The airtronics version of whichever one Naoto uses, I forget the number. You are almost required to use a receiver pack with it though, the 5volts from a booster will not give it enough speed.

If you can find the Sanwa version however it has much better specs, but coupled with a much higher price tag and shipping cost from overseas

Yeah that's the one.


For comparison the one I use is the Airtronics 94761Z High Speed High Torque Micro Digital Servo, $64


6.0v from my receiver pack makes it 68 oz/in. torque and 0.12 speed.

I have just ordered the Rev7 with the old skool front end. I have never used this front end before. Where can I get those aluminum inserts shown on your car? I cant find them on the Speedmerchant site.

Default dampner tube conversion

Hi there

just ordered 2x dampner tube conversion kits for my R5.2...

can anyone tell me, if i'm currently using Associated silver side springs and 20wt oil what would be a good comparison with the conversion? is it possible to use the associated holders and springs with the conversion?

My car's pretty good handling wise, I only bought the conversions to ease maintainance.. side shocks are a pain!

thanks

We're actually out of those front end stiffeners. That's why you can't find them on the site right now. Not sure when they'll be back.

My recommendation would be .018 sides and green spooge. That's what I've had the guys that asked run and their cars are awesome.

The conversions come drilled with our carriers(6-32 vs m3). You will love our side springs.

The maintenance part is awesome, but the car is suddenly super smooth through corners and feels super linear in response to your steering inputs. Best thing I ever did to my r5.

Maybe he means this Not sure what it's compared to like 15,000, 20,000, etc... Or if it's a grease, silicon lube?



But question for the speed guys. What exactly is the noticed difference with the linear side springs? Do certain conditions apply. I ask cause most cars have the progressive

Thanks

The linear sides are much more forgiving. You don't have to have exactly the same preload side to side, much easier to tweak. This is why everyone uses them in high grip conditions especially (look at Vegas cars, Blackstock's 12th, Cyrul's WGT) tons of people use them.

Everyone that tries them does not go any slower, they just notice a car that is easier to drive fast.
