Hi, just been looking over this again. Going on what everyone has said aboout the shorter tam springs being stiffer, surely the Yelllow and yelllow short in the chart above should be swapped over? Just trying to make sure I get muddled.

Oh and bumping it back up to the first page...

Cheers
Ed

I have a 415 but have not yet run it. I will be running it within several weeks and was wondering if I should go with the TRF reversible lightweight suspension. This will be my 19 turn car. I run on carpet with foam tires. It is a tight track. Would it be worth the investment?
Thanks
Joe

I have just ordered the reversible suspension for my 415, I will be running it on carpet with a 19t in a few weeks. This will be my first time on carpet and I will probably use the standard suspension as I am going to imitate a setup I download of Marc Rheinhards car for the LRP Masters.

I posted this in the Evo III forum and would like to get some thoughts on it here. Hope you don't mind.

Has anyone else had problems with the shock shaft guides being extremely delicate? I have the TRF Fluorine Shocks mounted on my Losi XXX-S and have found that one good crash will pretty much destroy the shaft guide as well as the piston (since I have the 3 hole pistons drilled out with a #56 bit).

Has anyone else noticed this problem and is there a solution?

Thank you!!!

No problems.. with the TRF shocks.. I have re-built my shocks only one time so far and thats 6moths worth of use the teflon shims just seem to wear a little.. but I have broken A-arms and had no ill side effects what so ever.. What was acctually broken on your car besides the Damper.?

Hey, another fix is to use the black plastic instead of the white teflon in the bottom of the shock...

You posted this in the Evo3 thread as well. What you are doing is modifying the piston and removing a lot of the material that takes an impact when you have those crashes where the suspension is pulled down. Again, there is nothing wrong with the shocks for the application that they are designed for. Next time try using the bumper droop screws, not just to set downtravel but to act as reverse bump stops in the event of a crash. Again, the TRF shocks some of the best in the business and you'll be hard pressed to find anybody having problems with them.

and bump up again....

Got my new lightweight arms set through today, look good, but not enough time to get them fitted for this evening, I'll get them done tomorrow instead. Gonna be running the car with the C/A and D/D blocks tonight, running a 12x1 mod indoors. Should be a laugh.
