The HPI spring ratings are pretty useless anyway as they seem to be rated much higher than they actually are. If you run an HPI silver spring (rated at 16.9lb) back to back with a Rayspeed blue spring (somehwere in 14lb) they will give similar levels of grip on the track, with the HPIs feeling smoother. It is very hard to give a correct poundage rating for progressive springs. This is something I have said many times before.

v0rtex, we compare them to HPI springs because it was the extensive use of these by yokomo drivers that triggered them to release their own line of progressive springs!!! Many bought the HPIs and still use them, hence the usefulness of comparison. Also, my response before mentioned HPI springs as the person asking the question wanted to know the differences.

Thanks Ali, I didnt realise the HPI's were also progressive. Makes sense now though

Default Springs

As for accuracy, arent the Rayspeed springs supposed to be one of the most acurate out there?

Vortex i agree with you, the progressivesprings feel alot different mid corner and on corner exit. i actually prefer them in our larger faster track!!

Anyone know if the "blades" shown on the previos post, (afew ago now) will fit the standard driveshaft/oneway set up?

Dont think so. Have a look at the gaps in the one-way pictured, they're quite large. My guess is that the blades will fit a std Yokomo dogbone, but will only work in the new Bomber one-way.

As far as I know its the complete opposite There are many horror stories about how the poundage ratings have differed greatly, and I would stay away from these!!!!!!!

Guys

Time for 1 of those really quick answers. What thickness is the main chassis, 2.5mm or 3mm?

Cheers in advance.

Stu

P.s. Quickest answer wins a prize.

Ali, cheers mate.

Right, your prize is priceless so cherish it, it's a piece of worldly advice:

ALWAYS ask what the prize is first, just to make sure it's not some dodgy piece of advice.

Stu

Ah, Stu

I'm good my man, you? You managed to get a tranny in the little one's hands yet?

Will find out where I got mine from and let you know. But Yokomo have actually just released them, in various colours as well.

But more importantly, how on this planet did you wear them out??

Stu

they may not fit the standard yok out drives on the one way, but AE tc3/4 out drives fit the yok one way and have a bigger gap. the blades may be a goodie just by themselves

Billy Eastons set up would not help you, as there were too many proto type parts on it. Alex Siemantel's set up was pretty close to Billy's, but using stock parts, he qualified 4th in Stock. If you want it, e-mail me at [email protected] and I will send it to you.
