Could somebody tell me if is possible using short springs of other brands?

Best regards

Has anyone found anything that helps the car carry more speed mid corner?

Macki, you can try some of the following: Less rear toe, arm sweep, raise your rear roll center, stand up your front shocks, take away droop F/R, stiffer front spring.

If your car is too stuck, the first thing I would do is take away rear toe.

I just recently built a T4 and raced it once. I had massive corner speed. Granted it was on asphalt, the biggest change when my car was too stuck as traction came up was reducing rear toe.

T-Shox do short springs that are compatible, slightly longer than Xray but still fit the short T4 shocks

Can't use Tamiya, HPI or RI, short and mini springs?

Nothing wrong with Xray springs, just gives you more tuning options

Not sure how their birds setups will do . Grip looked stupid high there and grove was plenty wide I bet if someone got off the grove car would feel like it was on ice ...

Justin the grip at Thunder RC is twice as high as the grip at the birds.

Does this mean we might start seeing some more option parts? :-)

Ethan, definitely.

While we are not done with the TC6 platform development, we are diversifying into deeper T4 development. The XRAY parts have been selling really well and with the popularity of the T4, it makes sense for us to pursue this market.

As I had mentioned earlier, we have springs on the way and machined pistons and bladders should follow soon. We are also working on Titanium screw sets among other things.

If there is anything in particular anyone wants to see we will definitely entertain ideas for upgrades. Much like what we have done with the TC6, we will strive to make upgrades that end users want.
