott's MSX bearing hoders and bearings? Also how does it stay in , It's just that with the MRE it looks like it just sit's in and stays there with the top alloy mount holding it in. and with the MSX it is held in by a cerclip at one end and a grub spacer with a allen bolt at the other end.
Can you please verivy that with just these parts it will fit.
# 3454395 RC Direct Center Shaft: 49394
# 3455643 RC Spur Holder Plate: 49283
# 50589 RC 5mm E-Ring: # 51213 RC TA05 Center Pulley 16T
# 53534 RC 3x8mm CSunk Hex Head Screw Titanium.
I will have to tell him how much it will cost him with all the Part's.
Thanks Mate
Addam

I will verify with an MSX, and the MSX MRE before I order the parts, but the I think that it is the same on both, just the MRE uses a alloy bearing support.
