I thought blue is hard, white is medium yellow is soft. This is how it was eplained to me.
Am I right when saying hard typ -> high grip conditions, softer ones -> lower grip condition

RS-04/Light Blue is used for high traction surfaces
RS-03/White is used for most track conditions.
RS-02/Yellow is used for low-traction surfaces.

Hi martin wondering what springs and damping you would run, with the droop you mentioned earlier on medium traction asphalt. 63 mm seems to be equal to 5.5mm droop at rear with suspension mount spacers removed.thanks for any reply.

I currently run the new-style yoki springs (green in the front and pink in the rear).

This combination is a bit softer than rayspeed blau/green (which i recommend, if you only have rayspees springs)

errr are you sure? rayspeed blue/green ispretty much the equivelent of the new Yok blue/blacks! (softest 2)
Green/Pink is more like Rayspeed Red/White, only more progressive.

Seeing as Yok orange are the hardest, I doubt it.
Put it this way, the std kit (setup for Japansese conditions came with Rayspeed White/Blue.
The new Masami kit (also setup for these conditions) comes with Yokomo Orange and Pink I believe? Or green/blue I'm not sure, but still shows that orange is harder than rayspeed blue.

Default wish there was

wish there was some carpet stuff for the BD...
but I don't think Yokomo considers the carpet market a profitable one for them since it's mainly U.S. racers.

I've talked to a few reps...but they didn't seem very interested. Even just a Yokomo 3mm top deck would be great. the stiff chassis is nice ..but still a bit of flex to it.
