Hey Steve,
Would you run a stiffer, carpet type setup on brushed concrete? Can't make up my mind how I want to setup for this weekend.

I've never run on brushed concrete before... so I really don't know what to tell you... I'd say start out with a stiffish asphalt setup... anywhere from blue springs on up to purple or maybe even black...

hey bobby, it's the same carpet that trackside has. The stuff from CRC. It's only club racing, getting about 30 guys. Most of the beginners over load on the traction compund(kinda fun to watch it drip off there tires, hahahah), so traction should be put into the track soon enough. I was thinking of this setup(simpler kind)

Front sway bar, no back sway bar
40 weight front, 50 rear
black spring front, dark green back
4r front, middle, 2r back, middle
plaid front, red back(reds are softened up so there like purples, trust me, plus my lhs has been out a purples for about 2 months, people always get them before me)

Default Congo Springs

I see some references to Trinity Congo springs above.

Matt Francis gave me a Stock carpet setup for Stockton using Trinity Congo Springs a few weeks back. I got curious about the spring rates of the Congos and wrote Trinity with that question only yesterday.

Today, I received their response...That's service!

Blue .060 24 lb. (discontinued)
Purple .065 33 lb.
Yellow .070 43 lb.

In comparison, Losi offers these heavier springs:

Black 1" 25 lb. (probably why Trinity discontinue their Blue?)
White 1" 30 lb.
Orange 1" 35 lb.
Yellow 1" 40 lb.

Hope this helps.

I know you can still get the purple and yellow congos from any lhs but the blues have apparently been discontinued. don't know why trinity would discontinue one spring out of three.

I think they needed some cash for their full page anti-brushless ad.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

i believe that too, after trinity sees all the people buying brushless, they will probably make some motors for them, lol. Whats the difference between the 1'' and 1.15'', all my springs are shorter(ithink), because my only blue one happens to be taller.

what, oh, i should elaborate. What is the differnce in weight. Say i have a 1'' spring on the back, and want to put a 1.15'' spring on, then what. Because my spring chart gives weights for both sizes, but ones 4.5..... and the other is 45...... like that, and the bigger number goes with the taller spring.

Default Spring, Sprang, Sprong

The 1.15" springs for the XXX-S are only used on the units with the lighter weights. Due to their additional strength, the heavier springs don't need to be as long.

XXX-S owners let me pick your brain, I have a friend that has his diff loosening up on him after every run, can anyone relate to this and post what the problem is? He swears he built the diff correctly and it only has approximately 4+ runs on it.
