Im not sure but its softer than 7lbs. Most of the time a 10-12lb spring works best.

Yeah, that's a T-bar spring. Chicky's right (as usual) you need to get a 10 and a 12. Maybe a 14 if you're bold.

I couldn't find a part # for the 10lb spring. Only from 14lb and up. Anybody knows it? It would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

stormer lists the 12,14,16,18 springs as 411214, 15,16,17

the older series (tbar) springs black stiff (411175) is a 10lb i think?

when assembling the upper arm what do you guys do if it's binding? mine is pretty tight and I tried sanding it a little bit but its still a little tight. any suggestions or what shims do you use?

are the inserts bottomed in the caster block? let it run in a little before you remove too much material.

also try using 12r5 caster shims (they are easier to adjust)

Hello guys!
I'm finishing building my S120L with new chassis type and center battery.
I need spur gear and pinion, but i am afraid to get wrong ones looking at the space on the car; can you suggest me some combination?
My motor suggested 31,5mm and tyre diameter is 47mm.

Other question: have you got a good setup for hi traction carpet with mod?
Thank you!
