New Springs:



These are larger diameter than our previous springs. They are the industry standard 14.0mm ID and 25mm long. We call them the definitive spring set because we feel that these rates will have you covered in every track condition you may face.

We have:

Silver: 16.0lb/in
Pink: 15.0lb/in
Blue: 14.3lb/in
Black: 13.6lb/in

They will fit with an larger lower diameter spring perch. Same size as needed for running yokomo springs.
For a perfect fit at the top also use either a yokomo or TRF big bore spring TC shock collar.

Christian - Is it possible to change the title of this thread so that it doesn't look like something only for Associated cars? It's certainly changed into something that covers more than that and I think maybe some people look past it because of the title.

And you should update the first post to represent that this post is for more than the TC6.

Is there a reason you dropped the RSD White 20mm springs? They don't now and never did appear on your spring chart and I'm curious to their actual rating. My very non-scientific fingers tell me they are stiffer than the Black 13.5 springs but I thought the White springs were 12.5, correct?

for reference...

We were just trying to simplify things.

The whites were softer than the black springs. However under most conditions they were just simply redundant. Blacks were already soft enough and we found essentially no need for them.

OK, fair enough. I most ask because I've been running them for a while and really like them. Every time I change to a different spring I end up back with the RSD Whites. I do like a bit of a soft car that isn't too twitchy.

Last discussion for today...I think.

Has anyone been running the RX4 2015 aluminum chassis on asphalt? I know most people say to stick with the carbon chassis outside but I'm curious because I've been running mine the couple times I did race this year and it's been pretty good. I have not had the chance to compare aluminum to carbon.

No worries Troy. The new blacks we just got in are a bit softer, so they are actually somewhere in between the original white and black.

As for the aluminum chassis, I don't think there is a written rule of what works where. I have seen lots of people have good success with aluminum on asphalt. Set up is a little different, but it has it's advantages. I'd say that on bigger tracks, the extra stability is probably the biggest benefit, where on shorter tracks it might not be as big of a gain.

I don't get to do much asphalt testing these days, but I have seen some guys run very fast with aluminum.

Any help on how I should shim the new arms that come with the light weight suspension kit? I'm also looking for shock/arm position as well.

Add 3 more to the front and rear of each hinge pin as compared to stock. If it binds or is too loose, shim in either side with small shims.

For shock positions, C all around

Default TC6.2 shaft

Christian,

Why your shaft coupling diameter is smaller than the AE original one ?


Thank you

Sorry if this is a stupid question Cristian, but do you mean add 3mm or 3x spacers?

Cheers,

Glen
