I mailed the list of Spring conversions to Steve @ Speed tech but they were never updated on the ALEX USA site

If you guys have any tips you want to put on the website, just send them to me by email. I'll miss them if they are posted on here. just send them to [email protected]

Dave,

The spring rate coversion to lbs doesn't match up with any of the lbs reading from other manufacture. We can't simply do a gram to lb conversion I believe. I would have to send the springs up to a friend who have a spring dyno to get the lb reading. I'm working on a chart that will include all springs (Tamiya, Yokomo, Associated, Rayspeed and Alex) and it will show will they fall among each other

cool... what rayspeed springs do you use? what is affected if you use the rayspeed ones, becuase i think they're a bit longer than the ALEX ones...

also, any tips on how to remember the different spring rates of the CUDA... (they're all black... kinda hard to mix them together, like i do with other manufacturers springs...)

ran the CUDA yesterday and today...

any suggestions on gettin some rear traction?

i'd also appreciate some tips for a long track with lots of on power sweeping turns...

thanks... - jason

Hey, if you sell those Eagle springs, I'll pay what you paid for them, and tax if you paid that too...
