are these new belts to replace the stock belts?
or is it something just for mod? might have to test these on my '12 mod car.
any advantage for a 17.5 blinky car?

The reflex springs are the best upgrade available for the T4 on tarmac. They've taken my car from very good to fantastic. Get two pairs of silvers as a base setup, and a pair of greens for the front if it gets oversteery.

They're more progressive, which for me has improved the bump handling, widened the setup window so that I hardly ever change springs, and reduced lap times by a tenth or two.

I need some advise. My car is pushing off power. It takes a while for the front to set where I can get back in the throttle. I had one of the top drivers at the track run it, and he loved it. Ran faster with my car than his, but I think its driving style. I am wanting the car to take a set in the front faster. I have 350 shock oil front and rear with the 4.1 shock pistons, 2.7 front springs and 2.5 rear springs. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Try the graphite front arms. This makes you gets heaps more steering. They're are much stiffer.

try the 2.3/2.5 springs in the front,and maybe 2.7 rear(it worked for me)
post a set up sheet and go from there,there are to many variables to just take a guess

I found that once grip got up, the 2.7F and 2.5R combo is a bit too pushy. I've dropped the front down to 2.5F, and used the progressive 2.3-2.6R in the rear, seems to give it a nice balance, but still easy to drive.

Anyways, just picked up some RSD asphalt progressive spring set. Anyone know the ratings as compared to the Xray springs?

-Purple: 18.4-19.0 lb/in
-Red: 17.1-18.0 lb/in
-Green: 15.2-16.0 lb/in
-Silver: 14.8-15.8 lb/in
-Yellow: 14.5-15.2lb/in

Try increasing rear droop.

If that didn't do enough, try decreasing wheelbase. (Moving rear axle towards front.)

I've been very happy with 2.5-2.8f and 2.5 rear. I also liked blue rsd front black rear.

Thanks for the advise. I am going to try some different spring combos and how that works. I was thinking that might be the problem. So I ordered some springs and will have to go testing. Thanks to everyone.

The graphite arms have no flex at all, the standard hard arms have very little movement.
When I made the change on the T3'12, which had medium arms, I barely noticed any difference, so my worry is that there would be even less difference on the T4.
