Yes I'm talking about that one....

Those lasted me 3 months of racing every weekend before I notice excessive wear... That was running it with a 10.5 motor....

It might not last that long in mod.

True Francis !

I saddly experienced that they last only a few runs in Modified Class when used on the front (with the spool).
Better keeping them for the rear.

I highly suggest you to change for the stainless steel ones.
You can also use the Tamiya (44mm long) CVD with their own wheel axle.
Only issue: the outer bearing will be out for about 1mm, so you will have a front width 2mm larger than the normal. If you have no other choice, it's always good to know...

Default Uni

the Uni's will be a little smoother in transition..especially when doing an extreme sharp bend.

but I've gone thru a few sets in the front running 13.5..
the rear have shown minimal wear. I oil/grease them pretty much after every run to keep 'em smooth
(note: I find the LCG wears them more than my prior BD, ran the BD on carpet and currently LCG on asphalt)

but i do believe it's also partly how smooth you're with the throotle...I have a bad habit of just snapping the throttle when finishing off a turn so I'm sure that contributes to the wear.

I've never worn the Steels in front just greased them up often.

Yes, the aluminum wraped on the joint tends to stretch to an oblong shape and generates some slop... It took 12 weekends worth of racing before I saw the wear. I ended up using it for another month after before I snaped a unit after a crash.

the xray springs make the car roll very much.
it feels very good on the track but usually they lack a little aggressiveness and precision and this is where the hpi springs gain their advantage in laptime

the yokomo springs are very progressive
the car "works" a lot more and on rather smooth tracks with flowing corners they generate a lot of steering and this is when yok springs are faster

i have tried xray springs a lot of times but always went back to either yok or hpi

Thanks for the explaination. So now I guess I need to start running HPI springs.... All I've run lately is xray springs and Hara springs.

Schumacher USA is a US distributor for TiR racing. They don't have $hit in stock, so Im gonna order directly from the UK. Shipping is only $11 USD and the CVD's are priced normally, about $33/pr USD.

I actually ordered the TiR cvds from them directly. Cost more but got them instead of waiting.
